We’ll hear sounds from the recent protest in front of the Indian Consulate to free Dr. Binayak Sen, human rights activist. He was arrested in 2007 for protecting the right of Adivasi people, India’s indigenous people. Produced by Vstar with special thanks to Preeti Shekar.

And, Masao Suzuki, economics professor and long-time activist, talks about his run-in with a FBI agent. On September 24, 2010, several anti-war and international solidarity activists were issued subpoenas to appear before a grand jury in Chicago. He believes that his encounter with the FBI was part of that nationwide sweep. The Committee to Stop FBI Repression will be having an organizing conference at the Humanist Hall, located at 390 27th Street in Oakland.
