William Rivers Pitt of Truthout: Freedom and change begin with a "No," with people in the streets, with a convergence of raised voices, with a decision to try and prove that what is does not always have to be. It has been done before. It must be done again.
As part of its commitment to providing independent information and resources to its readers, Truthout chooses a "Progressive Pick" every week: an independent book or DVD that we find thought-provoking and insightful. Each week, we provide articles, excerpts and interviews about the Progressive Pick, and also offer you a chance to receive the book or DVD with a donation to Truthout.
