This week on Act Out! we're bringing you a special 1-hour episode on the People's Climate March actions in Washington DC last week and weekend. Exclusive footage, images and interviews from the front lines of the fight for people and planet over profit, with perspectives you may not have considered and stories you haven't heard, from people and communities you haven't heard of. From North Dakota and the borderlands of Texas to Washington state, the Carolinas, California, Utah, and right here in DC – from the farmer in Pennsylvania to the water protector at Standing Rock, indigenous, undocumented, black, white, young, old, and all that lies between – this is people power fighting for climate justice.
One year ago, 17 people locked themselves on to a deportation charter flight at London Stansted Airport, grounding a plan that would have sent 59 people back to face reprisal – and possibly death – in Ghana and Nigeria. Now, those activists could face life imprisonment.
