On the October 28th edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss the forced removal of refugees from the camp in Calais, France. 

Thousands of people fleeing war and poverty were staying in Calais as they waited to across the English Channel into Britain. We’ll also discuss coverage of the longstanding peaceful protest against the Dakota Access pipeline. So far, more than 126 Native Americans and their non-Native allies have been arrested by a militarized police force. Join us live at 10am with me, Rose Aguilar and you.
