truthout with video (02:58) from CURRENT:
Keith Olbermann talks with Jesse Hagopian, a Garfield High history teacher and Truthout author, about his arrested while protesting school budget cuts in Washington on Monday. They discuss today’s student walkout in Seattle and the viability of affecting legislation through coordinated occupation efforts. Hagopian, whose students started a Facebook campaign for him after his arrest, points to worldwide protests as influential groundwork for U.S. occupations: “To see students taking their own initiatives to fight for their own futures was really inspiring.”
