The Making of a Debt Resistors’ Movement – Feb 26th

by Carolyn and OB Strike Debt

Here is a great chance to understand and strategize about current debt resistance struggles in a historical context:

OB Strike Debt is hosting George Caffentzis, a New York Strike Debt speaker, on the Boston leg of his New England speaking tour.

He’ll be giving a talk titled “The Making of a Debt Resisters’ Movement from Shay’s Rebellion to the Rolling Jubilee,” followed by discussion.

Tuesday Feb. 26 at Community Church of Boston
565 Boylston St (2nd floor)
Boston, MA (in Copley Square)

Food and social time: 6:30 p.m.
Talk starts at about 7 p.m.

George Caffentzis is a Professor of Philosophy at the University of Southern Maine (Portland). He is a member of Strike Debt. He has written books on the philosophy of money as well as many essays on social, political and economic issues. His most recent book, “In Letters of Blood and Fire: Work, Machines, and the Crisis of Capitalism,” will be published by CommonNotions and PM Press.

We welcome everyone to what should be a very interesting and relevant evening.

FYI, George Caffentzis will also be on “Radio with a View” WMBR (88.1FM) Sunday 2/24 at 11:25 a.m.
