SFU Vancouver speakers series presents: Chris Hedges

Chris Hedges, SFU, 25/02/15

In Chris Hedges' vision, the forces that drive the current climate crisis, that drive the planet beyond its carrying capacity and fuel the unfolding extinction event, are the same forces that have invaded and ultimately invalidated our so-called democratic processes. This is a largely unchecked corporate power, driven by a logic of growth and profit-making, that arguably leaves the rest of us little option other than mass disobedience and a grass roots reclaiming of the power of the streets.

Chris Hedges will be speaking at the State of Extraction conference.
