Tonight we will be hosting an FDL Membership Town Hall webinar with special guests Margaret Flowers and Kevin Zeese of October2011.org, who will be discussing the planned occupation of Freedom Plaza in Washington, DC starting on October 6, 2011. We would love for you to join us.
Activists from around the world are coming to DC to participate in this important demonstration starting on October 6th against corporate control over our government. It is being organized by October2011.org, we wanted to give our members a chance to hear from two of the amazing organizers of the event, Dr. Margaret Flowers and Kevin Zeese.
I consider Margaret and Kevin both good friends, and I’m delighted to offer our members the opportunity to talk with them what we can expect and how people can participate.
We’re also excited to announce that Kevin Gosztola, who has been covering Occupy Wall Street over at The Dissenter, will be joining us on the call. The Occupy Wall street protesters are coming to DC to join the October2011 event, and we will be flying Kevin to DC to cover the the demonstration for FDL as long as it lasts.
Kevin Zeese is an activist and founder of Voters For Peace. Margaret is a physician and a fellow with Physicians for a National Health Program. They will start off the webinar with a presentation on the plans for October2011, and we’ll follow it up with a discussion period where they’ll be joined by FDL’s Jon Walker and Kevin Gosztola. We will then open up the event for questions, comments, and plans from our attendees.
