Event Type Speaker
Organizer/AuthorBob Baldock
Chris Hedges speaks on "Overcoming Fascism." He speaks with fierce clarity about the most pressing issues facing us: the rise of the fascist right behind Donald Trump, xenophobia and violence pushing for American totalitarianism. He rails against …establishment elites on both sides of the aisle. He tears into the contemporary glamorization of the military and the unchecked hawkishness that defines contemporary American foreign policy. Moreover, he shows his support for contemporary revolts against this twisted order—such as Black Lives Matter—that represent Americans refusing to take the destruction of their country lying down. What are the mechanisms for resistance - given the absence of any authentic democratic institutions AND the rapid militarization of the state? Hosted by Greg Bridges of KPFA.
