Asia Pacific Forum to feature the Book of Dissent tonight

Tune in tonight to the Asia Pacific Forum on WBAI 99.5 FM in New York City or online from 7–9 pm EST to hear clips of the speeches and songs in The Verso Book of Dissent, and to hear my co-editor Andy Hsiao and I discuss dissent, the book and some of the horrifying ways dissenters have been put to death!
