Democracy Now! - Féile an Phobail 2017
Join Amy Goodman from Democracy Now! at St Mary's University College as she reflects on grassroots resistances to institutions in America.
The unprecedented resistance to President Donald Trump’s rise to power did not materialize overnight. Grassroots movements have been challenging the establishment for years, and are what Democracy Now! reports on every day in its global news hour. From the standoff at Standing Rock to the voices of grassroots leaders; from Black Lives Matter activists to those fighting for climate justice, migrant rights, peace and LGBTQ equality; from uncovering government surveillance to fighting attacks on freedom of the press, Democracy Now! has been reporting for two decades from the front lines of the movements that are changing America and changing the world. It is a modern day underground railroad of information.
This free event is part of Féile an Phobail 2017.
