This week we feature a sound montage of the latest Occupy Wall Street activities including Monday’s raid in Oakland, the movement to halt the deportation of Pancho, and the Mario Savio Young Activist Awards at OccupyCal, which went to Christsna Sot, Josh Healey, and Apex’s own Ellen Choy!
Professor Valerie Soe and a student in her Asian American Community Arts Workshop at San Francisco State University join us to talk about their culminating event, Asians Moving Power.
And we talk with Terry Park, the recently crowned Mr. Hyphen, and Melissa Hung, founding editor of the premier magazine on Asian America.
