Chris Hedges Advises the Green Party to Break Bread with Activists to Gain Influence and Credibility
Description: “Chris Hedges, radical journalist at TruthDig, talks about a Strategy for Radical Change at Green Party of New Jersey Convention. Activism and providing support on the front lines.” Video date: April 17, 2013.
“The time for talking is over,” Hedges says. “They can either act, or atrophy into utter irrelevance.”
Also, “too many chiefs.”
Hedges’ message is that buying a food bus and showing up at Zuccotti Park with bagels and peanut butter would allow the party to listen to the concerns of the oppressed, rather than make moral, abstract pronouncements of corporate power, which we all know about at this point.
