GPOC hosts Richard Wolff and Ellen Brown in Santa Ana
In cooperation with KPFK, the GPOC was proud to present Richard Wolff to speak at the Delhi Center in Santa Ana this past Feb. 12th. The crowd was guesstimated around 400+ to hear a message that is not widely heard in this County.
Ellen Brown started the program by explaining the advantages of state banks.
Richard Wolff then told us how we got out of the Great Depression, how we got back into the mess we’re in, and how we should follow Greece’s lead in voting for those “third” parties that no one believes have a chance, with our banner behind him.
