solidarity economy

I woke up to applause just as the plane touched down at Jose Marti Airport in Cuba, a place I had been wanting to visit for decades.  I finally got my chance because of an educational tour organized by the Center for Global Change in Mexico.  Disappointment and grief had kept me up the night before because I wasn’t allowed to board the plane with my tour group because I didn’t have my passport on me.

[Editor's note: this is the first of a two-part conversation between Cliff Martin and Len Krimerman that was originally recorded as an episode of the GEO podcast.  Unfortunately, the recording quality was quite low, even by our standards, and we didn't feel comfortable subjecting listeners to it.  So we're presenting the conversation in text form, below.  Thanks to Rob Brown for doing the transcription.]
