This week, dozens of protestors have been arrested while blocking a new road being constructed for the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota. The Mall of America, outside of Minneapolis, is the United States’ largest mall, and the new road under construction rests on the native ancestral lands of such nations as the Mendota and Dakota. Organizations including Earth First, Women’s Earth Brigade, the American Indian Movement and other groups are involved in the protests.

Guest:

  • Solstice, a community organizer in Minneapolis.
