Amy Goodman stopped off in Palo Alto on her 100-city tour leading up to the 2012 Election Day. Goodman discusses her latest book, The Silenced Majority: Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance, and Hope, at the First Presbyterian Church.
The event was a benefit for Democracy Now! and Peninsula Peace and Justice Center. Goodman was joined by Denis Moynihan, co-author of their new book. Denis has been a Democracy Now! team member since 2001 and co-writes Amy's weekly newspaper column.
Amy Goodman goes beyond the mainstream media’s obsessive focus on the latest poll numbers and candidate gaffes, to examine how people are organizing; the impacts of restrictive voter ID laws that are making it harder to vote; and how the massive influx of campaign cash following the Citizens United decision is changing how our democracy works.
