Veterans Offer Powerful Gesture of Solidarity With Standing Rock

veteransThousands of veterans are headed to Standing Rock, North Dakota this week to express solidarity with water protectors in a moving way – simply by putting their bodies on the line as protection. We’ll speak with Ashleigh Jennifer Parker with Veterans for Standing Rock about why this is an important fight for vets. And, Donald Trump is promising to save Carrier jobs in Indiana but critics say he’s selling out to corporations. We’ll speak with Bart Naylor of Public Citizen about it, as well as how Trump’s cabinet is dominated by elite, billionaire Wall Street fat cats. And, author and academic William Goldsmith joins us to discuss his new book Saving Our Cities: A Progressive Plan To Transform Urban America.
