In this episode of Days of Revolt, host Chris Hedges sits down with two residents of agribusiness capital Salinas, California: civil rights attorney Anthony Prince and radical councilman José Castañeda. Together, the two have been fighting against the corporatization of Salinas’ political system, and its impact on agricultural workers and other residents. Hedges and his guests discuss the city’s growing homeless population, and the ways in which Prince and Castañeda have been able to make a difference.

  3. This is so far beyond scandalous, it is nothing short of extreme fascism. After Milton’s Paradise Lost, only Blake can come close to encapsulating such a treacherous state of affairs:

    O Rose thou art sick.
    The invisible worm,
    That flies in the night
    In the howling storm:

    Has found out thy bed
    Of crimson joy:
    And his dark secret love
    Does thy life destroy.
