Ron Ridenour is a journalist-author-editor-activist for peace, equality and justice. Since the early 1960’s he has spent his life protesting injustices in the world – and continues to do so.
In this workshop, Ron will share his vast experience on activism and civil disobedience.
Born in the US Military Empire, Ron Ridenour rejected the American Dream in 1961, and has since acted as an anti-war, solidarity, and radical activist. He has lived in many countries and worked as a journalist-editor-author-translator for four decades, including for Cuba’s Editorial José Martí and Prensa Latina (1988-96).
His most recent of 11 books is, “The Russian Peace Threat: Pentagon on Alert” (June 2018, Punto Press, NY); six books about Cuba (“Backfire: The CIA’s Biggest Burn” and “Cuba at Sea”), plus “Yankee Sandinistas”, “Sounds of Venezuela”, and “Tamil Nation in Sri Lanka”.
