As Donald Trump spends millions to promote U.S. militarism on Independence Day, anti-war activists gather on the national mall to denounce tanks and war planes used as political props.
And as outrage grows over increased abuse of asylum seekers by the U.S. federal government, human rights defenders mark the tenth anniversary of the U.S.-backed coup in Honduras, which they say has given rise to a narco dictatorship, that is forcing Hondurans to flee north to the U.S.
Voices: Gerald Horne, Liana Montecinos, Sean Blackmon, Andrea Molina, Juanita Cabrera Lopez, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Medea Benjamin. Music by Navasha Daya, Conrado Muluc and Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five.
