As crony capitalists and corporate behemoths work to suck the last iota of profits and resources from a planet in crisis, they make intensified use of strategies like border walls, militarized policing, surveillance, incarceration, deportation, and the racism that garners support for them, to repress and re-channel dissent. But today we also see the rise of movements that challenge these repressive institutions and discourses, linking them with the exploitation they enable and with racial, gender, and class politics at home. Join us as we explore these obstacles, as well as, the movements and strategies that have been employed to challenge them

If the spirit so moves you, please credit my YouTube channel, Other Voices, Other Choices. You'll get some good karma, and I might pick up a subscriber or two.

And it's doubly good karma to notify me if you air this.
I made 4 versions of this plenary audio:

1. The mp3 you find here, in which the second half of the itty-bitty naughty word (00:11:34 bullshit) has been silenced.
2. An mp3 which includes the second half of the itty-bitty naughty word.
3. A .wav file otherwise identical to #1.
4. A .wav file otherwise identical to #2.

If you'd like to get a different version, contact me and I'll send you a download link. Please be specific as to which one(s) you want.

I added a broadcast advisory to this because Sekou Odinga at ~00:55:19 makes a statement (20 seconds) which can be construed to advocate violence.
