  •  Chris Hedges devotes a chapter to Pine Ridge (5+ / 0-)

    in his excellent book, Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt," which he co-authored with Joe Sacco, a cartoonist who does these wonderful long narrative graphic-novel vignettes.

    I saw Chris on tour for this book at SF's City Lights Bookstore, heard him speak, chatted a bit about seeing him speak last Oct at Occupy DC (Freedom Plaza), and got a signed copy. As things turned out with my reading schedule, I wound up reading this book while I was in Denver helping to GOTV the last 4 days. And my hosts were both part Native American!

    The book takes a look at the depths of the Class War in Pine Ridge, SD, Camden, NJ, Welch, WV, and Immokalee, FL, then wraps up with a Chapter on Liberty Square, NYC (Days of Revolt). Powerful.

    Based on that and your diary, MB, we'll be funding a delivery in Pine Ridge this season. Thanks for reminding me.

    The Class, Terror and Climate Wars are indivisible and the short-term outcome will affect the planet for centuries.
