Basement Revue: An interview with Naomi Klein

The renowned author discussed Indigenous issues and the inspiration behind her Basement Revue performance

Naomi Klein performed a powerful spoken word piece about Bella Laboucan-Mclean at the Basement Revue show in 2014. Laboucan-McLean was a young Cree woman who died after falling 30-storeys from a Toronto condo. Her death was tragic and mysterious, and given very little media attention at the time.

In the video above, Klein discusses the state of Indigenous issues in 2014 and the context around her Basement Revue performance.
