Extinction Rebellion on Mar 28, 2020
A live XRTV #alonetogether interview with Chris Hedges, American journalist and author.

He will talk about the massive changes which are now upon us – why this has been coming for a long time and how it relates to the climate crisis. He will speak on what the future will look like and our responsibility to shape it into a humane outcome rather than the default of fascism which we are heading towards at the moment.
