In his newest book, Wages of Rebellion, Pulitzer-prize winning journalist, best-selling author and activist Chris Hedges, goes so far to argue that we are on the verge worldwide rebellion.
Join Hedges and professor of political science at the University of Winnipeg, Peter Ives for a conversation about it takes to wage rebellion from the historic revolutions of the past to the popular uprisings we are witness to today.
Steven Locke will provide a short performance before this event.
