Your Call's Media Roundtable: Juan Gonzalez on how social movements are changing urban politics

On this week’s media roundtable, we’ll speak with Juan Gonzalez, co-host of Democracy Now! about his new book Reclaiming Gotham: Bill de Blasio and the Movement to End America’s Tale of Two Cities.

He details the impacts of neo-liberal policies on urban spaces, and how two decades of grassroots activism has produced progressive leaders around the globe, including San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz.
