Last Thursday in San Francisco, undocumented immigrants and their supporters sat down in front of a deportation bus.  It was part of an action to shut down Immigrations and Customs Enforcement.  They managed to delay the bus for several hours, and 26 people were arrested.  Apex Contributor Marie Choi talks with May Liang, an organizer with Asian Students Promoting Immigrant Rights Through Education (ASPIRE).

WBAI’s Asia Pacific Forum covered the exciting and historic community-led victories against Stop & Frisk and other racial profiling and oppressive practices by the New York PD.

You’ll hear the voices of Andrea Ritchie of Streetwise & Safe, Jennifer Ching of Queens Legal Services and Lynly Egyes of the Sex Workers Project of the Urban Justice Center – all based in New York.   Apex Contributor Ellen Choy brought the story to Apex.  It was produced by Asia Pacific Forum’s Michelle Chen.

Finally, should residents be able to call the shots about how their tax dollars are spent?  In Oakland, the Community Democracy Project is collecting signatures for a ballot measure that would do just that.  Modeled on the democratic budgeting practices of Puerto Allegre, Brazil and Medellin, Colombia.

We talk with Jiwon Chung and Alexa Chua to learn more about how democratic budgeting would work.

Karl Jagbandhansingh hosts.
