We are four hours in to our one day solidarity hunger strike with our friends from the 10th Ward who are fighting for a clean and healthy neighborhood.
Below is a link to our interview with Yesenia Chavez, one of the Hunger Strikers trying to Stop General Iron.
The first part, conducted by Pete Leki is directed to Waters School 8th graders who are learning about environmental justice.
The second half, conducted by Jules Peterson-Green, is directed to the Ward 47 Green Council.
Total running time is 48 minutes.
How can you help? Share and/or donate to this fundraiser going directly to the hunger strikers.
