Occupy Forum in the Park begins Monday September 10th
6:00 pm to 9:00 at Bradley Manning Plaza with Jerry Mander!
We are continuing the Monday night Occupy Forum tradition! Occupy Forum in the Park will make its debut Monday September 10th at Bradley Manning Plaza -- Occupy's old camp -- opposite the Ferry Building at the bottom of Market Street.
Political discourse in the commons!
Information, education, discussion & community!!
Topic: Is capitalism obsolete?
Jerry Mander, a writer and activist for over thirty years, author of "The Capitalism Papers: Fatal Flaws of an Obsolete System", "Alternatives to Economic Globalization: A Better World is Possible" and "In the Absence of the Sacred: The Case Against the Global Economy" will speak and help lead the discussion on September 10th.
We will discuss whether the breakdown of the current system is inevitable, how permanent war and the destruction of democracy are intertwined within corporate capitalism, and what the economic alternatives are that respect the carrying capacities of the planet.
Location: Bradley Manning Plaza (formerly Justin Herman Plaza), conveniently located near the Embarcadero BART Station and the Ferry Building.
We will have seating, blankets to keep you warm, amplified sound, and peacekeepers to keep it alcohol, interruption, and smoke-free.
