Chicago Independent Television
ON THE SHOW IN APRIL 2012:
* RE-OCCUPY: THE REPUBLIC STORY CONTINUES
In 2008, workers at Republic Windows and Doors occupied their plant for six days and won back a financial package that was promised to them. In 2012, workers once again occupied the same plant. We learn more in this segment from the Chicago TV show Labor Beat.
* RAHM THE GRINCH VS. OCCUPY CHICAGO
Chicago's mayor Rahm Emanuel has shown little love for Occupy Chicago or for working-class Chicagoans. In this segment, we see a film about the struggle between the Mayor and Occupy Chicago, inspired by a children's classic book.
* RAP NEWS: KHADNER ADNAN ENDS 66 DAY HUNGER STRIKE
We join with Chicago's Professor D, in a segment about a recent hunger strike over Palestinian rights.
