In the second segment, Sean and Jacquie feature a commentary from political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal on the brutal legacies of empires and how the current US empire continues a ruthless drive for power and how empire has historically and currently distorts religion to advance its imperial agenda.
In the third segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Justin Yeary to discuss upcoming parliamentary elections in Eswatini, formerly known as Swaziland, and why movements are protesting those elections, how the parliament is a puppet body that cannot challenge the decisions of King Mswati III, and how the struggle for democracy and freedom in Eswatini is connected to other struggles around the world.
