A Big Day Coming Up
Only five more days until March 20th. Mark your calenders and what not. I'm looking forward to another good old global day of action; I was a little bit disappointed we all didn't do something on Februray 15th again. It would have been nice to see February 15th turn into a new leftist holiday like May Day or Labor Day. One can never have too many excuses for a shindig ... especially in the winter.
Also, as long as I'm on this subject I've been meaning to put up a plug for the Boston Social Forum in July, which I might be going to:
On July 23-25, 2004 at the University of Massachusetts at Boston—just before the Democratic National Convention—a coalition of Boston area, progressive community organizations, non-profits, and unions will be hosting what promises to be an exciting event—the Boston Social Forum (BSF).
A regional forum within the World Social Forum process, the BSF has been called to help progressive activists to begin to answer some very basic questions: What kind of future do we want for Boston? For our region? For our nation? For the world? What is our vision of a better society?
Through a series of workshops, cultural events, plenary sessions, and giant convocations of the entire forum, we are encouraging progressive organizations of all kinds to showcase their best analysis of the present, and their best ideas for the future, across the breadth of human knowledge—politics, economics, science and technology, culture and faith—in the context of corporate globalization.
