Rise and Resist—Activism in the Age of Trump

Armenian-American radio host David Barsamian was deported from India due to his work on Kashmir and other revolts. He is still barred from traveling to the world’s largest democracy. One of America’s most tireless and wide-ranging investigative journalists, Barsamian has altered the independent media landscape with his weekly radio show Alternative Radio and his books with humanitarian figures such as Noam Chomsky, Eqbal Ahmad, Howard Zinn, Tariq Ali, Richard Wolff, Arundhati Roy, and Edward Said. Barsamian joins us at Town Hall for a discussion on world affairs, imperialism, capitalism, propaganda, the media, and global rebellions. Sit in for an award-winning journalistic perspective on our modern political landscape.
