Uprising

Flashpoints – May 5, 2004

Listen podcast

We celebrate the struggles and triumphs of the Battle of Puebla AKA Cinco
deMayo, historically a festive celebration which now reclaims it’s force as
a struggle against oppression.
A conversation with UC Berkeley Professor David Montejano on the changing
American landscape, plus live coverage of the Cinco de Mayo actions in
Sacramento. And a Mothers day report from Colombia with Colombian filmmaker
Marta Rodrigues on the often horrific working conditions behind those
beautiful bouquets and of course the Knight Report.
