Naomi Klein to Speak at Occupy Wall Street Protest

At 6 p.m. tonight, The Shock Doctrine author Naomi Klein will speak at the Occupy Wall Street protest open forum.

Klein (pictured, via Ed Kashi) recently wrote about the protests: “This is not the time to be looking for ways to dismiss a nascent movement against the power of capital, but to do the opposite: to find ways to embrace it, support it and help it grow into its enormous potential. With so much at stake, cynicism is a luxury we simply cannot afford.”
