Democracy Now hosts Subhanker Banerjee, renowned photographer, writer, and activist who has spent the past decade working to conserve the Arctic and raise awareness about human rights and climate change.
“Arctic Alaska has become the most contested land in recent U.S. history. But in addition to oil, natural gas and coal, the arctic is rich in biodiversity, and has been home to generations of indigenous people for thousands of years.” —Democracy Now
Banerjee is editor of the newly published book, Arctic Voices: Resistance at the Tipping Point (Seven Stories Press), and has just won the 2012 Lannan Foundation Cultural Freedom Award.
