Host Stuart Richardson interviews Bruce Gagnon, coordinator of the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space and publisher of a blog called Organizing Notes. We speak about why Bath Iron Works ship yard (a shipbuilding yard in Maine that builds US Naval destroyers) needs to be converted into a plant that builds Green technology, how US military spending is out of control globally and how that steals from the American people. We speak about the new Biden administration and how social change happens, how we cannot sit on our hands and hope things change for the better.
Activist and radio legend and my good friend Charles Boylan did this interview while in the late stages of his cancer, he will always be in my heart , he never stopped trying to make a better world

We spoke about the upcoming year 2017 which Charles coins the “The Year of Resistance”, we speak about the struggles and challenges ahead and the hard work that needs to be done to realize the new horizon where ordinary people get together and chart their own future taking back power from the monopoly interests, a bright future where the working class rises up with communities of interest to deal with the issues of our time, real action on the environmental, social and democratic crisis can be accomplished when we work together. A most importantly how to create an anti war government that respects human dignity with social love for our brothers and sisters.
