Left Forum panels next weekend: #OWS Alt Banking meeting and a debate with Doug Henwood
Next weekend at Pace University in New York City I’ll be taking part in two panels at the Left Forum, a yearly conference of progressives that everybody who’s anybody seems to know about, although this will be my first year there. For example Noam Chomsky is coming this year.
First, from noon til 1:40 on Saturday June 8th, I’ll be debating how to shrink the financial sector with Doug Henwood, author of Wall Street: how it works and for whom. The panel will be moderated by my buddy Suresh Naidu, an occupier profiled in the Huffington Post. The announcement for this panel is here and includes room information.
Second, from 3:40 til 5:20, also on Saturday June 8th, I’ll be facilitating a meeting of the Alternative Banking group of OWS, which will be loads of fun. The idea is to explain to the panel audience how we roll in Alt Banking, to have a discussion about breaking up the banks, and to get the audience to participate as well. We expect them to enjoy getting on stack. The announcement for this panel is here, please come!
Registration for the Left Forum is still open and is affordable. Go here to register, and see you next weekend!
