Arundhati Roy: Two Talks on Democracy
With Noam Chomsky, Alice Walker, and David Barsomian, Amy Goodman
In the first program, filmed in San Francisco in March 2010, Arundhati Roy discusses the largest military occupation in the world: the disputed Kashmir Valley, a formerly sovereign state currently occupied by India and Pakistan. Journalist David Barsamian interviews Roy on the massive human rights abuses committed by the world's largest "democracy."
In the second program, at MIT, Amy Goodman, Noam Chomsky and Arundhati Roy discuss the economic crisis and the future of democracy. As corporations exert more and more influence over an increasingly less democratic state, what does the future of America, India, and other "democracies" begin to look like?
