Radio Provocateur: Toward a Nonviolent Climate
First aired August 29th, 2011

Over the past two weeks Washington DC has been the sight of one of the largest acts of civil disobedience in recent memory. Thousands of activists have descended on the city, staging a huge sit-in in front of the White House to urge President Obama not to grant a “presidential permit” for a Canadian company, TransCanada, to begin construction of the Keystone XL, a 1,700 mile pipeline from the Canadian tar sands to refineries on the Gulf of Mexico. So far 522 activists have been arrested, and our guest on this episode is one of them.

Eric Stoner is a writer based in New York, and editor of the blog Waging Nonviolence. Join us for a report-back on the action, and a discussion about activism and nonviolence.
