Dr. Oliver Fein is president of Physicians for a National Health Program – an independent, non-partisan, voluntary organization supporting universal, comprehensive, single-payer national coverage for all.
He’s a general internist, a Professor of Clinical Public Health, and the Associate Dean for Affiliations at Weill Medical College at Cornell University.
The importance of single-payer national health care will be discussed.
Fred Magdoff is Professor Emeritus in Plant and Soil Science at the University of Vermont and Adjunct Professor of crops and soils at Cornell University. He’s also an expert on food and human health and a director of the Monthly Review Foundation.
With co-author John Bellamy Foster, his most recent book is “The Great Financial Crisis: Causes and Consequences.”
That topic as well as food and human health will be discussed.
Ian Douglas is editor and correspondent for the Cairo-based Al-Ahram Weekly and a visiting Professor in the Department of Political Science at An-Najah National University in Nablus, Palestine.
He’s also a member of the BRussells Tribunal, named after noted philosopher, mathematician, and anti-war/anti-imperialism activist Bertrand Russell – (1872 – 1970).
Established in 1967 to investigate Vietnam war crimes, the Tribunal is a hearing committee, most recently against the Iraq war and Bush administration imperialism. Its work goes on as Obama continues the same agenda with perhaps more of it planned against Iran.
The Tribunal aims to “globalize resistance against (the) US war OF terror” to awaken people to the urgency to stop it. Its mission and work will be discussed.
For 24 years, Joel Kovel taught and practiced psychiatry and psychoanalysis before leaving these professions in January 1988 to become a Social Studies Professor at Bard College, Annandale, NY where he taught for 21 years until notified of a change on February 7.
Because of his activism and courage to criticize Israel, its Zionist ideology, state-sponsored terror, and decades of lawlessness and egregious behavior, Bard fired him effective July 1, the day after his current contract expires.
That action and Kovel’s work will be discussed.
