UnKoch my campus, the future of private security, Alabama coal-miner strike

Lee Camp interviews the executive director of UnKoch My Campus Jasmine Banks. Banks takes us through the Koch agenda on college campuses across the country. The notorious oligarchs have used their billions of dollars to fund campus activists and academic departments with a view toward pushing free-market principles and undermining social welfare policies. UnKoch My Campus exposes the work of the industrialists. It has achieved some significant victories but still has a lot of work to do to kick Koch Industries out of academia in the US.

Naomi Karavani reports on a new app for keeping track of local crimes. The Citizen App used to be called Vigilante, so you can guess where this is going. The app is controversially being used as a testing ground for a private security force in LA. This could be where our oligarchs want US policing to head. Anders Lee opens a new segment, "Going Into Labor." Alabama coal miners with the United Mine Workers of America have been on strike for months now, after their contract negotiations with Warrior Met failed. The miners accepted severe cuts in compensation a few years ago to save the company from collapse. Now that the company has bounced back, management is refusing their demands.
