  1. Richard Heinberg, is Senior Fellow-in-Residence and Board Secretary of the Post Carbon Institute and author of 11 books including, Snake Oil: How Fracking’s False Promise of Plenty Imperils Our Future. He’ll discuss the work his group is doing on climate change and energy issues, with a focus on the recent report that found a major section of west Antarctica’s ice sheet will completely melt in coming centuries and likely raise sea levels higher than previously predicted.
  2. Deepa Kumar, Associate Professor of Journalism and Media Studies at Rutgers University, talks about the successful campaign that forced former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to withdraw from the commencement speech she was invited to give at Rutgers University. She’ll also examine the “backlash” we now see in much of the media, where critics are declaring that progressive activist students and faculty who protested the invitation to Rice to give the commencement address, have “no respect for free speech” – and “little tolerance for opposing views.”
  3. Seth Adler, is a founder of the national Jobs With Peace Campaign and a long time peace and justice activist, who now serves as the conference coordinator with the annual Left Forum in New York City. He’ll discuss the hundreds of panels, keynote speeches and special events at this year’s conference, May 30 – June 1, 2014, where the theme is, “Reform and/or Revolution: Imagining a World with Transformative Justice.”
  4. Erika Eichelberger, staff reporter with Mother Jones magazine, talks about the U.S. and international one day strike of fast food workers that occurred on May 15, covered in her recent article, “Fast-Food Strikes Go Global.” She’ll discuss the domestic and international movement advocating for unionization, increased wages and dignity in the workplace.
