Two special events this weekend on (1) inequality; and (2) whistleblowers http://www.occupyboston.org/2014/05/11/this-weekend-inequality-whistleblowers/ This weekend whistleblower and author Peter Van Buren will be in Boston for two very special events at Community Church of Boston (565 Boylston), as well as at least one book reading elsewhere. Peter has a lot to say on many topics we all care about, and I hope you’ll be able to see him while he’s here...
