How can we overthrow the rule of the 1% and build a better world? Join us to explore a basic people power analysis followed by discussion about how we can apply people power to confront Wall Street’s impacts on our lives and communities.
This forum will be facilitated by David Solnit, a longtime mass direct action organizer and puppeteer. He organizes with Occupy San Francisco Direct Action Work Group and Occupy Education. He was an organizer of the shutdown of the WTO in Seattle in ’99 and of the anti-war shutdown of San Francisco’s Financial District in 2003. He is the editor of Globalize Liberation; How to Uproot the System and Build a Better World.
