Writer, blogger, and constitutional lawyer Glenn Greenwald will be speaking at Occupy Boston on Saturday, October 29 at 4:00 PM. Greenwald is widely known through his blog on Salon.com, where he writes scathing, intelligent, and highly documented critiques of corrupt and hypocritical politicians and the media outlets that enable them, regardless of which political party they may be associated with. He has also written several highly acclaimed and popular books of political critique, including How Would a Patriot Act? and Great American Hypocrites. Greenwald’s new book, With Liberty and Justice for Some: How the Law Is Used to Destroy Equality and Protect the Powerful, speaks to many of the issues that inspired the birth of the Occupy Movement. Greenwald has particularly high credibility on this subject, due to his background as a constitutional lawyer and his willingness to criticize abuse of power no matter which part of the political spectrum it’s associated with. Check Greenwald’s book tour page for a full listing of his area appearances, and notification of any last-minute changes to his schedule.
