Immigrant groups hope to pull off one of the biggest protests in decades. Boycotts and rallies are scheduled in support of, and against, immigrant rights. Reporters and callers talk about what they're seeing around the country.

# Opinion Pages: Protests Could Lead to Backlash

In an article that appeared in Sunday's Arizona Republic, author Joel Kotkin argues that Monday's immigration protests will harm the cause of immigration supporters.

# Witness Intimidation

A father in Philadelphia tells his daughter in open court to testify that she saw nothing. "Stop Snitching" T-shirts appear in Baltimore courtrooms. Guests discuss witness intimidation and why there is profound distrust of the criminal justice system.

# 'Water'

Filmmaker Deepa Mehta talks about the threats of violence surrounding the making of his latest film, Water, the third in a triology that began with Fire and Earth.

I was just about to post that.

Yup, looks like either newsarama posted the wrong information, or NPR changed it.

Actually, I misspoke.

It wasn't newsarama.


IT WAS MARVEL. THE DATE/TIME INFO I QUOTED ABOVE WAS SENT TO COMIC STORES IN THE WEEKLY 'MARVEL MAILER' FROM MARVEL COMICS.

apparently, Marvel even has delays on their interviews.


:rofl:
