Local Opposition to Bullet Train’s Path Surfaces

Hosted by

Out near Fresno, ground has finally been broken for California’s $68 billion high-speed rail project. Closer to LA, possible routes are getting serious consideration. The bullet train may be a long way off, but residents are already organizing to oppose community sacrifice just so it can travel faster from one place to another. That’s according to KCRW’s Saul Gonzalez.
