The Green Institute at the US Social Forum
The Green Institute had a significant presence at the US Social Forum, being a co-sponsor of the Democracy Tent as well as sponsoring three panels: Colonialism in the United States, Corporate Control of Hip Hop, and the N-Word Forum. Head-Roc, who was one of the presenters of the two latter events, also performed on the Pine St. state with his partner, Peace Justice Universal.
The Social Forum started off Wednesday afternoon (June

the core of the social forum events. The march attracted over a
thousand participants, a good sign of things to come. The Social Forum
eventuall attracted well over 10,000 participants.
