This Week's Show
This week, we are thrilled to interview Professor Henry Giroux, Global Television Network Chair in English and Cultural Studies at McMaster University, Canada. The author of more than 50 books and 300 articles, Dr. Giroux is one of the founding theorists of cultural pedagogy in the United States. He has been named one of the top 50 educational thinkers of modern times. We will talk with Dr. Giroux about his zombie metaphor as he wrote in his book Zombie Politics and Culture in the Age of Casino Capitalism. He has written extensively about the Occupy movement, the neoliberal attack on education and other pillars of democracy, and the U.S. decline into authoritarianism. This is a must-hear show.
We would also like to draw some attention to the MI CATS. Recently, the court ruled against three protesters from MI CATS - Vicci Hamlin, Lisa Leggio, and Barb Carter - who had engaged in non-violent civil disobedience for attaching themselves to construction equipment to try to draw attention to and slow down constructon of a pipeline. The three activists, mothers, grandmothers, and volunteers in the community, were immediately handcuffed and taken into custody prior to sentencing in March.
