South Carolina’s Confederate flag consecration & The hidden refugee catastrophe (E051)
In this episode of Watching the Hawks, Tyrel Ventura, Tabetha Wallace and Sean Stone discuss a new Amnesty International report indicating that all 50 states fail to meet international standards when it comes to use of force by law enforcement. RT’s Lizzie Phelan talks about another Amnesty report finding that the global refugee crisis has reached its highest level in over a decade. Tyrel, Tabetha and Sean are then joined by Dr Wilmer Leon, host of ‘Inside the Issues’ on Sirius XM and Kirsten West Savali, senior writer at the Root, to discuss the historical context of the Confederate flag in the wake of the massacre at a Charleston, SC church. WTH wraps up the show by taking a look at a unity march by an estimated 20,000 people across a bridge in Charleston.
