JULY 8 ’07 – U.S. Social Forum Review

The First Ever United States Social Forum took place from June 27 to July 1 in Atlanta, GA. The event, billed as “more than a conference, more than a networking bonanza, more than a reaction to war and repression” was seen as a major step towards building a progressive movement for justice in the United States.

Joining us today is Sameer Dossani, Director of the 50 Years Is Enough Network. Sameer attended the Forum in Atlanta and also served on the National Planning Committee of the USSF, the group that helped put the whole thing together.

Also with us is Rosa Lozano from the FMLN and the DC Committed for immigrant rights.
