Naomi Klein stands in solidarity with Vancouver Public Library workers. The author of “No Logo” told road stories from her latest book “The Shock Doctrine: the Rise of Disaster Capitalism, to a sold-out audience at John Oliver Secondary School. She gave several excellent examples of the infringement of the public’s democratic rights when those in and with power capitalise on war and other gloabal disasters. Naomi thanked library workers for help with her research and librarians were credited with their work in protecting in the commons. Great applause from the packed room! Obviously people of taste and erudition.
This CUPE 391 Vancouver Public Library worker thanked Naomi for her kinds words. I gave her one of our famous collector buttons and said I would be proud to share her words with the members on the picket line. Naomi said she will be on that line at 1.00 p.m. Friday, October 5, 2007, at Central Library. Thunderous applause from our well-read public. We love our members of the public and we love Naomi Klein.
