This weeks show features Dan Rasmussen (author) and Bob Avakian (Chairman of the Revolutiontary Communist Party)
This weeks guests are Amy Berg (filmmaker/director); Debra Sweet (National Director World Can't Wait); Karim El Hakim (filmmaker/director).
Berg talks about her new film "West of Memphis", the story of how the West Memphis 3 were framed, convicted and carted to prison for a crime the system knew they didn't commit. Sweet talks about the growing threat of war against Iran and a call to stand up against it before it starts. Hakim talks about his new film "1/2 Revolution", the story of the 2011 uprising in Egypt and how it was hijacked by the military and other pro-US forces.
This week's show is drawn from an interview with Bob Avakian, Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, on many of the questions of the revolution, questions that are now being asked and debated: What's the nature of society? Who's responsible for all the horrors in the world? How do we change it? And what are we going to do in the new world?
