Last week we presented PART 1 and now we bring you PART TWO of a Democracy North audio presentation of a talk moderated by Democracy North’s Host Irwin Oostindie.  Featuring: David Barsamian, Dionne Bunsha, annie ross, & Lindsay Brown. Organized by South Asian Network for Secularism (SANSAD) and co-sponsored by SFU’s Institute for the Humanities and the Hari Sharma Foundation. Thanks to Coop Radio’s Red Eye for recording the event.

Global Discontents is a compelling new set of interviews with Noam Chomsky, who identifies the “dry kindling” of discontent around the world that could soon catch fire. In wide-ranging interviews with David Barsamian, his longtime interlocutor, Noam Chomsky asks us to consider “the world we are leaving to our grandchildren”: one imperiled by the escalation of climate change and the growing threat of nuclear war. If the current system is incapable of dealing with these crises, he argues, it’s up to us to radically change it. These ten interviews examine the latest developments around the globe: the devastation of Syria, the reach of state surveillance, growing anger over economic inequality, the place of religion in American political culture, and the bitterly contested 2016 U.S. presidential election. In accompanying personal reflections, Chomsky describes his own intellectual journey and the development of his uncompromising stance as America’s premier dissident intellectual.


The Tiny House Warriors fundraising compilation: Our Land is Home is a part of a mission to stop the Kinder Morgan TransMountain pipeline from crossing unceded Secwepemc Territory. Ten tiny houses will be built and placed strategically along the 518 km TransMountain pipeline route to assert Secwepemc Law. 40+ artists have contributed to this first album.  PURCHASE IT AT
