Rising Up With Sonali

Hurricane Harvey Threatens Nuclear Reactor Safety

Hurricane Harvey threatens the safety of two nuclear reactors in South Texas. On today’s show we’ll speak with Paul Gunter of the group Beyond Nuclear about what the dangers are and why there has been no response from authorities. Then, Hamid Khan of the Stop LAPD Spying Coalition will join us to put into context the resumption of surplus military hardware being distributed to police departments around the country. Finally, we’ll get a follow-up report from the planned fascist demonstrations in Berkeley, California with our correspondent Meleiza Figueroa who was there and can set the record straight on mainstream media distortions of violence from the left. Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
