Abby Martin calls attention to ongoing protests in Ukraine, highlighting the recent ban on dissent and reports that many citizens in the vicinity of the protests received a mysterious threatening text. BP employees are growing disgruntled with the company’s cutting of employee pensions, as well as holding back compensation for the victims of the Gulf oil spill. We mark the anniversary of the ‘Citizens United’ ruling, discussing the effect 4 years of corporate personhood have had on America’s political landscape. TV show host Kevin O’Leary called out for his callous celebration of the latest Oxfam statistics on the widening gap between the world’s rich and poor. Finally, legislative representative for the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Mike Dolan, talks about the growing public awareness of the dangers of turning the Trans Pacific Partnership into law, and the actions we can all take to ending the TPP once and for all.

To the guy who said that 85 people own as much as 3.5 billions of people is good because it is "motivating&quo t;, It can be answered that it is motivating for a life of grabbing, but not motivating for a decent life direction. It creates a socially destructive mentality where the only thing important is to gtab, grab... and where the best minds are not motivated for creative and really useful careers, but a career of grabbing on the financial market.

Tell your Camera Operator to clean the lens, It's been bugging me the past coupe shows. Also be aware of certain fabrics that the camera sensor can't pick up well. ;)
