Media Roots Radio: Draconian Police State Overreach Against Left Activist, Starving Yemen, Criminalizing the Poor

Posted on by

Abby and Robbie Martin go over headlines in the first part of the show, including Biden’s increasing the already massive Pentagon budget, criminalization of the poor and the protesters going on hunger strike to call attention to the US-backed starvation of Yemen. At 45 minutes, they are joined by leftist activist Ryan Wentz to discuss the real story behind his visit by LA police for a tweet criticizing AOC, and the chilling effect this draconian police state overreach has.
