On this week’s program we hear a recent speech by the legedary political activist and consumer-rights advocate Ralph Nader. Nader outlines some of the most critical problems facing Americans including exorbitant military spending, out-of-control corporations, deaths in the workplace, and lack of health care coverage. He then names some individuals who’ve made a difference in recent U.S. history, explains what students can accomplish on campus, and how voters can hold legislators accountable. Nader spoke on March 5th at Sonoma State University in Northern California as part of the campus’ annual Social Justice Week Lecture Series.
