“The Future is Public Conference” Hopes to Redefine Anti-Privatization Movement

The event brings together activists, trade unionists, and researchers to discuss struggles and successes from around the world.  They will be looking at articulating a vision for public services that is not just anti-privatization, but one that is resolutely pro-public when it comes to things like water, health care, education, energy and transportation.

It looks like it will be an amazing event and is already sold out, with 175 people coming from all across North America.
