Video: Relief, Occupations, and the Haiti Crisis

Here is a recent talk by Toronto-based activist and writer Justin Podur called "Relief, Occupations, and the Haiti Crisis." I always appreciate reading or hearing what Podur has to say. In contrast with the difficult and (to many people) unsettling way left thought is sometimes presented by folks more interested in performing themselves as "clever" or "radical" than in actually creating change, Podur has a real talent for bringing out how sensible and ordinary left analyses can be without losing political clarity or incisiveness. Give it a listen:
