Update: Due to many complexities on my part, I will not be speaking at this event, but I urge you to go...in fact, it is a whole week of events!
Thanks to Lauren Levin and the other orgnzrs of the Summer School 2012 event for inviting me to talk/converse/suggest somatic interactions on the idea of "the city" (8/7). And, the dance party just about puts me over the anticipatory edge.

In the spirit of Occupy and the long history of experiments in free radical education, we propose a week-long open summer school organized around our urgent political concerns.
Police repression of the Oakland Commune and Occupy movements in the Bay Area; the devastating, on-going increases in tuition at California's public universities; the privatization and closure of our public schools – these only intensify our desire to resist.
In the spirit of necessary struggle and collective education, we hope you'll join us for a week of learning, dreaming, planning, and enacting what's next.
See you in August !
Love & solidarity
The Committee for the Summer School 2012
