"Chris Hedges Talks With Michael Gecan About Building Organizations to Empower Ordinary Citizens:

When asked why he told poor Brooklyn communities in 1980 to raise a quarter of a million dollars without government aid, community organizer Michael Gecan responded, “Because power is organized people and organized money.”

In the latest episode of “On Contact,” the author of “Going Public: An Organizer’s Guide to Citizen Action” went on to tell Chris Hedges that “most activists stress organized people and forget organized money ... we stress both.” (http://www.truthdig.com/avbooth/item/chris_hedges_talks_with_michael_gecan_build_organizations_empower_20170109)
