    Washington, DC

     

    Ralph Nader will be launching his new book of columns, Told You So, at Politics & Prose Bookstore on Thursday, May 30th.

    The column is the most natural literary form for a citizen’s advocate, and Ralph Nader may be its most robust and forceful practitioner. Told You So: The Big Book of Weekly Columns presents a panoramic portrait of the problems confronting our society and provides examples of the many actions an organized citizenry could and should take to create a more just and environmentally sustainable world. Drawing on decades of experience, Nader’s columns document the consequences of concentrated corporate power; threats to our food, water and air; the corrosive effect of commercialism on our children; the dismantling of worker rights; and the attacks on our civil rights and civil liberties.

  • Sarah Erdreich Talks “Generation Roe” on Book TV

    March 21, 2013

    SarahErdreichphotoEarlier this month, Sarah Erdreich–author of the upcoming Generation Roe (on sale March 26th, 2013)–appeared at the Politics & Prose Bookstore in Washington, D.C., to discuss the future of the pro-choice movement and what the next step will be for abortion rights in America. The event was broadcast on C-SPAN’s Book TV, and you can now view the entire hour-long program on Book TV’s Web site.

    Erdreich has been identified as a leading pro-choice activist by Newsweek, and her incisive writings on abortion rights have been noted by Jezebel, Feministing,  and the National Partnership for Women and Families. Now, in Generation Roe, Erdreich tells the true stories of those whose lives are most changed by this issue, and outlines the outrageous legal battlegrounds that have popped up across the country, all with frankness and candor. Gloria Steinem says Erdreich “replaces lies with honesty and myth with reality” in this, her first book.

    September 26, 2011

    Like our brothers and sisters in Egypt, Greece, Spain, and Iceland, we plan to use the revolutionary Arab Spring tactic of mass occupation to restore democracy in America. We also encourage the use of nonviolence to achieve our ends and maximize the safety of all participants. Occupy Wall Street is leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions. The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%.
