“We have to build that independent left. It has to be so strong and so radical and so militant and so powerful that it becomes irresistible.”
Who better to say such a thing than Naomi Klein, Nation columnist, author of The Shock Doctrine and No Logo and longtime progressive activist? Klein makes a special visit to the GRITtv studio to talk about the recent G20 meetings in her hometown of Toronto, Obama’s recent return to a kind of populism, her reporting on the BP disaster in the Gulf and what we can do to channel the growing rage in this country and in the world into a true progressive movement.
