This edition of the Project Censored Show we feature two of the country’s best-known peace advocates, each with a new book out. First, Medea Benjamin discusses the Russia-Ukraine conflict, emphasizing aspects that US corporate media are not covering. Then we hear a rebroadcast of a September interview with author Chris Hedges, where he related some of the stories told in his new book, “The Greatest Evil Is War.”
Medea Benjamin co-founded both the women’s peace organization Code Pink and the fair-trade group Global Exchange. Her recent books, include “Inside Iran” and “Kingdom of the Unjust.” Her latest book is “War in Ukraine,” co-authored with Nicholas Davies, and published by OR Books. Chris Hedges is a former New York Times foreign correspondent and a prolific author. His latest book, “The Greatest Evil Is War,” is based on interviews with dozens of victims of war, including wounded veterans, families of soldiers, and civilian survivors of battle.
