Podcast: Karina Garcia. Immigrant Rights Forum

Tawnee Stair, Karina Garcia, Raul Rivera

ANSWER Coalition organizer Karina Garcia helped lead a large protest against Jim Gilchrist of the Minutemen at Columbia University on Oct 4, 2006. Days after, he stormed off the air on Democracy Now when she debated him. She speaks about that, and of how the virulent racism and hatred of Minutemen needs to be confronted and stopped whenever it occurs because, like their predecessor the Ku Klux Klan, they have support within the ruling class who uses them for their purposes.

Danny Shaw, also an ANSWER organizer, spoke first about Bush’s recent trip to Latin America where he was met with large protests wherever he went and also about the March 17 March on the Pentagon.
