Report from Bolivia: Pushing Back Against Corporate Globalization
13 Feb 2009
WHEN: Friday, February 20th, 2009, FREE

WHERE: The Jamaica Plain Forum, 6 Eliot St. Jamaica Plain, MA

Based on extensive interviews and first-hand accounts, “Dignity and Defiance” is a powerful eyewitness account of Bolivia’s decade-long rebellion against globalization imposed from abroad. It weaves together stories of regular people striving to make their lives better along with vivid accounts of the political struggles that have made Bolivia international front-page news.

Finally After 54 Days Senate Committee Approves Solis as Labor Secretary.
12 Feb 2009
The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee today voted to send Hilda Solis's nomination for Labor Secretary to the full Senate for approval. Sens. Pat Roberts (R-KS) and Tom Coburn (R-OK) cast the two "no" votes.
