Eugene V. Debs Centennial 2018--Part 7: Margaret Kimberley


I was among the speakers at the Eugene V. Debs Centennial program in
Cleveland, Ohio. In 1918 Debs was convicted of sedition for giving an
antiwar speech in Canton, Ohio. The Fifth Annual Cleveland LaborFest
hosted the event. You can see all of the videos here.

Panelists spoke on the following topics:
(1) Eugene Debs & American Socialism
(2) The Espionage Act and its censorship of free speech and the right to dissent
(3) U.S. militarism and the drumbeat for endless war
(4) On the question of a progressive political formation independent of the two-party system.

Big thanks to RT America for inviting me to appear with Anya Parampil and discuss the ongoing outrage of police murder in this country.

#Unity4J Online Vigil in support of Julian Assange 4.0

I'm grateful to have been invited again to speak for Julian Assange.For now the Ecuadorean government has allowed him to stay in itsLondon embassy, but he is literally cut off from contact with theoutside world. He has no phone or internet connections and is not allowed any visitors. So we must speak for him.

I joined activists from around the world on September 1 to do just that. I start at about 1 hour 6 minutes into the program but you can also see and hear Suzie Dawson, Joe Lauria, Nat Parry,Ray McGovern, Ann Garrison, Daniel Ellsberg, Don DeBar, Craig Murray, Niko House and others in 11 hours of conversation about Julian and the political issues surrounding his imprisonment. Great binge watching if I do say so myself.
