Amy Goodman, host of the daily, independent global news hour Democracy Now! will speak and sign her latest book, The Silenced Majority: Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance, and Hope, Saturday, November 17 at 1pm.
Goodman joins the Los Angeles Green Festival as part of the 100-city Election 2012 Silenced Majority Tour. For the past two months, Goodman and the Democracy Now! news team have broadcast live from across the nation, going beyond the mainstream media’s obsessive focus on the latest poll numbers and candidate gaffes to examine how people are organizing; the impacts of restrictive voter ID laws that are making it harder to vote; and how the massive influx of campaign cash following the Citizens United decision is changing how our democracy works.
