On the 50th anniversary of the Free Speech Movement with its roots in the Mississippi Freedom Summer, we will discuss the need for the Hegelian-Marxian dialectic of freedom in real time engagment with on-going struggles. One special focus is the current free speech movement of California prisoners whose power of ideas, as part of their wide spread hunger strikes, is so scaring the prison establishment that they want to ban all communication "oppositional to authority."
