Buddhist Activism: The first 2,500 Years, From Tibet to Thailand and Myanmar to Occupy Oakland

What does Buddhism have to do with the Occupy Wall Street Movement? Buddhism’s rich history of activism spans over 2,500 years and across the globe. It helped spark the Occupy Wall Street Movement. Learn how. From Tibet to Thailand to India to Occupy Oakland, the Buddhist tradition has helped instill inner and outer change. Who are the untouchables in India? How are the monk’s fighting deforestation in Thailand and the oppression of Tibet. Learn about Engaged Buddhism during the Vietnam War and at Occupy Oakland. Hear about the struggle for women’s equality during the era of the Buddha to today. Our panel: Prasadachita, David Nelson, and Ethan Davidson.
