Chris Hedges talks to author Amitav Ghosh about the natural world and sacred forces that sustain life and the conflict when treated by the human species as an inert commodity to exploit. In his novel Gun Island, Ghosh explores how these ecosystems have turned with a vengeance on the hubris and collective lunacy of modern industrialized society.

Chris Hedges: What happened to the labor movement?

RT America on Nov 22, 2019

Thousands of teachers are striking in Indiana, forcing the closure of schools across the state. “On Contact” host Chris Hedges joins Rick Sanchez to discuss the state of the US labor movement. He argues that unions have been the only vehicle for improving the lives of US workers and that striking is their most successful tactic. He also points out that unions have been “hollowed out” and rank-and-file union members need to be willing to defy ineffective or corrupt leadership.
