This is my first podcast. There are countless topics I could have used to kick off my show, but the People’s Organization for Progress daily protest was the obvious choice. POP is my connection to grassroots street activism and the ground truth of the impact of our socio economic system and government policy on working and poor people.
POP has been conducting a daily vigil for jobs, peace justice and equality. POP plans to at least match the 381 days of the December 5, 1955 to December 20, 1956 Montgomery bus boycott in tribute to their perseverance. Starting the process this past summer, POP has reached day 271. Having stood through heat, rain, wind and snow the next 100 days will be easy. I talked with POP Chairman Larry Hamm and Veterans For Peace Alan Reilly and Gene Glazer Chapter 21 President Ken Dalton who participated in a day of protest in solidarity.
