From #occupy to revolution
Jed Brandt, Mike Ely, Eric Riebellarsi

Jed Brandt is an editor with the Occupied Wall Street Journal, and together with Eric Ribellarsi, has recently returned from deep investigations into the "movement of the squares" in Greece and the revolutionary movement in Nepal.

Mike Ely is a veteran revolutionary whose political life started with the early SDS and the Black Panther Party in the 1960s, and covers decades of experience attempting to build revolutionary organization, including among coal miners in the wildcat strike movements of the 1970s.
 
All three are participants in the Kasama Project -- a communist effort to re-imagine and regroup for  revolution in the U.S. All have been active in the Occupy Together movement in different cities.
