We start by looking forward to the conventions, including a discussion of the platform they provide for activism. Then onto recent local activism: a protest about inadequate wage increases at the U of Illinois, and a rally on energy policy. We spend an extended period discussing energy policy and public transit. We close by talking about the reputed agreement between the Iraqi and US governments on a timetable for withdrawal.
