Naomi Klein: How We Can Build a Movement So Radical, So Militant, So Powerful That It Becomes Irresistible

"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 rabblerouser?

Naomi makes a special visit to the GRITtv studio to talk about the recent G20 meetings in her hometown of Toronto, about Obama's recent return to a kind of populism, the looming midterm elections in the U.S., 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.
