On this episode of "By Any Means Necessary" hosts Eugene Puryear and Sean Blackmon are joined by Marcel Cartier, Sputnik News Political Analyst to talk about the early Friday morning bombing on a London subway train, what yet another attack will mean for UK politics, and if the attack will strengthen the calls for a strong 'Brexit' with tighter border controls. The group also talks about how public sector financial cuts are making citizens unsafe in the UK, the changing politics in Germany following the influx of refugees over the past several years, and what is driving the most recent uptick of right wing politics in Western Europe.

Kari Fulton calls for donations and support for the Climate Justice Alliance, WE ACT for Environmental Justice — EJ Leadership Forum on Climate Change, and Indigenous Environmental Network.
