Moonstone Arts Center have put together a five part series called Class Warfare in Philadelphia

08.30.11

Dear Friends,

The last couple of years have been both angering and frustrating. What the hell is going on? How do you make sense out of it? Who understands the economy? Is it really as complicated as they make it seem? What do we do about it?

Our friends at the Moonstone Arts Center have put together a five part series called Class Warfare in Philadelphia to help us understand what has been happening and how people have been responding.

“The last several decades have seen a steady increase in the attack on the middle and lower classes. In the middle of the worst economic conditions since the Great Depression, the rich are getting much, much richer while everyone else sinks toward the economic bottom. This is a frontal attack by the rich on the rest of us. What can we call it except Class Warfare? We are under attack and have not recognized it; we are headed back to the “Gilded Age” of the 1890’s. But the Gilded Age gave rise to the Progressive Age, the rise of Unions, and Social Welfare. We can learn from the past and create solutions to the present problems.”

The programs take place on:

September 8 – The Financial Sector
September 22 – Foreclosures
October 6 – Vacant Land
October 20 – Unions & the Public Sector
November 3 – Communities Confront Class Warfare

Plus Sheriff candidates’ debate eviction on October 26

You can get more information on these programs on-line at www.moonstoneartscenter.org/classwarfare and flyers are available at Moonstone, 110A S. 13th Street, 2nd floor, 215-735-9600. Attached is a flyer for the first program on September 8, 2011. I hope you can join us. Any help you can give to spread the word would be appreciated.
