12/24/2015 – Immigration Detention Hunger Strikes and Alex Hing.

On tonight’s show:

First we hear from Paromita Shah from the National Lawyers Guild and Sasha W., from NQPIA about the ongoing hunger strikes spreading across the immigration detention system. Though a lot of people are striking, today we’re focusing on the Bangladeshi strikers.

And we have a rebroadcast of an interview Marie and I did with Alex Hing. Alex started a revolutionary organization right here in San Francisco’s Chinatown and he was involved with the civil rights movement, the anti-war movement, the free speech movement, he rode buses through the south after Martin Luther king’s death, and he’s currently a union organizer, a chef and a tai-chi master. He’s one of our old school teachers, and he had a lot to share on his experiences as well as some advice for the younger crop of movement leaders. DSC06267
