What California Can Learn from Latin America

Saturday, January 28, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, with check-in and socializing at 9:30 am

A one-day People's Movement Assembly will advance solutions to California's challenges by exploring the successes that have occurred in Latin America.

The day will be moderated by Laura Wells of the East Bay Social Forum planning group. Presenters will include peace activist Cindy Sheehan; Andres Soto, KPFA and the Richmond Progressive Alliance; Martin Sanchez, former Consul General of Venezuela; Tanya Kersson, Food First; David Cobb, Move to Amend; Charlotte Casey, Friends of the Landless Workers Movement; Anka Karewicz, Occupy Oakland and East Bay Social Forum; and filmmaker Clif Ross.

Topics, such as cooperatives, food justice, participatory budgeting, constitutional assemblies, occupy foreclosures movement, and social and electoral movements working together for change, will be discussed in break-out groups.

No food will be available, so attendees must provide their own brown bag lunch.

This event is sponsored by the East Bay Social Forum 2012 and the Task Force on the Americas. A $5-20 donation is requested. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. For more information, please call 510/225-4005 or email info [at]
