Creative Alternatives to Capitalism Conference

Friday, 23 May 2014 - 10:00am - Saturday, 24 May 2014 - 10:00pm

Much store is now put upon the idea that capitalism can recover its elan and exit the grumbling crisis that now besets it through the construction of a cognitive, creative and ethical capitalism that rests on the activities of so-called creative classes. We dispute this thesis and aim to show how an alternative to capitalism is not only possible but necessary if a better, more democratic and more socially just future is to be procured for all. To this end, we bring together creative thinkers and practitioners from around the world who are exploring alternatives outside the imprisoning box of conventional capitalist thinking. An anti-capitalist alternative is already in the making. Our aim is to mark and celebrate its creative possibilities.

Third Sunday Freeway Blogging

Sunday, 20 October 2013 - 12:00pm

This is a great way to get the word out to massive numbers - and to remind yourself and others that we are not alone. We meet on the Berkeley pedestrian overpass and display banners of peace, truth, justice, and accountability to all the traffic passing underneath. We have a few huge banners ("9/11 Truth for Peace", and "Expose the 9/11 Cover-Up" for example), so all you need to do is come out with your positive attitudes and mingle with fellow activists.

Listening for a Change - On the Eleventh of Every Month

Friday, 11 October 2013 - 11:00am - 1:00pm

From October 2001 through October 2007 every week, except when it was raining; I set up tables, banners, chairs, food, educational material, and created a space for public dialogue on key issues. In November 2007 (when my weekly radio shows began), I began doing this on a monthly basis, on the 11th of every month, in solidarity with other activists worldwide (See http://www.truthaction.org.)

We ask the public three questions and write down their responses-

What do you think/feel about the events of September 11th and the U.S. government's response?
How could we defuse terrorism?"
