Today we revisit the situation in Honduras as activists there regroup for a new round of protests targeting the US-backed regime of Juan Orlando Hernandez even as new reports surface of increased death squad activity and political assassinations. Then we focus on the rise of for-profit private detention centers and their role in housing immigrants detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement or ICE and the US Border Patrol. Next we ask the question, “What can I do to help Julian Assange” the Wikileaks publisher whose health is failing and is currently imprisoned in Britain  facing extradition to the United States for exposing the truth to the American public about what their govt has been doing in their name. Finally, we feature a discussion with renowned scholar Martin Gilens who co-authored the book, Democracy in America?: What Has Gone Wrong and What We Can Do about It. We pose some tough questions to him about whether the US political system is capable of reform.
