camp_destroyed4_ws-765x496Authorities have just destroyed the Calais refugee camp in France displacing thousands of migrants, among them many unaccompanied children. We’ll turn to Sabia Rigby of Voices for Creative Nonviolence, who has been visiting Calais and will share stories of how the refugees created a community that has now been decimated. And, journalist Marcy Wheeler joins us to dissect the latest Clinton email scandal and how FBI Director James Comey and his agency have thrown out the rule-book. Plus journalist and author Brian Gruber will take us on a whirlwind tour of nations the US has militarily intervened in. He’ll discuss his new book War: The Afterparty; A Global Walkabout Through a Half-Century of US Military Interventions.

Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
