Naomi Klein: No Is Not Enough
May 15, 2017

In an exclusive London event, internationally acclaimed journalist, activist and bestselling author Naomi Klein, delivers a keynote talk on the surreal political upheavals of recent months and discusses the art of resistance in a time of Trump.

The author of landmark books including No LogoThe Shock Doctrine and This Changes Everything, Klein’s latest book, No Is Not Enough, turns her focus on the election of Trump and politics of shock.

Bringing her characteristic insight into the systems which govern the modern world, Klein sees Trump as less of an aberration ‘than a logical conclusion – a pastiche of pretty much all the worst and most dangerous trends of the past half century.’ To Klein, Trump’s election was not a peaceful transition, but a corporate takeover, one using deliberate shock tactics to generate wave after wave of crises, disorientate us and force through radical policies that will destroy people, the environment, the economy and national security.

In a rare public event, Naomi Klein offers a toolkit for surviving these strange times, and lights the way toward a world in which progress is not reversed.
