We have another great line up for you this week at AWOP Radio! This week we will be talking #OCCUPY with AWOP contributing editor and President of Life O Mike.org, Leslie Boyd. Leslie was on the ground in DC with the contingent of people who were pepper sprayed at the Museum during the Oct 2011 event. Leslie will be on our panel to give us a first hand account of what it was like on on the ground in DC for the convergence of a number of different social justice groups on the capital.
Please take a moment to check out her blog where she works tirelessly to make sure no more families ever have to lose a son because they can't afford healthcare.
We are also excited to welcome David Swanson of the Site "Let's try Democracy" to our #OCCUPY panel! David is a Co-Founder of AfterDowningStreet.org, creator of ProsecuteBushCheney.org and Washington Director of Democrats.com, a board member of Progressive Democrats of America, the Backbone Campaign, Voters for Peace, and the Liberty Tree Foundation for the Democratic Revolution, and chair of the Robert Jackson Steering Committee.
In addition to being an activist, David is the author of "War Is A Lie" and "Daybreak: Undoing the Imperial Presidency and Forming a More Perfect Union." He blogs at http://davidswanson.org and http://warisacrime.org and works for the online activist organization http://rootsaction.org.
