‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR JULY 2, 2021: Climate Activists Risk Arrest, Protest at White House… A Celebration of Peru’s Socialist President-Elect and a Defense of the Indigenous Vote… Voter Suppression Wins for Now in U.S.

As deadly heat kills hundreds in the Pacific Northwest and Canada, sets fire to entire communities, and overwhelms power grids, climate activists stage demonstrations over three days in front of the White House, demanding that President Biden not abandon his promise to fight the climate catastrophe. And, outside the Organization of American States, Peruvians and their supporters celebrate the socialist President-elect of Peru, Pedro Castillo, and defend him against fascist attempts to overturn his win. Plus headlines on end of tour for father and brother of Julian Assange, updates on Surfside condo collapse and MUCH more.

Voices: Taysha Martineau – Indigenous People’s Network, Rep. Jamaal Bowman, Rep. Cori Bush, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bruno Franco of Frank Analysis, Randy Credico, Barbara Arnwine.
