Amy Goodman encourages citizen empowerment as the best route for getting the candidates’ true stories.
In her conversation with us Amy focused on the necessity of pressuring politicians in order to hold them accountable to the needs of the citizens. She explained that “politicians change their positions when pressure is exerted upon them: that’s what politics is.”
How poignantly ironic then, that she was arrested while carrying out her duty as as a journalist and a citizen to hold politicians responsible to the needs of the people.
