Nick Estes - Indigenous People’s Resistance
02 Dec, 2019 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

The wheels of justice turn slowly. How long before Jim Crow laws were overturned? How long for the U.S. Supreme Court to recognize gay marriage equality? How long the wait times in immigration courts? And even when someone, or some cause, has its proverbial day in court, the courts have an uneven record in dispensing justice. The legal field recognizes...

And he takes...

Michael Chertoff & David Gibbs – Debate on Humanitarian Intervention
30 Sep, 2019 | 0:57:00 |
EN | Shawna Sprowls |

Humanitarian intervention is always cloaked in altruism.
