Prof. Lawrence Lessig, Director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University, and founder of the Rootstrikers, talks about the New Hampshire Rebellion, and the first of three walks of 185 miles across the state, dedicated to raising wareness of the problems with the system of corruption that is killing American Democracy.
The walk, which will take place from January 11-24th will take marchers from Dixville Notch, where the first Primary of 2016 will take place, to Nashua, NH.
