Ed Yoo returns to the show to discuss how politicians pushed an “open the economy” narrative that had disastrous repercussions for public health, data transparency, and contribute to hundreds of deaths in our neighborhood.
Join us as we sit down with NY11 candidate Brittany Ramos DeBarros. We’ll explore the dangers of partisanship and how military contractors and war profiteering have left troops tokenized, demoralized, and without basic services. To counter these forces, we’ll explore how our district can engage with a Just Transition framework and invest in demilitarizing our civic systems. By removing our reliance on militarism and nationalism, we can build a leaner government that maximizes health and sustainability.
In this episode, we deeply examine all the reasons why we should finally tear down our remaining Confederate monuments in Bay Ridge. Join Dan and our guest John Hagan on a detailed analysis of our place within Reconstruction and Civil Rights history, and how Bay Ridge was the target of over fifty years of intentional propaganda.
