Self-Governance - The Southern Movements Way

This week the "Laura Flanders Show" visits Whitakers, North Carolina, and the annual gathering of the Southern Movement Assemblies, a living experiment in popular democracy and local self-governance. 

A lot of the worst of the American experience has it roots in the U.S. south — plantation politics, monopoly capitalism, and incarceration instead of peace — but so does much of the best, from slave revolts, to abolition, to organized labor and civil rights. If the country goes as the South goes, what grassroots progressives do here matters.

For this special episode we partnered with Project South, an anchor organization of the Southern Movement Assemblies, and Laura was joined by co-host LaDie Mansfield.

The Trump administration claims its response to Hurricane Maria was a "tremendous," "unsung" success. Yet, what has been truly tremendous in the year since the hurricane is the will of Puerto Ricans building, organizing, and recovering on the island. Puerto Ricans have worked to find solutions that are long term and lead the island away from disaster capitalism, providing examples that will be important as climate crises continue to impact the country.
