10 Days To Shake The Super Bowl

Jan 16, 2018, 09:00 AM

This week we talk to Hani Ali from the Black Visions Collective and Veronica Mendez-Moore from the Centro De Trabajadores Unidos En Lucha, both in the Twin Cities, about organizing a ten day resistance to ramped up police presence, the attacks on workers, and the corporate bacchanalia leading up to the Super Bowl Sunday. Also, we speak about the shockingly overlooked news that Serena Williams - one of the great all-time athletes - almost died during childbirth. We also have “Just Stand Up” and Just Sit Down awards that are connected to each other, as well as some very special shootouts to our patrons! All that and more on this week’s show!
