Occupy Onward Event, New York City, December 18th.

N+1 magazine is holding an “Occupy Onward” event this Sunday in New York City.  I’m on the bill talking about debt with David Graeber (!) and Brian Kalkbrenner of Occupy Student Debt, moderated by Sarah Jaffe of Alternet.  There’s also a panel on Occupy Foreclosures as well as another dealing with the banks and a lot of other content I’m excited to see.

According to the promotion, “it will consist of four lightning-fast panels with some of the most interesting thinkers and activists in the field and then ‘report-backs’ from several of the most active OWS working groups, including labor, legal, and facilitation.”  It is this Sunday, the 18th, from noon to six at the New School (55 W. 13th Street).  It’s free but you should RSVP, and here’s the facebook page to do so.  Hope to see you there!
