Feeling mad as hell about the Republicans' attack on labor? This year's Left Forum, with the theme "Towards a Politics of Solidarity," is the ideal place to vent your frustrations. The annual event is the largest gathering in North America for left-leaning intellectuals and organizers from around the world. Take your pick of more than 300 provocative panel discussions over three days, including "The Obama Years: Potential and Peril for American Progressives," "The Tea Party and the Media," and "How the Exception Became the Rule: The American Middle Class." Keynote speakers include culture critic Cornel West, Barbara Ehrenreich (author of Nickel and Dimed), and Malalai Joya, a former member of Afghan parliament.
