On the next Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll have a conversation about Hurricane Sandy media coverage. How are media connecting the dots between occurring natural disasters and global warming? We’ll be joined by Grist’s David Roberts and The Nation’s Mark Hertsgaard. Where did you see the best reporting this week? Join us live at 10 or send post your comment here. It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
There are ghosts and skeletons everywhere you look on Halloween. But for many cultures the more serious commemoration of the dead takes place the next day, November 1. It’s known as el Dia de los Muertos in Latin cultures – the Day of the Dead – when parades, elaborate skeleton costumes, and temporary altars are built to honor ancestors and those who have recently passed.
On today's Your Call, we’ll be honoring the passing of native activist, Russell Means, and marking the opening of SF’s annual American Indian Film Festival. An Oglala Sioux from the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, Means was a fearless leader of the American Indian Movement in the 60s and 70s, and led controversial actions including the occupation of Wounded Knee in 1973. How does his legacy affect native activism today? Join us at 10am Pacific or post a comment here. It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
