Kevin and Margaret discuss police suppression of peaceful protests in the US and the third party presidential debates. Like other nations, more austerity is coming to the United States. Kari Koch, organizer with the Portland Action Lab (http://www.portlandactionlab.org/) speaks about the "Enough is Enough" national anti-austerity marches. She describes how police pepper-sprayed peaceful students in the Portland, OR march. See http://www.solidarityagainstausterity.org/. Then Dr. Carminda MacLorin and Paul Bode, organizers from the Quebec Student Movement who are organizing the new global initiative, VIA22 (http://via22global.wix.com/via22), tell us about the lessons they learned during the Quebec movement, the changes that the mobilization brought about and next steps in the global movement against austerity.
