We speak with economist Richard Wolff about the economics behind the immigration catastrophe and about 6400 retail stores closing in the U.S. in 2017. We also speak with Gerald Horne on the international scene and other voices, unheard voices here, marking the anniversary of the historic Women’s March that just occurred. And headlines.
On The Ground: Voices of Resistance from the Nations Capital (www.onthegroundshow.org) is a weekly show that brings alternative news from DC. We cover social justice activism and activists, those who are in the DC area and those who come to DC from across the nation or from across the globe to speak truth to power.
