Rising Up With Sonali

Breaking the Silence on Yemen’s Horrifying Cholera Epidemic

As Yemen, the poorest nation in the Arab Gulf struggles with a US-backed Saudi war, a horrifying cholera epidemic has now made things worse. On today’s show, we’ll examine the crisis with Benjamin Wiacek, the Yemen media lead for Oxfam and ask why there is so little coverage. Then, Sarah Anderson of the Institute for Policy Studies will remind us that although corporate CEOs are distancing themselves from Donald Trump, some are dabbling in white supremacist ideology themselves. Finally, our correspondent Arun Gupta will join us to discuss how the left can organize after Charlottesville. Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
