DAVID BARSAMIAN: RESISTANCE IN THE AGE OF TRUMP. Journalist, author, activist David Barsamian radically altered the Media Landscape when he invented Alternative Radio 32 years ago. Great thinkers like Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Angela Davis, Arundhati Roy, Vandana Shiva, Tariq Ali, Edward Said and many more have been widely broadcasted for the first time through the media work of Barsamian's radio programs.

Barsamian will be speaking about the broad coalition in opposition to the Trump Administration is growing: environmentalists, women’s groups, pro-diplomacy policy organizations, ecumenical and interfaith religious groups, immigrant rights organizations, civil rights organizations, LBGTQ communities, progressive Democrats, concerned Republicans.

He'll be reflecting on the core issues at stake today, and why are so many people from such a range of identities and perspectives challenging the administration.

Barsamian's latest book of interviews with Noam Chomsky is Power Systems: Conversations on Global Democratic Uprisings and the New Challenges to U.S. Empire. His best-selling books with Chomsky have been translated into many languages. He lectures on world affairs, imperialism, capitalism, propaganda, the media, the economic crisis and global rebellions.

He is winner of the Media Education Award, the ACLU's Upton Sinclair Award for independent journalism, and the Cultural Freedom Fellowship from the Lannan Foundation. The Institute for Alternative Journalism named him one of its Top Ten Media Heroes. He is the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Rocky Mountain Peace and Justice Center.

As Arundhati Roy wrote for The Guardian, 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."
