The US Social Forum in Detroit was last week, from Jun 22nd-June 26th

We have part one of a special report on last week’s US Social Forum in Detroit, where tens of thousands of beautiful activists, organizers and people who are simply sick and tired of being sick and tired, came together to network, strategize and create local, regional and national goals. On today’s special, we’ll hear testimonials about the devastation occurring in people’s communities around the country; also, we’ll hear about a new exciting domestic workers’ alliance that’s been built at the US Social Forum; finally, we’ll end the show with Radio Flash, that is, Flashpoints en Espanol, also featuring sounds from the US Social Forum in Detroit.
