Occupy Wall Street Round Table

It started as a small group of dedicated protesters – Occupy Wall Street was dismissed as a fringe movement. But their message is starting to grab attention with similar protests planned around the country. Demonstrators say they are the 99 percent, but do the protests reflect the diversity of America? Are voices of color also being heard?
To answer this question, Maria Hinojosa hosts a round table debate with Colorlines.com editor Kai Wright, artist Melanie Cervantes, and musician Martin Perna.

Manu Chao in Arizona

It’s rare to find a popular musician these days who embraces a controversial political message, but that’s precisely what Manu Chao has done in his career. Originally from France, but his music transcends borders. Manu Chao’s songs speak of poverty and world politics, often in multiple languages – and his stardom has brought attention to many issues around the world.
Most recently, the singer was in Arizona, standing in solidarity with protesters against the infamous Maricopa County Sheriff, Joe Arpaio. Maria Hinojosa speaks with filmmaker Alex Rivera who was in Arizona with Manu Chao, documenting the protest and impromptu concert.
