The Silenced Majority

Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance, and Hope

By Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan, Foreword by Michael Moore

Amy and Denis began collaborating on a weekly column for King Features in 2006. This timely new sequel to Goodman’s New York Times bestseller, Breaking the Sound Barrier, gives voice to the many ordinary people standing up to corporate and government power—and refusing to be silent.

The Silenced Majority pulls back the veil of corporate media reporting to dig deep into the politics of “climate apartheid,” the implications of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the movement to halt the execution of Troy Anthony Davis, and the globalization of dissent from Tahrir Square to Liberty Plaza. Throughout Amy and Denis show the work of ordinary people to change their media—and change the world.

Praise

"Amy Goodman has taken investigative journalism to new heights of exciting, informative, and probing analysis."—Noam Chomsky

"You can learn more of the truth about Washington and the world from one week of Amy Goodman’s Democracy Now! than from a month of Sunday morning talk shows. Make that a year of Sunday talk shows.

"Amy Goodman is not afraid to speak truth to power. She does it every day." — Susan Sarandon

"Pick up this book . . . and go raise some hell!" — Michael Moore on The Exception to the Rulers
