helToday on Flashpoints, we discuss Haiti’s long awaited parliamentary elections, which just wrapped up yesterday. Next we talks with an organizer of the boycott against Driscoll berries in response to the terrible working conditions in the field of Baja California. Then, we’ll take a look at controversy surrounding Bernie Sanders with the backlash he’s received from the #blacklivesmatters movement. Finally we return with Harvey Wasserman with a update on efforts to close the last nuclear reactors in California at Diablo Canyon.
