Amy Goodman will give a talk followed by a book signing at this year’s West Belfast Festival in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

The festival is called in Irish Gaelic “Féile an Phobail” (Festival of the People).

Her talk is entitled, “Democracy Now!: Covering the Movements Changing the World”

The unprecedented resistance to President Donald Trump did not materialize overnight. Grassroots movements have been challenging the establishment for years, and are what Democracy Now! reports on every day in its global news hour. From the standoff at Standing Rock to the voices of grassroots leaders; from Black Lives Matter activists to those fighting for peace, climate justice, migrant rights, and LGBTQ equality; from uncovering government surveillance to fighting attacks on freedom of the press, Democracy Now! has been reporting for over two decades from the front lines of the movements that are changing America and changing the world.

The event is free and unticketed - just show up, seats available on a first come basis
