Join us for a brief check-in with Occupy Baltimore organizers. They will discuss the notice from the City of Baltimore that protesters can only receive a permit to remain in McKeldin Square if they adhere to strict guidelines, including allowing no more than 2 people to spend the night in the park.

Then, we’re joined by Bill Fletcher and Dr. Kostis Papadantonakis for a discussion about the legacy of the Arab Spring, and an update on the protests in Greece.
