Distinguished professor, activist and theorist, David Harvey was invited to speak at the 10th annual Ric Pfeffer Memorial Lecture series on his new book, Rebel Cities: From the Right to the City to the Urban Revolution. Known for his theoretical work on "historical-geographical materialism", and his sharp critique and analysis on neoliberalism, Dr. Harvey focused his lecture on the dynamics and resistance against the dominance of finance capital.

In recognition of Black History Month, Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle (LBS), hosted a public debate on the meaning of Black history and Black identity in a “post-racial” moment. The debate was held at the cooperative events venue - 2640, this past Saturday, February 10th.

On Monday, Jan.19th, 2012, a.k.a - Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, The Indypendent Reader caught up with Lester Spence, at the kick-off action for the Schools Not Jails five-day "pop-up" occupation.

This morning at 3am Baltimore City Riot Police blocked off the roads surrounding McKeldin Square, the site of Occupy Baltimore, and moved in to evict the ten-week old encampment. No arrests nor injuries were reported as the roughly 50 people at the site were quickly forced to pack up their things and leave.

An emergency General Assembly is to be held at McKeldin Square at 10am today.
