Wednesday, Jan. 8 Occupy Corvallis Reading Group

The reading group meets this Wednesday eve, January 8, at 6 PM in our regular and accustomed room, Hovland 104 on the OSU campus.

At our last meeting, we decided to read two articles, each by someone who will speak at the upcoming Spring Creek Project conference, “Transformation without Apocalypse: How to Live Well on an Altered Planet,” taking place on Feb. 14-15. http://calendar.oregonstate.edu/event/89589/ 

 
One of the speakers will be Rob Nixon, author of “Slow Violence and the Environmentalism of the Poor.” Here is an article by him that provides a summary of the major ideas in his book:
