Chris is keen on A New Way Forward and Zephyr wrote about the group here. I had a chance to talk with Kyle Krahel-Frolan a New Way Forward organizer when he was on a GRITtv panel discussing What Next? (after the bank bonus brouhaha.) The conversation's rich -- and looking around the table here, I was struck with the smarts of the crew. Protest can be knee-jerk, (and sometimes that's just right) but these organizers have their heads' screwed on.
Laura Flanders is the host of GRITtv which broadcasts weekdays on Free Speech TV (Dish Network Ch. 9415) on cable (8 pm ET on Channel 67 in Manhattan and other cities) and online daily at GRITtv.org and TheNation.com.
