This Wednesday, January 17, at 9 a.m. we’ll have as guests Diane Desenberg of Manasota Move to Amend and Jenni Casale of Action Together Suncoast talking about the upcoming Saturday, January 20 March for Democracy. Meet at noon at Unconditional Surrender statue on Sarasota’s bayfront near Marina Jack.
In the second half of our program we’ll talk to Joe Newman, leader of the Nation Group of Sarasota, who just turned 105. Joe will talk about his history as a socialist and activist and the things he learned from his parents (who were exiled by the Russian czar to Siberia). An article about Joe appeared recently in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.
