Program Topic:
Key Discussion Points: Potential Impacts of Trump Administration on Climate, Energy and Tribal Right; Standing Rock Updates

1) Today we begin to look at the potential impacts of a Trump administration on a number of issues nationally and internationally and how social movements anticipate the work going forward.
2) We speak with the director of the Global Justice Ecology Project about potential policy impacts on climate change, oil and gas development and tribal rights.
3) We also look at the current assault on water protectors at Standing Rock. A solidarity rally will be held at noon on Tuesday at Westmarket Square in Bangor. At the end of the month a Wabanaki delegation will head to Standing Rock to set up members for the winter.
