People Power: Sustainability and Activism

Listen to "People Power: Sustainability and Activism"

Lisa Di Piano is a member of Northampton MA's business Pedal People, a municipal trash collection effort powered by people on bicycles.

Francis Crow has been an activist for peace all her adult life. At 90, she talks about her life: US culture during the atomic bomb testing and after dropping the bomb on Japan, her early efforts to counsel Vietnam era troops about the draft, and how she brought Amy Goodman's show Democracy Now to Northampton MASS. (This involved pirate radio on a local hilltop and, eventually, raising funds that would normally have gone to a local radio station.)
