Stephane Hessel – Time for Outrage.

Stephane Hessel is interviewed on Democracy Now. The 94 year old born during the year of the Russian Revolution wrote a small book “Time for Outrage” last year which has sold 3.5 million copies. It is a cornerstone for protestors in Tahrir Square, Spain and now Wall St. His experiences as a French Resistance fighter, concentration camp survivor and co author of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights give his opinions some weight, and more importantly, validity, as the democracy which we are so proud of lies in tatters. This wonderful interview, and his thoughts are inspiring many people to take back what has been lost. as he warns that indifference is our worst enemy.
