Up Front for May 22, 2012 – NATO, “Tools of Violence,” and Chocolate

What did they actually agree on at last weekend’s NATO summit? Gareth Porter tells Sonali Kolhatkar that the United States has secured language that will let special forces keep doing now-infamous night raids in Afghanistan. Plus: The Oakland City Council considers a ban on protesters carrying –quote—“tools of violence”—including . . . shields. We host a debate between councilmember Pat Kernighan and Occupy Oakland activist Laleh Behbehanian. And Arcelia Gallardo joins us for a a look at the history and politics of . . . chocolate.
