Chris Hedges Endorses Campaign to Televise Uprising!

Veteran foreign correspondent, Pulitzer prize winning best-selling author Chris Hedges endorsed our campaign to televise Uprising. Join our campaign at www.indiegogo.com/projects/uprisingtv

Hi, I’m Chris Hedges author, with Joe Sacca, of Days of Destruction Days of Revolt. I would like to add my voice to the calls of support for KPFK’s effort to televise its morning program Uprising. I’m a huge fan of Uprising. It is one of the few shows to give a voice to those of us outside the mainstream, those of us who decry the ineffectiveness of our traditional liberal elites, including the Democratic Party and who fear the onslaught, both politically and environmentally of a global corporate totalitarianism, one that now operates the most pervasive security and surveillance apparatus in human history. Free Speech TV will, if you assist us, televise Uprising. This will allow my voice and the voices of others like me to reach perhaps millions more viewers. Thank you very much.
