This week on Act Out! Cuba – the good, the bad, the ugly and the beautiful. Between my experiences there two weeks ago to new updates on US-Cuba relations, I'll introduce you to some people and facts you never knew; lifting the veil on a vilified island that has suffered greatly from U.S empire – and how education and interaction can cure us of this red scare disease.

L'eau est la vie – water is life. From the deep bayous and what's left of the Louisiana wetlands, we take a look at the indigenous led camp standing in the way of the Bayou Bridge Pipeline – the benignly named crude oil project threatening huge swaths of waterways and some of the state's last line of defense against climate change.

And finally – lady justice stands alone – silent by a shattered throne...
