The First Occupy Wall Street Film Festival. Occupy Movement filmmaker Travis Wilkerson phones in from LA to talk about the OWS Film Festival in NY this month, where his documentary An Injury To One, about the historic, valiant uprising of the Montana copper miners is screening. Also, what went down when 1300 cops raided their LA encampment, and current directions of Occupy LA.

And, the still unsolved, or rather uninvestigated, state sanctioned assassination of legendary labor leader Frank Little nearly a century ago.
