Ape Goes to Amy Goodman at the Salt Spring Forum Apr. 30, 2011

Went over to beautiful Salt Spring Island to catch Amy at the the Forum. The organizer’s promo below: www.saltspringforum.ca.

On April 30, the Salt Spring Forum welcomes one of the world’s most courageous investigative journalists to Salt Spring Island. As the co-founder and host of DemocracyNow!, Amy Goodman’s broadcasts are carried on more than 900 television and radio stations across the United States and Canada. She was the first journalist to receive the Right Livelihood Award, widely known as the ‘Alternative Nobel Prize’ for “developing an innovative model of truly independent grassroots political journalism that brings to millions of people the alternative voices that are often excluded by the mainstream media.”

Her fearless investigative journalism has earned her many awards, and also many enemies. She was badly beaten by the Indonesian troops in East Timor, arrested at the Republican National Convention, and detained by officials at the Canadian Border. She speaks truth to power – and does so with inspiring eloquence, passion, and intelligence.

On Salt Spring she will be speaking on “The Importance of Independent Media in a Time of War”. Her talk will be followed by a moderated discussion and book-signing.
