This week we’ll be covering stories of resistance and resilience. Tune in to hear inspiring stories from the Southeast Asian community — first, the story of Lipo Chanthanasak a laotian member leader of the Asian Pacific Environmental Network who was recently honored at the White House as a Champion of Change.  Then, we bring back on air the voice and story of poet and ex-prisoner Kosal Khiev.

 We’ll also get a sneak preview of this weekend’s big Moana Nui teach-in in Berkeley — a two-day event covering militarism, globalization and the “Pacific Pivot”, with 45 speakers coming from 20 different countries!

And we play some tracks from Hopie Spitshard’s latest album “Sugar Water” which drops next week!

With Host Ellen Choy.
