Host of Green Power and Wellness
Mondays at 3pm (ET)/ Noon (PT)
Harvey Wasserman brings to the air his half-century of joyous activism on issues ranging from peace, civil rights and human liberties to No Nukes, election protection, people’s history, ending the drug war and much more.
Harvey has served as senior advisor to Greenpeace USA, for whom he spoke to 350,000 semi-conscious rock fans at Woodstock 2 (1994). He helped organize the 1979 No Nukes concerts in Madison Square Garden, and in 2011 spoke at the MUSE2 concert in Silicon Valley. He edits the www.nukefree.org website.
A co-founder of the global grassroots green power movement, Harvey began demonstrating for civil rights in 1962, at age 15. He marched with Dr. Martin Luther King in Mississippi in 1966, and worked for peace in Vietnam, co-founding the legendary Liberation News Service in 1967. In 1968 he helped found Montague Farm, a pioneer in the organic gardening movement. With Bob Fitrakis he helped expose the theft of the 2004 presidential election in Ohio, about which they have written four books.
As senior editor of www.freepress.org, Harvey’s articles circulate widely throughout the internet. He has appeared on the Today Show, Nightwatch, NightLine, Charie Rose, Lou Dobbs, Phil Donahue, National Public Radio and numerous other major media. HARVEY WASSERMAN’S HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES (1972) was introduced by Howard Zinn. His SOLARTOPIA! OUR GREEN-POWERED EARTH, introduced by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., presents the vision of an ecologically sustainable, socially just, democratically-controlled planet which is at the core of all he does. It comes with a theme song by Pete Seeger.
Harvey’s next book is on non-toxic means of managing cancer and sustaining human health. He warmly invites you to join the conversation with him on PRN!
