Public Commons vs. Corporate Privatization

Public Commons vs. Corporate Privatization

November 14

With Mayor Newsom trying to give away the city’s wi-fi space to a corporate consortium, efforts by Bechtel and other private contractors to take over our public water system, the ongoing scandal of PG&E selling us our own “public” power and their current efforts to take over alternative power, incessant pressure to privatize the public schools, a national culture that blindly accepts corporate interests as preferable to public interests, we’ll talk about how the San Francisco Bay Area can begin a concerted push back. Ted Nace (“The Rise of Corporate Power and the Disabling of Democracy”), Jessica Bell, Matt Leonard, David Cobb, Shannon Tracey, Raymond Nat Turner.
