33:38 The global situation has always been scary at best, but now we have unprecedented access to information about what's happening. The big question now is, what are we going to do about it? Mike Prokosch, economonic analyst from United for a Fair Economy, says that it's easier for individuals to do effective global activism than you might think.

On 9-11, things turned ugly for people recently come to the US from other countries. Eunice Cho, co-editor of the "Global Activist Manual: Local Ways to Change the World," talks about the un-American way that American authority is being wielded against those deemed not sufficently American - like recent immigrants.
