Why Is Turkey Attacking Kurds In Syria?

Turkish forces are attacking Kurds along its border with northern Syria in a move that could threaten to unravel the progress made on the Syria war. On our show today we’ll turn to Kani Xulam of the American Kurdish Information Network to find out why this is happening and what the consequences could be. Then, we’ll cover a number of news stories related to Amazon and the retail giant’s attempts to disrupt traditional notions of worker rights. My guest Jessica Bruder who has written about the conditions of Amazon workers will join us. We’ll also get a glimpse of her new short film CamperForce produced by Laura Poitras about Senior workers living in RVs that Amazon relies on.
