I attended the Left Forum again this year - going to seven panels and three Plenaries. Good stuff, mostly:)
I'll give my two cents on what I experienced, learned and or taught while there. I think it should be pretty interesting for anyone social justice, activism, coalition building, movement building etc towards a better world.

Investigated investigators do not get prosecuted.
Tampering with the jury is a felony, and that is exactly what Stanislaus DAs investigator Steve Jacobson and District Attorney Dave Harris are accused of in the trial of Aleo Pontillo, owner of AJ bail bonds.
DA’S Fladager and Harris are being charged with contempt not a felony.
The accusation is verified from a declaration by Judge Scott Steffen, who presided over the trial.
The accusation was moved from Judge Steffens court to Judge Silveira and now resides with Judge Linda McFadden, who is holding Jacobson to a contempt charge.
Attorney Frank Carson, who filed the complaint said, “I have no doubt that if I or my investigator had done the same thing to jury members in the same situation, we would have been arrested immediately, restricted from the courthouse and prosecuted on felony charges by the District Attorney’s Office to the fullest extent of the law.”
Carson's Corner host Bob Carson attended the 2015 Left Forum at John Jay College Friday and Saturday, and he recorded some fantastic audio from some of the key radicals in the fight against imperialism and Capitalism, which are one in the same.
On 5-29, the first panel discussion, Against The Narrative: Independent Media and the Left, hosted by Julianna Forlano, featured Glen Ford of the Black Agenda Report, Eddie Conway, former Black Panther and political prisoner, and Paul Jay of The Real News. We will play audio from this discussion, which includes a discussion of black indepedent media and the need for a media alternative to the corporate dominance.
After this panel discussion, Bob had the opportunity to interview John Dennie, a retired postal worker and activist who is protesting a Staples takeover of our postal service.
Bob also had the opportunity to interview Green Party presidential candidate, Jill Stein. The Election Boycott Advocates have been discussing how ineffective third party candidates have been, considering the very system as constructed by the capitalist class. Bob poses this and other questions to Jill Stein.
On 5-30, Bob attended Why We Focus on U.S. Imperialist Wars, hosted by Sara Flounders, of the International Action Center, and Joe Lombardo of UNAC (United National Antiwar Coalition). Both had brilliant observations about U.S. imperialism.
Good Tidings, folks! Welcome to the latest installment of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse airing this Saturday at 6pm EST. For the first segment (The Comic Shoppe), listen to your hosts Dburt, Capt. Kirk and the "Uncanny" Daryll B. wax about the following issues: Dburt is incensed that MJ's Neverland Ranch is for sale (100m, allegedly) without being ascribed National Historic Landmark status; a recent Daily Beast article weighs in on the Marvel vs Fox Fantastic Four/X-men licensing beef; and speaking of Fox, it appears that the famed studio is looking to reboot The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen IP; Robert Rodriguez has been reportedly tapped to helm a Jonny Quest live action film (please no Spy Kids interpolation!); we finally get the chance to delve into DC's Convergence vs Marvel's Secret Wars; Image's Wicked+Divine are slated for a TV adaptation; Anyone notice the Nova Corp of color storyline in the latest Infinity Gauntlet comic this week? And lastly, we discuss the Joseph P. Illidge penned Mission/CBR piece on DC's DC You diversity initiative.
And then there's the Afronerd Radio segment starting at 7pm. Listen to Capt. Kirk and Dburt discuss the following: Dburt still has yet another take on how some POC misinterpret "respectability politics"; hypocrisy alert-2016 presidential hopeful and reknowned neurosurgeon, Dr. Ben Carson appearing on a t-shirt with Dr. King raises eyebrows (I guess past depictions of Biggie/Tupac with various Black political heroes is ok, huh?); a Stanford University study affirms that Black students get punished more harshly than their White counterparts based on unconscious teachers' biases. And lastly, we will attempt to address topics missed from our last broadcast. Call in live at 646-915-9620.
Listen to the "Older and Active" show here on BTR coming up at 8:00 CDT for tips on how boomers and above can get/stay healthy.If being healthy isn't your thing, how about celebrating Cellophane Tape or Grape Popsicles? Or you can go through the day singing, "Who's afraid of the big bad Wolf?" That should make those around you scratch their heads. If that doesn't work, wear bloomers on the job today.
COMMUNISTS HAVE HAD IT TOO GOOD TOO LONG WITH THEIR DIVIDE AND CONQUER TACTICS.
TIME FOR LATINOS TO LEAVE LE PARTIE DE LA MUERTE.
LATINOS HAVE MORE IN COMMON WITH THEIR PATRIOTIC AMERICAN BROTHERS AND SISTERS THAN WHAT THE COMMUNIST MEDIA WOULD HAVE YOU BELIEVE. THE FIRST INGREDIENT OF THE AMERICAN CHARACTER IS HARD WORK. EVERY AMERICAN IDENTIFIES WITH HARD WORKERS AND BUILDERS. MANY LATINOS ARE BURIED ON IWO JIMA AND AROUND THE WORLD WITH THEIR AMERICAN BROTHERS. LATINOS ARE RELIGIOUS AND FAMILY ORIENTED.
THAT IS WHY I WANT TO ELECT CRUZ RUBIO OR CRUZ CARSON.

IF THEY ARE MURDERED OR SOLD WHO WILL KNOW? YOU DON'T THINK THE PARTY OF FLAG BURNERS AND BABY KILLERS CARES. DO YOU?
. CRUZ-RUBIO OR CRUZ CARSON. YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST. WATCH THE DEMO COMMOS TURN RACIST.
THE SPIRIT OF AMERICA ENDORSES TED THE CROSS. VIVE CHRISTO REY.

On this episode of Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates, we discuss the most important issues facing the working class. We'll discuss the U.S. flights over China. Why is the U.S. deliberately trying to provoke China; some have suggested insane brinkmanship on the part of the U.S. Is this part of a larger strategy?
It's been documented that one African American is killed by the police every 28 hours. Unfortunately, virtually no police officers are held accountable. The latest example of this is the acquittal of a white Cleveland police officer who shot and killed an African American couple. Do black lives matter in the capitalist cystem?
Michael Parenti of the Greanville Post wrote an article in defense of existing socialism and socialism of the past. We'll discuss the importance of the article and the implications for the future. http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.greanvillepost.com%2F2015%2F05%2F23%2Fleft-anticommunism-the-unkindest-cut%2F&h=0AQFIdGMH
Also, it was revealed last week through a FOIA lawsuit that the U.S., Saudi Arabi and other allies supported the creation of the Islamic State. Was this a deliberate act to create further military action in Syria and elsewhere?
