We celebrate the struggles and triumphs of the Battle of Puebla AKA Cinco deMayo, historically a festive celebration which now reclaims its force as a struggle against oppression. A conversation with UC Berkeley Professor David Montejano on the changing American landscape, plus live coverage of the Cinco de Mayo actions in Sacramento. And a Mothers day report from Colombia with Colombian filmmaker Marta Rodrigues on the often horrific working conditions behind those beautiful bouquets and of course the Knight Report.
