Today on Flashpoints, we continue our focus on the expanding violence of the militarized US-Mexico border; we’ll also speak with Rene Salcedo about the growing movement for migrant worker rights in the US; then, we’ll turn our focus to Bay Area activists who are planning to prevent a ship from apartheid Israel to be unloaded at the Port of Oakland; also, on Flashpoints en espanol we’ll focus on the situation in Arizona and migrant worker rights.
