Wells Fargo Protest, Sierra Club & the Green Party's Ben Manski
In this show, I cover the disruption of Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf's speech at the American Banker Retail Lending Conference by foreclosed homeowner Betty Badro, Occupy Fights Foreclosures, and the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa holds a press conference with former Vice President Al Gore for the Sierra Club's Beyond Coal campaign, and I ask him if the city will obtain its natural gas through fracking. Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune tells me his thoughts on "clean coal." Lastly, I talk to democracy advocate Ben Manski about his experience as campaign manager for Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein and the role of the party in spurring the paradigm change needed for substantive political change.
