In this week’s episode of “On Contact,” host Chris Hedges sits down with activist and attorney Kevin Zeese. The two explore recent resistance efforts against the Trump administration and discuss how to form successful protests.

Zeese, who helped organize the Occupy movement in 2011, is currently the co-director of the organization Popular Resistance. He also recently served as an adviser to Green Party congressional candidate Margaret Flowers.
