What It Pays to Starve the People + German Reflections

There's only so much you can take from someone. And with the recent plans to starve some 700,000 Americans, we may have reached that threshold. We dive to the bottom line to uncover the real impetus behind such legislation and the horrifying ways in which we spend money that could - and should – go to we the people. Next up, We don't shut up, we shut down – a message, parallels and lessons from a recent climate court case in Germany

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.
