Rising Up With Sonali

What is Behind The Rise of Jean-Luc Mélenchon in France?

On today’s show we’ll examine the upcoming French Presidential elections and the rise of the leftist candidate Jean-Luc Mlenchon. My guest Jean Bricmont will join us from Paris to explain the significance of Mlenchon’s candidacy. And, Robert Weissman of Public Citizen will explain what his organization has found about Donald Trump’s meetings with corporate CEOs in the first few months of the presidency. It turns out Trump has met with 2 CEOs a day on average. Finally, Erik Assadourian of the World Watch Institute will join us to discuss his new book and project called EarthEd: Rethinking Education on a Changing Planet.
