Several activists who were early initiators behind the Occupy movement have formed a new political party, The After Party. Carl Gibson and Radio Raheem are among them and they join Dennis to discuss the launch and future plans.

In the second half of the show, comedian Lee Camp, who performed at several Occupy encampments, talks about his new weekly comedy show, Redacted Tonight, now airing on RT every Friday night at 8:30 and 11 pm EST.

About Reacted Tonight with Lee Camp | With reality now seeming like a Shakespearean comedy, perhaps only comedy can truly bring truth to the people. DC-born comedian Lee Camp and a talented cast do just that with RT America's first comedy show - Redacted Tonight with Lee Camp. This is not your grandparents' satire program. Every week Redacted Tonight will provide comedy news with a punch. This weekly satire show tackles all the real news stories the mainstream media failed to mention and provides new angles on the ones they do.

The After Party's platform is as follows:

RESPECT FOR HUMAN NEEDS.

We believe that government exists by the consent of the governed and is instituted locally by people to serve their collective needs. We will work to create a responsive government that recognizes the still-unpaid debts owed to the victims of slavery and poverty and we will implement a guaranteed basic income for all citizens.

IMMIGRANTS AND INDIGENOUS RIGHTS

We believe that we were all immigrants to this land at some point in history, or we were brought here in chains against our will. We all seek a place to prosper, and it is our duty to uphold the sanctity of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all who inhabit the land peaceably, no matter their country of origin or the length of their stay here. We will work to protect and expand immigrants rights.

SUSTAINABLE ENERGY AND DEVELOPMENT

We believe in a future where humanity can co-exist peaceably with each other as well as with the natural world. We will work for a future with renewable energy and an end to the destructive exploitation of the Earth, while also promoting equitable and sustainable development of our local communities.

EDUCATION FOR ALL

We believe in the fundamental right to a quality public education for all our children. In an increasingly-globalized world where advanced education is both essential and ever-more unaffordable, we will work to provide free and accessible higher education for every single student.

UNIVERSAL ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE

We believe that public health is not a commodity nor a product to be sold, but rather a fundamental human right. We will work to provide free and quality healthcare to all.
