The Hunger Games and Real World Economic Injustice

2:30 - 4:00 p.m.
University of Illinois at Chicago
725 W. Roosevelt Rd.
Chicago, IL 60607

Some critics see The Hunger Games as an allegory for today: staggering world poverty amidst growing economic inequality. Part of Global Activism 2012, this panel explored real-world economic injustices and possibilities for creating a more equitable and fair system locally and globally. It took a closer look at globalism, militarism and the impact of the economic crisis. CEPR Co-Director Mark Weisbrot took part in the discussion. Also participating in the panel: Kathy Kelly, co-coordinator of Creative Voices for Non-violence and author of Other Lands Have Dreams: from Baghdad to Pekin Prison, and Touissaint Losier, a doctoral candidate in history at the University of Chicago and a Chicago Anti-Eviction Campaign organizer. Harishi Patel, a cultural organizer with Jane Addams Hull-House Museum and Chicago activist, moderated.
