Friday October 14, 2011, Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! keynoted the first CICOPA North America Worker Co-op conference in Quebec. Goodman addressed an audience of over 150, including many representatives from worker cooperatives across Canada and the United States.  She told us: "We need a media that covers the movements that create static, and history, like yours." While her main message was about the importance of independent media, she also commented that, "As the Occupy Wall Street movement looks for solutions -  this is what all of you are about!"

This year's Eastern Conference for Workplace Democracy (July 31-August 2) offered a bicycle tour of a "People's History of Pittsburgh", led by Eric Boerer of Bike Pittsburgh.
