APEC: Policies and Protests

INSIGHTS begins a three-part series of discussions about the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), which is convening in Honolulu November 8-13, 2011. This episode will center on those who oppose APEC policies.

In a discussion moderated by host Dan Boylan, panelists will delve into the issues behind APEC protests, including anti-globalization, poverty and environmental causes. The panel will also talk about the First Amendment and how steps are being taken to ensure that those involved in the protests understand their rights.

Scheduled guests include: Maxine Burkett, Associate Professor of Law at UH Manoa and Director of the Center for Island Climate Adaptation and Policy; Vanessa Chong, Executive Director of ACLU of Hawaii; Carolyn Hadfield representing World Can't Wait; and Arnie Saiki, Coordinator for Moana Nui.

This conversation was recorded on November 3, 2011 in the PBS Hawaii studio. Insights on PBS Hawaii is presented on Thursdays at 7:30.
