Stop Fascism: Chris Hedges Speaks in Portland
Stop Fascism: Chris Hedges Speaks in Portland
A benefit for KBOO Community Radio. Chris Hedges examines the mechanisms for resistance given the absence of any authentic democratic institutions and the rapid militarization of the state.

Are you outraged yet? Since the November general election, human rights have been under attack and our communities of color are the first targets. Corporations have further infiltrated government to divert federal dollars into the pockets of a few. Paramilitary forces like ICE, radical right pundits, and hate groups have reinforced systems of division and control.

The US has a long history of white supremacy and disparity — and recently, more people have been uprooted from our imaginary past of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all Americans.

KBOO Community Radio is proud to host Chris Hedges in a provocative look at the current state of revolt in the United States. Hedges will recount the US’s continuing history of domestic terrorism while outlining ways for communities to resist before it’s too late.

Chris Hedges is a Pulitzer prize-winning journalist, Princeton University professor, author, and activist, as well as a columnist for the news and commentary website Truthdig. He also hosts a weekly interview show called ‘On Contact,’ which airs “dissident voices” currently missing from the mainstream media. He has written 11 books, including “Wages of Rebellion: The Moral Imperative of Revolt,” (2015) and the New York Times bestseller “Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt” (2012), which he co-authored with Portland-based comics journalist Joe Sacco.
