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

We have a special 5th of July edition, featuring interviews from the US Social Forum in Detroit between June 22nd and 26th; we try to give space to the reality of people struggling around the country–from the Poor People’s Economic and Human Rights Campaign to academic boycotts of Israel, as well as the need for libraries and radical childcare; the voices you’ll hear on today’s show are a testimony to the state of our nation and approaches being taken to address social change.
