For episode 22 I'm joined by Philly-based activist, writer, and documentary filmmaker, Dustin Slaughter. Dustin has had his hands in quite a bit over the past few years, and I only discovered him last month thanks to the #StatenIsland hashtag on twitter.
After seeing Dustin's posts on twitter, I followed him, checked out his work, and like most people I've come across, turns out we have way more in common than not. He was involved with Occupy Philly, went to the 2012 NATO protest, is an Anonymous supporter, covered alot of the devastation from hurricane Sandy, he recently attended Bradley Manning's trial, and he fights the good fight in his own way, which always gets my respect. Bottom line, I think the guy is awesome and want you to know who he is.
Dustin founded The David and Goliath Project which "celebrates protest culture in all of its forms, from video reports and documentaries to writing, art and music. The Project considers the voices of filmmakers, youth, journalists and activists to be of the utmost importance, as the disenfranchised, the working class and the environment become secondary to the goals of an increasingly corporatized, securitized America. And as Tunisia, Egypt, Wisconsin and the rest of world is starting to prove, radical voices are absolutely necessary to push back against government corruption and corporate encroachment of the American ideal: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness."
