Yes to the People’s Movement: Naomi Klein
The lines between politics and branding have been blurred, not just in recent years, but in a gradual effort by corporations to commodify media and politics. So says our guest this week, Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine and This Changes Everything, joining Laura to discuss her most recent book No Is Not Enough. How will the movements of resistance and creation challenge a “reality tv politics?,” and where is it already happening? Klein sets out the map. Plus, a short report on water protector Red Fawn Fallis, who faces an imprisonment for life sentence as a result of her participation in the Standing Rock protests of 2016. And an F-word from Laura on the manifestos, Labour and Leap — how their forward-looking ideas can guide us to alternative models of energy, economy, and equity.
