Tonight we speak with Marshall Island Foreign Minister Tony De Brum about the lawsuit filed in San Francisco’s ninth district by the Republic of the Marshall Islands over the U.S. and eight other nuclear nations’ failure to disarm under the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty.

Then, we’ll speak with award-winning Sri-Lankan-born author, Nayomi Munaweera about last week’s elections in Sri Lanka that ousted Mahinda Rajapaksa after nearly a decade as president. The newly elected leader Maithripala Sirisena has promised a return to the parliamentary system and said, “What our country needs is not a king, but a real human being.”

We’ll round out the hour in conversation with Bay Area Muslim American leaders to get their response to the Paris Attacks, the global media coverage, and rising racism against Muslims.
