If you live close enough to go, this a whole bunch of pretty admirable people all in one room (Faulkner, Barrett, PEPPER!, et al), with other good guys like Corbett contributing media to it. How often does that happen in real life? (Nice room, too.)
William Pepper is the main speaker, and he’s the lawyer who got an actual civil judgement in the case of MLK’s death asserting active government involvement in it (and demonstrating that J.E. Ray was not a lone gunman – or a gunman at all, if memory serves). Didn’t and doesn’t make the corporate news, of course, but a pretty big deal, and definitely something to share with others unaware of it, whether digitally or in conversation.
Speakers in Order of Appearance Our mistress of ceremonies, Bonnie Faulkner produces and hosts Guns and Butter, a one-hour public affairs program on KPFA and WBAI radio stations that investigates the relationships among capitalism, militarism and politics, reporting on who wins and who loses when the economic resources of civil society are diverted toward global corporatization, war and the furtherance of a national security state.
