On Wednesday December 12th 2007, Sharon Delgado read selections from her new book “Shaking the Gates of Hell: Faith led resistance to Corporate Globalization” at the Capitola Book Cafe. Delgado is a former organizer with the Resource Center for Nonviolence, a Reverend of Earth Justice Ministries, and a global justice activist. Sharon walked us through portions of her book, and some of the ideas and philosophies behind her resistance to Corporate Globalization. This file is an un-edited recording of the event. I left questions and comments from the audience in the MP3 cause some of them guide the conversation and help frame what Sharon is saying. The file is approximately 64 MB and an hour and ten minutes long.
