This time Eric welcomes back to the show journalist and author Arun Gupta to discuss the No More Concentration Camps movement which he helped organize. Eric and Arun discuss the impetus behind the call to action and the immediate response both from social justice advocates and corporate and independent media. The conversation covers a lot of ground: the failures of the corporate press on this issue and throughout the Trump era, the role of tech companies in providing the tools and know-how for ICE and the deportation machine, the historical precedents of what we’re witnessing today, and so much more. Don’t look away! Don’t scroll past it! This issue cuts to the heart of what it means to have compassion and a commitment to social justice, and we’re glad to air it here on CounterPunch Radio.
