Members of the panel are:

Bob Funke - Bob is a member Veterans for Peace, a veteran of the Vietnam War, and an active member of Occupy Boston.

Christine O'Connell - Christine has been working with outreach since early on through journalism for openmediaboston.org. She is 26 years old and currently unemployed due to a job related injury. She is an organizer for the Majority Agenda Project.

Bryan MacCormack - Bryan is a student activist who has been successful in Northeastern University's living wage campaign, the campaign against Sodexo (human rights violators in their food service practices), has been involved with the Mexico Solidarity Network, is currently involved with Occupy Boston and was arrested last Monday night.

The panel will be followed by a Q&A session. Come out to show your support and learn more about Occupy Boston.
