Democracy Now! 10/22/19



 

Hundreds of thousands around the country are taking to the streets to demand the country’s leaders step down.

Democracy Now! speaks with independent Lebanese journalist Kareem Chehayeb about the dire economic conditions, austerity, and corruption, as Lebanon enters its sixth day of massive protests.

Princeton University assistant professor and author Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor joins Democracy Now to discuss her new book, “Race for Profit: How Banks and the Real Estate Industry Undermined Black Home Ownership,"

Later, Taylor speaks about the promise of Bernie Sanders and how his policies could "transform the lives of the poor and working-class people."
