10:30 AM at Camp Charlie

Radical scholar, Marxist intellectual, and long-time social justice activist, Professor Barbara Foley (Rutgers-Newark) will be giving a short lecture and facilitating a discussion, under the working title: “From Occupy to Revolution: the importance of keeping a radical perspective,” between 10:30 and 11 am this Friday, April 13th at Camp Charlie.

Ride the Rails
4:00 PM at Camp Charlie

Come Ride the Rails with us to spread the word to Boston’s subway riders about Camp Charlie, the Occupy MBTA campaign, and the broader Occupy Boston community. We’ll be meeting at Camp Charlie at 4:00 PM for a brief training, after which we’ll be setting out in teams to connect with Boston’s rush-hour commuters and recruit them for the movement through speaking, leafleting, and distributing copies of the Boston Occupier. Let’s seize the unique opportunity to engage thousands of T commuters about the issues that could immediately impact them — the cuts, hikes, and layoffs — as well as the deeper issues that they raise for us all. See you there!

Race and Class Inequality: Fighting for a People’s T
6:15 PM at Camp Charlie

The recent fare hikes and proposed service cuts are only the most recent effort to divide public transit across race and class lines.   Join us for a crash course on the history of the T — how urban planning choices changed its shape and layout, and how those choices affect the demographics it serves.

“But What Can I Do About it?” Looking Up, Looking Forward
7 PM at Camp Charlie
The T is $5.5 billion in debt.   The legislature is fighting over $51 million in funding for the entire state.   What can you do about it?  You can decide to act.   A teach-in on how to think about action in the face of overwhelming odds, how to get yourself organized and start thinking at the granular level — person by person – about what you can do to make a difference.Signs for Santorum @ OB Queer DA Meeting
