If you’ve participated in any mobilizations over the past decade, chances are you’ve seen the work of today’s guest, Oakland Institute Senior Fellow David Solnit.
A climate justice, global justice, anti-war, arts, and direct action organizer, David is also an author, a puppeteer, and a trainer. He was a key organizer in the shutdowns of the WTO in Seattle in 1999 and in San Francisco the day after Iraq was invaded in 2003. Today is he deeply involved in climate action protests.
In this episode, David reflects on decades spent on the front lines of some of the most important mobilizations and shares his thoughts on the role art can play in resistance movements.
