Noam Chomsky in Portland 1995: Global Exploitation and the Grassroots Response

At Portland State University in October 1995, the noted analyst brings hard-to-find facts, a somber warning and a message of hope in a talk that touches on class warfare, health care, and history. Following his talk there were two Q&A sessions, one in the ballroom where the talk took place and one in the more intimate Multicultural Center.

This program was recorded by Dan Handelman, Judith Thandi and Mike Toschi, and produced/edited by Dan and Thandi. It was presented as a Speakers and Events show on Tualatin Valley Community Access in January 1996.
