Instead host Marianne Barisonek speaks with Tom Devine, Legal Director at the Government Accountability Project. Mr. Devine has assisted over 5,000 whistleblowers in defending themselves against retaliation and in making a difference, such as shuttering accident-prone nuclear power plants, checkmating repeated industry ploys to deregulate government meat inspection, and blocking the next generation of the bloated and porous “Star Wars” missile defense systems. He has authored or co-authored numerous books, including "Courage Without Martyrdom" and "The Whistleblower’s Survival Guide", law review articles, and newspaper op-eds, and is a frequent expert commentator on television and radio talk shows.

Take Back the Land

Host Sue Supriano interviews Max Rameau about Take Back the Land, which he founded in 2006. The group initiated a bold campaign that sparked a national movement: they began taking over foreclosed and government-owned homes, and moving homeless families into them. They have successfully moved in over 20 families to date, and many have used the opportunity to save up money and get back on their feet.

Max is a Haitian-born Pan-African theorist and organizer. He moved to Miami, Florida in 1991 and began organizing around immigrant rights, especially for Haitian immigrants, criminal justice issues and police brutality.

In 2008, Max authored the book Take Back the Land, recounting the experiences and political theory behind the Umoja Village.
