Veterans demand: A Right To Heal; Teachers demand: Education For All
A Right to Heal: Veterans organizing to combat the widespread trauma of our endless wars continue a campaign demanding A Right To Heal. We'll speak with former soldier Maggie Martin, an organizer with Iraq Veterans Against the War's campaign Operation Recovery. The campaign seeks to heal both soldiers and communities by ending the practice of redeploying injured troops. www.ivaw.org/operation-recovery
And: Teachers Rebel! As the Chicago Teachers Strike continues, we'll look back the teachers' strike in Oaxaca, Mexico, which launched a social justice movement. Inspired by teachers' demands for free education and quality schools, community members took over Oaxaca for months. A possibility in Chicago?
