WE ARE EVERYWHERE: the irresistible rise of global anti-capitalism.
We Are Everywhere was described by Canadian writer Naomi Klein as "...the first book to truly capture and embody the exuberant creativity and radical intellect of the protest movements."
Photojournalist Andrew Stern and author Jenifer Whitney are traveling throughout North America in order to present, not only the book, but also the results of their further research and investigation into the international protest movements and their ties to the growing anti-war movement.
Stern is just back from his 2nd trip to Iraq, where he was accompanying Naomi Klein on an investigative research project, and will present hard-hitting images from the streets of Baghdad to accompany Whitney's analysis.
Stern and Whitney draw these connections through a multi-media performance comprised of of several elements: a cutting edge video highlighting the diversity of various threads of resistance around the world, an exhibition of beautiful photos and illustrative quotations from their book, a lecture, and an open discussion with the audience.
We aARE Everywhere is the jumping off point. A mixture of critical analysis and art book, agit-prop, inspirational document and DIY manual, the book combines innovative graphic design and photographs with texts and interviews, creating a lively polyphonic insight into the movements against capitalism.
