Sander Levin, along with numerous Michigan establishment Democrats, has agreed to meet with the people and talk about healthcare. This event is being hosted by "Members of Northern Macomb Democratic Party and Clinton Twp. Democratic Party, Congressman Sander Levin and others". The Michigan Democratic Party appears to be framing the town halls as "come let [the establishment] tell you how to save [the ACA]" seminars, but I imagine that it will be difficult to completely avoid talking about the future. See more info at link above.

To make sense of present day Detroit, it helps to know how we've gotten here. For the August meeting of the Detroit Jacobin Reading Group, we will be joined by Dr. Peter Hammer, Director of the Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights at Wayne State, who will present on the evolution of spatial racism in Detroit and our region. Dr. Hammer explores how the geography of our city and region have laid the groundwork for many of the issues we face today. His mapping and analysis can help us address the challenges of remaking our city for all citizens - especially those who have been here for decades. We will meet in the Old Fine Arts Room on the third floor of the Detroit Public Library, Main Branch. The following readings are available for those looking to get a bit of additional background on the issues that will be covered in the presentation. It's also possible that some people might have a lot of interest in the subject but not a lot of time to do the readings, in which case we would still love to have you at the presentation on Tuesday.

Like any good town hall, your ideas and concerns will be heard, your questions answered, and your input used to design change that reflects the will of Michigan voters. Admission is free, and all Michiganders are welcome (including young ones)! However, space is limited, so please reserve your spot by RSVPing on our site or on Facebook. The event will be held in the Howell/Putnam Conference Room.

SEMG Membership Meeting Elks Lodge, 2401 E. 4th St., Royal Oak, MI (at corner of 4th St. & SB I-75 Service Drive, South of 11 Mile Rd.) Regular Sierra Club SEMG Membership meeting, 1st Thursday, monthly. This is the follow-up film made by Josh Fox's award-winning documentary feature GASLAND. The new film continues to explore the controversial method of extracting natural gas and oil known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. It shows both how dangerous the practice is and how pervasive the gas industry's influence on public policy has become. Tempered by Fox's trademark dark humor, the film shows how the stakes have been raised on all sides in one of the most divisive environmental issues facing our nation today. Open to the public; any interested person can attend. 6:30-7:00 Snacks, socializing 7:00-7:10 Announcements 7:10 Presentation

After World War I, England and France stole oil wealth from the Arabian Peninsula. After World War II, the U.S. went to war so U.S. corporations could put their hands on that oil. Hundreds of thousands of civilians have been killed in Iraq, not to mention Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia -- plus U.S. soldiers. There is a human price that must be paid for the capitalist thirst for profit. To put an end to war, we have to put an end to the system whose thirst for profit leads to war.
