What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

Occupy the FBI Files: Guest Speakers, Alan Maki and Coleen Rowley

https://www.facebook.com/events/665774910104173/

Alan Maki is a northern Minnesota activist who has been involved in the peace, labor, civil rights, and environmental movements for over 30 years, and is a socialist. Maki's history of radical activism earned him an FBI file. During the Wednesday meeting of Occupy MN, he will show us his FBI file, give a talk, and do Q & A. His segment will last 30 minutes.

Next, the group will hear from Coleen Rowley. She is a former FBI agent and whistleblower. As a result of her whistle-blowing around the events of 9/11, she was named a 2002 Time Magazine Person of the Year. Since retiring from the FBI, Rowley has been heavily involved with the anti-war movement in the Twin Cities. She also gives regular educational talks and appears on local and national news, i.e. recent appearances in reaction to the Edward Snowden case. Rowley's talk and Q & A will also last 30 minutes.

Following the guest speakers, we will have the regular Occupy MN meeting.
