Bev Harris of BlackBoxVoting on current elections problems
Guest host Marianne Barisonek interviews Bev Harris of the non-profit elections watchdog group BlackBoxVoting about the latest elections problems including the omission of valid voters from "who can vote" lists, particularly young and black voters.
Grace discusses with Mark and his family about the Thousand Kite Project, concerning communication and human rights. The issue is raised of the high cost of communication with the incarcerated, and how that basic right should not be a profit for business.
Grace also talks with Mark about his music (of which his song is the featured intro/outro music) and how it has been a positive force in his life.

There is so much going on with Occupy; the Bill of Rights being shattered, tents covering freedom fighters, and yet nature and the goddess call us to look inside.
This is the darkness before the dawn. What do we want the dawn to bring in? This is a time of deep visioning. Dreaming big to help us bring a freshness to the world we are co-creating, not simply doing the same things with a slightly new look. This is a time to delve into the liberating powers of dreaming, of visioning, of connecting to one another and the collective unconscious.
