Video: Noam Chomsky on “Crisis and Hope: Theirs and Ours”

Noam Chomsky on “Crisis and Hope: Theirs and Ours”
3 July 2009
Chomsky-double-web, Democracy Now

“Noam Chomsky, the MIT professor, author and dissident intellectual, just turned eighty years old this past December. He has written over 100 books, but despite being called “the most important intellectual alive” by the New York Times, he is rarely heard in the corporate media. We spend the hour with Noam Chomsky. He spoke recently here in New York at an event sponsored by the Brecht Forum. More than 2,000 people packed into Riverside Church in Harlem to hear his address, titled “Crisis and Hope: Theirs and Ours.” In his talk, Chomsky discussed the global economic crisis, the environment, wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, resistance to American empire and much more.”

Exhibition: Climate For Change

Climate for Change @ FACT, Liverpool

“Climate change isn’t the only hot topic facing the planet. Environmental crisis, food crisis and housing crisis, all against the backdrop of an economic crisis that has been a long time coming. The 21st century has finally hit and there is an energy in the air – how do you respond? Forget the eco-art and bring on local, national and international debates, actions, contexts, struggles and solutions. With Stefan Szczelkun, Eyebeam’s Sustainability Research Group, Melanie Gilligan, Ghana Thinktank Project, N55, Anthony Iles of Mute Magazine, Glenn Davidson and, most importantly, a plethora of local activity and engagement.”
