ARUNDHATI ROY WITH NAOMI KLEIN: ON THE FATE OF THE EARTH
Join internationally-renowned author and activist Arundhati Roy for a rare US appearance, in conversation with journalist and activist Naomi Klein, in which she will discuss life on earth at the brink of environmental collapse.
Humanity is at a cross-roads, facing two possible futures. One sees ecological collapse and dispossession of billions people and wildlife, provoked by unchecked corporate greed. A more hopeful future has its roots in the millions joining a movement to save our planet.
After winning a global following for The God of Small Things, Roy has spent over two decades exposing crises of ecology, human rights, and democracy — and chronicling the noble resistance of ordinary people.
Thanks for this, Epaulo!
Ditto! Can't wait!
..marked it on my calendar and looking forward to it!
***bump*** tonight 7:30 pm
..i was stunned by roy's description of what is going on in india. it seemed like it was only yesterday i was listening to the tremendous battles going on by farmers and those affected by the dams. i still haven't fully recovered. but it was hopeful to see roy and klein move past the horror and have a normal conversation.
I downloaded the full 2-hour video and will watch later - was busy this evening.
