  3. Britt Cocanour, Greenpeace public outreach director, discusses the continuing effort to pressure the Russian government to release the 30-member crew of Greenpeace ship, Arctic Sunrise, international protests campaigning for the crew’s release in 36 countries — and the environmental concerns in the Arctic region that was the reason behind the Greenpeace direct action against a Russian oil platform on September 20.
  4. Hendrik Voss, national organizer with the School of the Americas Watch, talks about his group’s upcoming November 16–18 protest convergence at Fort Benning, Georgia in the continuing campaign to close the Pentagon’s military training school for foreign soldiers, the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSEC), formerly known as the School of the Americas (SOA.)
