Have any of you heard or read Arundhati Roy's "Come September" speech?
It was given in Sante Fe, NM on September 18th, 2002.
She gives her perspective on the historical context of the conflicts in the Middle East, globalization, the "War on Terror", and so on.
As the video description says:
What do you guys think?Roy speaks poetically to power on the US' War on Terror, globalization, the misuses of nationalism, and the growing chasm between the rich and poor. With lyricism and passion, Roy combines her literary talents and encyclopedic knowledge to expose injustice and provide hope for a future world.
