This episode of the show; DNC protests, Chicago Teachers Union demos and Free Bradley Manning vigil continues. OWS Week stayed in Charlotte North Carolina to capture the last days of popular protests against the two-party system in America. The patriots and veterans converged on the Obama HQ in Washington DC in support of Bradley Manning and over in Chicago. Fannie Mae got it with highly controversial action: young folks burning registration cards and ripping up the constitution with the ultimate symbolism reminiscent of burning draft cards back in the days of the Vietnam War.
