Baltimore: Problems And Conditions Precipitating Police *

*Brutality In The Community!withStephan Janis, author of You Can’t Stop Murder: Truths About * *Policing in Baltimore and Beyond and Why Do We Kill?: The * *Pathology of Murder in Baltimore. Janis’ recent stories include * *The True Toll of Policing in Baltimore – The Arrest of a 7-Year-Old * *and A Walk Through The Neighborhood Where Freddie Gray * *Lived and Died*

As protesters decry Freddie Gray’s death and plan more rallies in Baltimore, we’ll speak with Stephan Janis, an award-winning investigative reporter with *The Real News*, who has authored two books exposing corruption and incompetence in the Baltimore police department, and we’ll examine the confluence of poverty, poor governance, and racial animus that fuels police violence in the city.

*Insurgent Trade Unionism in South Africa featuring Luke Sinwell, senior researcher at the University of Johannesburg, * *whose research includes radical theories and practices of * *participatory **governance, social movements and housing struggles,* *ethnographic **research methods and action research. In addition to * *his book on **Marikana, he is co-editor of Contesting Transformation: * *Popular * *Resistance in Twenty-First Century South Africa *The Marikana massacre, which witnessed 34 mineworkers being gunned down by the police August 16, 2012 arguably marked a key turning point in South African history.

However, we know very little about the informal networks that were created by mineworkers in order to challenge management not only at Lonmin (Marikana), but also at Amplats and Impala South African.

Luke Sinwell works closely with militant workers, especially miners, and the Left, particularly the Democratic Left Front, and will talk about mining, capitalism and the spirit of Marikana.

Recently the Democratic Left Front acting in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement in the U.S. held a march on the U.S. consulate in protest against the police murders of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, linking police brutality in the U.S. to what militants face in South Africa.
