Winds of Change – March 1st 2012 – Rodney Graham and Paul Boden

Train hopping is a tradition as old as the rails, inspired by poverty and the quest for adventure and job-seeking.  Rodney Graham, founder of Winnipeg’s Street Sheet, shares his concerns for the homeless youth of today along with stories from his soon to be released book – The Wanderers.  South of the border, Paul Boden and the Western Regional Advocacy Project are working towards a National Day of Action for April 1st.  As increased poverty and homelessness manifest in the capitalist world,  so is the police response.  It’s not illegal to be homeless, yet impoverished people are treated with more and more contempt and disrespect by various authorities.  Paul shares stories from his personal experiences with homelessness, from his many years of advocacy working for social justice, and some disturbing statistics about policing across the USA.
