The newly-passed Volker Rule banning banks from engaging in the type of risky trading that led to the 2008 financial crisis, but in reality doesn’t give regulators the power to enforce the rule. Self-proclaimed animal abolitionist and Rutgers University Professor Gary Francione talks about the need rethink treatment of animals. Founder of StopPatriarchy.org Sansara Taylor discusses the mass closure of abortion clinics across the US and what women’s rights activists are doing to fight back. Finally, corporate media called out for focusing on Obama’s handshake with Raul Castro and ‘selfie’ photo with David Cameron, whilst ignoring the urgent issue of Immigration reform in the US.
