State of the State Roundtable -- The Struggle Against the Banks and the People's Agenda

Saturday - April 13 - 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
International Institute
111 E. Kirby (corner of Kirby and John R)
Detroit

The current political situation demands the end of “politics as usual.” All over the world, all over the country, and all over Michigan, people are rejecting the bankers’ demands for austerity.

In the 2012 elections we had the defeat of the emergency manager law, the re-election of President Obama, and small but progressive steps on other issues. In the streets we see an emerging and consistent struggle against foreclosures. In Detroit, the struggle of the school board in defense of public education is a valiant effort against the bankers and their EM mouthpiece. We have a Green, Elena Herrada, on the School Board.

Even as our struggle has grown strong, the crises and the attacks have grown even stronger. Our people and the planet are suffering more now than ever.

Join with other independent political activists from around the state and explore --

1.What is really happening in your neighborhood, city?

2.What can we do (or what can be done) to improve the lives of our people and our planet in Michigan?

3.What practical steps can we take together now?

Light refreshments will be served.
