The second panel discussion of the Kitchener-Waterloo Peoples Summit (KWPS) focuses in on the links between global capitalism, environmental destruction and local struggles.  AW@L’s  dan kellar joins professor Michel Trescello in this discussion at the KW community centre for social justice which also featured opinions in ongoing colonialism, systemic interconnectedness, diversity of tactics and anarchisms.


Part Two of this podcast features the open question period which took place after the discussion.

The KW Peoples Summit is running from May 3rd to June 16th 2010 and features panel discussions, workshops, authors, music, movies, and poetry themed around the upcoming G8 and G20 summits and convergences which are taking place in Huntsville and Toronto from the 18th to the 27th of June.  Working with veteran community organizers, faith, youth, and cultural leaders, academics and students, the KWPS aims to present a well rounded understanding of the impacts caused through the policies formed, and the ideologies advanced, at the undemocratic G8 and G20 leaders summits.  The KWPS hopes to mobilize citizens in and around Waterloo region in the quest for social justice.
