Economic and Ecological Transformation for Jamaica and Haiti

June 12, 2013


During the weekend of June 7-9 2013 I had the honor to participate on a panel at the Left Forurm 2013: The largest annual intellectual conference of leftists in the United States. The forum was on economic and ecological transformation for Jamaica and Haiti. In the videos below you will view the full panel made up of myself, Haitian Labor Activist Kiki Makandal, Teamsters Union 808 leader Christophe Silvera, speaking on the situation in Jamaica, and Colia LaFayette Clark, of HUERA: Humanism Economy Rights Art.  The moderator and facilitator is Cecile Lawrence, leading member and former candidate from the Green Party of New York.

The conversation ranges from subjects I’ve touched on in some of my writing such as Haiti For Sale and The Importance of Haiti. Historical Imperialism, U.S. destabilization, the role of NGOs, neoliberalism, global austerity, and the role of international labor are just a few of the many topics discussed on this great panel. I hope you enjoy and receive some benefit from the discussion.
