"The Laura Flanders Show" (27 minutes)

This show comes from Whitakers, North Carolina and the annual gathering of the Southern Movement Assemblies  -- a living experiment in popular democracy and local self governance. Plantation politics, monopoly capitalism, incarceration instead of peace: a lot of the worst of the American experience has it roots in the US South, but so does much of the best, from slave revolts, to abolition, to organized labor and civil rights. If the country goes as the South goes, what grassroots progressives do here matters.
