Bay Area activist Karen Topakian has been arrested dozens of times for using nonviolent civil disobedience to protest nuclear proliferation, human rights abuses, environmental issues, and war. (Most recently, this January on a crane near the White House as part of a Greenpeace action to hang a 'RESIST' banner.) What drives her to repeatedly put her body on the line? In turn lighthearted and moving, Karen's story speaks to the need for Americans, now more than ever, to exercise this important First Amendment right.
DISCUSSION WITH: Dan Goldes and Karen Topakian
