On this week’s program we discuss the controversial practice known as “fracking” – a method of natural gas drilling that produces toxic wastewater and how communities are responding, an interview with CELDF Project Director Ben Price who is working with Pennsylvania communities to assert their local self-governing authority and challenge the corporate state, and the new immigration law in Arizona and the lawsuits that have now been filed against it.

Each week we bring you stories from the frontlines as communities bring rights-based organizing to their communities – asserting their local self-governing authority to make the critical decisions that affect their lives and their community.
