On the December 31st, 2014 edition of Your Call, we'll have a conversation about how people power can make big companies change their ways.  Walgreens recently bowed to public pressure to remain in the US after considering moving overseas, and Oxfam successfully pushed General Mills to cut greenhouse gas emissions. What tactics work? How have the emergence of social media and the sheer size of multinationals changed what it takes to win? Join the conversation on Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

On today's Your Call, we’ll discuss digital activism and real-world change. Online organizing played an important role in Occupy Wall Street and the revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt. What do those movements tell us about digital activism and grassroots organizing?  Should people who are critical of corporate power think twice about organizing through Facebook and Twitter? And with revelations of government surveillance online, should activists change their tactics? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
