Ahmaud Arbery Murder Trial Begins

What A Day - October 18, 2021 - 19:41

The leadership of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees announced a tentative agreement for a new contract between the TV and film crew members it represents, and Hollywood producers. In the short term, this deal prevents a strike that would have begun today. In February 2020, Ahmaud Arbery, an unarmed Black man, was on a run in Brunswick, GA, when three white men chased him down in pickup trucks and fired a shotgun at him three times, killing him. The trial for the men accused of killing Arbery begins today, almost 19 months after he was killed.And in headlines: seventeen Christian Aid missionaries were taken hostage in Haiti, an FDA panel unanimously recommends J&J Covid booster shots, and Sen. Joe Manchin opposes Biden's clean energy program.Show Notes:IATSE: “Landmark tentative agreement reached for IATSE West Coast Film and Television Workers before Strike Deadline” – https://bit.ly/3pfTDfcVariety: “IATSE Deal Could Be Rejected by Members: ‘Our Leadership Let Us Down’” – https://bit.ly/3ALxNClDeadline: (2018) “Popular Vote Shows New IATSE Contract Is Not So Popular” – https://bit.ly/3aSDUu1For a transcript of this episode, please visit crooked.com/whataday
