Hear ye, Hear ye!  After two weeks with some problems due to technical
issues and illness,  Free School University Radio (FSU-RADIO) had a very
successful show, last week, and we are back in business!

 

Rescheduled!  (Cancelled two weeks ago because of illness.)

Wed 2/22 7:00 pm on OB RADIO (http://obr.fm <http://obr.fm/> ) 

Main Street $marts - Who got us into this economic mess and how we get
through it?

with Grace Ross

 

Set your Internet Browser to OBR.FM.  Wednesday 7-8 pm.

 

Grace Ross is a lifetime activist in democratic people's movements and a
two-time candidate for Governor of Massachusetts.   She is presently the
coordinator of the Mass Alliance Against Predatory Lending, the statewide
coalition working to reverse the foreclosure-crisis in our Commonwealth.
She has written a book on the current economic crisis entitled "Main Street
$marts - Who got us into this economic mess and how we get through it?" The
book is a comprehensive survey of the damage done to the 99% by an economy
managed for the benefit of the few, and provides common sense prescriptions
for solving the problems, ranging from banking, foreclosures and
homelessness, to health care, to jobs - all the while empowering people and
building a more democratic society.  We will be discussing some of these
issues in a conversation that includes, "How did we get here?"  "What do we
do about it?" and "What is the role of the Occupy movement in solving these
problems?"
