OWS Week 8/15 ~ Occupy Nukes/Hiroshima Day, Occupy Saks 5th Avenue, OWS Disability Caucus, Chalk Walk 2

This episode of the show tracked Chelsea Elliot down for a chat. She was one of the first two girls pepper sprayed back in September 2011 by NY police.

And the beat goes on: held on Hiroshima Day with Occupy Nukes a National Day of Action against the US nuclear weapons arsenal went down like a lead ball.

Occupy Saks 5th Avenue action focused against Mexican magnate, Carlos Slim, telecommunications "world's richest man", responsible for overcharging Mexico's rural poor. He owns the largest private stake in Saks 5th Ave. The OWS Disability Caucus protested outside of Mayor Bloomberg's mansion in NYPD during which 8 people, some in wheelchairs, were arrested. Then there's Chicago Teachers Union solidarity 
action and over to LA for Chalk Walk 2.

TRC features media analysis, social critiques and spiritual refreshments focused on the socio/cultural impacts of a post-9/11, post-carbon, ponzi scheme world teetering on the edge of mass awakening or mutually assured destruction.

In the spirit of mass awakening, the following types of comments will not be approved:

- Comments that criticize any class of people as a whole, especially when based on an attribute they don't have control over
- Comments that explicitly call for violence
- Comments with links to third party sites that are not relevant to the content of the conversation. No spam.
- Because we moderate comments does not mean we do not have a sense of humor. The Royal 'We', you know, the editorial...
- Just...you know...take it easy, man. We're all in this together.
