Time: Event will be live-streamed on this page from 7:45pm – 9:45pm EST
Description: “We believe that intensifying peaceful civil disobedience is not only ethically justifiable but morally necessary” – Kumi Naidoo.
Dr. Naidoo will look at when and why direct action should be deployed as well as what justifies nonviolent direct action. Dr. Naidoo will draw on recent campaigns such as last year’s protest at an Arctic oil drilling rig, which saw activists arrested by Russian authorities and held for 100 days, as well as the anti-apartheid struggle he was part of in his home country, South Africa.
Hailing from South Africa, Kumi Naidoo has been the International Executive Director of Greenpeace since November 2009.
