March 3, 2014

University of Ottawa Professor Dominique Arel explains the different factions that make up the Ukrainian government, why the far right has played a role in the opposition movement, the competing claims about anti semitism in Ukraine, Russia’s shocking decision to invade and why it could get even worse.

Kai Newkirk an organizer with 99Rising explains why he engaged in a public act of protest at the Supreme Court, how his moment of protest was historic for the Supreme Court, why the corruption of politics through money is the major issue of our time and how we can take our system back.
