Making Contact – Crisis as Opportunity: Voices from The U.S. Social Forum

This June, thousands of grassroots activists converged on Detroit, Michigan to attend the United States Social Forum.  Participants said it wasn't a conference, but a movement building process toward ecological and economic justice.  We were at the forum and on this edition of Making Contact, we'll bring you some of the local and international voices we found there.

Featuring: Lidy Nacpil, Freedom from Debt Coalition Vice President in the Philippines; Liepollo Pheko, The Trade Collective in South Africa policy & advocacy director; Invincible, Detroit-based hip-hop artist; Gloria House, Detroit-based professor and long-time activist;
