‘Obey’ is a film based on Chris Hedges’ (2010) book, Death of the Liberal Class.
Obey discusses the current political, social, economic and environmental crises the world now faces and suggests the need for rebellion to fight against these crises.
There will be a discussion afterwards about the implications of this film in general and for activists in Birmingham.
