This week on Act Out!

Medicare turns 52 years old this year and as organizers gear up for their 52 events for Medicares 52nd, we take another look at why Medicare for All matters and how you can join the fight.

Next up, Cultures of Resistance director Iara Lee wasn't content to just document suffering – she wanted to help. In this special interview, she outlines her work as an activist, artist and filmmaker, how art is a catalyst for change and what she's learned on the front lines of hundreds of movements for change.

This week on Act Out!

6 months ago, people engaged in protests and blockades at Donald Trump's inauguration. Old news for some – perpetual nightmare for others. This coming week, solidarity actions are planned to bring attention to unlawful arrests, harassment and even sexual assault at the hands of the injustice system.

Next up, disabled activists rarely make the front page but their fight for our healthcare is a continuation of decades of work, and something we all need to take note of and lend our voices – and bodies to.

This week on Act Out!

The G20: the history of this meeting of bankers and finance ministers turned vapid soiree for the figure heads of state in a global capitalist empire. Plus the most recent G20 protests in Hamburg – hundreds of thousands taking to the streets to stand up to all that the G20 represents --- and how they were met.

And finally, the Mariner East 2 pipeline and the community of tree dwellers at Camp White Pine standing – and sitting in its path.
