BP Oil Slick Disaster

BP Oil Slick Disaster

The massive BP oil disaster is moving quickly into the Florida Keys, we’ll speak to a shrimp fisherwoman and an indigenous activist whose ecosystems were destroyed in Alaska during the Exxon Valdez spill; also, we’ll have a report-back from Arizona, on the enormous protests that took place over the weekend in opposition of the anti-immigrant laws, as Sheriff Joe Arpaio considers a run for the governor of that state; and we’ll have a special report on a successful lawsuit brought by radical education activist Bill Ayers against the University of Wyoming for an attempt to ban him from speaking on campus.
