On June 28, 2012 Chris Hedges gave an historic talk to a sold-out audience at the Immanuel Presbyterian Church, in Los Angeles, California.  In this final installment, Chris talks about the struggles of the working class and poor of America who are losing unemployment benefits, their homes and food stamps.  He speaks about grassroots movements, his arrest in DC, the birth of Occupy, their demands and his successful law suit against President Obama’s unconstitutional NDAA law.

My personal thanks to Michael Sosebee for sharing this beautifully filmed footage with TRC. I applaud him for his integrity in gifting Chris’s important words and historic message to Occupy and its supporters.

On June 28, 2012 Chris Hedges gave an historic talk to a sold-out audience at the Immanuel Presbyterian Church, in Los Angeles, California.  In part one, Chris begins by discussing his father’s impact on his career and integrity, then on to speak about the populist movements and writing of early journalists, propaganda and how it has historically seduced the public into war in the US.  He explains how this led to the decline of the liberal class and the birth of consumerism.
