With the help of Jacob Levich (whose piece on the Gates Foundation in the latest issue of Aspects can be found here), the Research Unit for Political Economy sponsored a panel at the Left Forum, New York. The panel was called “Toxic Philanthropy: The Gates Foundation, Public Health, and Imperialism”. The speakers were Jacob Levich, Kwame Fosu (of the Rebecca Project), and Brenda Biddle (of AGRAWatch). The panel was reported to be a success, with a packed hall and a highly engaged audience. You can view the proceedings below.
