More than 300 people demonstrated against Vice President Dick Cheney in San Francisco earlier this week. He was speaking at the posh Commonwealth Club. Inside the gathering five people were arrested, when they disrupted the talk, chanting "corporate crook." We are now joined by one of those activists who was inside the club.

Guest:

  • Andrea Buffa, an activist with the San Francisco based group Global Exchange.
