Protesters from all over the United States have descended on Philadelphia to demonstrate against the Republican party and Texas Governor George W Bush. Thousands marched through the city streets this weekend to chants like "Hey, hey! Ho, ho!" H.M.O. has got to go!" "What do we want?" "Health care!" Among the activists that are protesting are hundreds, if not thousands, who have taken part in the two major anti-globalization demonstrations that have taken place in the last year against the World Trade Organization in Seattle and the World Bank in Washington, DC.

Guests:

  • Jia Ching Chan, an organizer with RUCKUS and JUST ACT!
  • Peter Chung, an organizer with the People of Color Convergence
