Open Wounds, Open Wars: Veterans and the Fight for Our Lives, Against Empire

We need to be open and honest about what the empire means and how we all suffer from it – and how these diverse but shared experiences can be our strength, not our fault lines. As we rattle thrones, we must build solidarity and heal – with veterans. Marine veteran and senior fellow at the center for international policy, Matthew Hoh sits down with us to talk about veteran health, suicide and recent news from the empire.

Act Out! covers the news corporate media won't touch. Stories from the front lines of our movements to fight and build a better world. Act Out! is the brainchild of activist/writer/singer Eleanor Goldfield.  Focused on creative and grassroots activism, this weekly show gives updates on activism around the country, focusing on artists and creatives, grassroots actions and how people anywhere can get involved, from tweets to marching in the streets. Watch every Saturday on Free Speech TV or on-demand right here.
