April 2 — I have a stretch in Washington following the United Nations high-level panel on access to medicines in Johannesburg and IP Mosaic at Marquette University.
Thanks for catching Notaries Public at the Hard Rock Cafe. That was a wonderfully enjoyable show for us. Our songs “Meet Me in the Middle” and “Star Field Below” are available for download on Bandcamp.
At Public Citizen we are expanding our work to advance the open knowledge economy; a vision of the commons to support open access to educational materials, Internet user rights and data protection, clean technology transfer as a tool to combat climate change and access to the benefits of science and the arts for all.
The core of our programming continues to be improving access to affordable medicines. Years of work among partners in many countries forced the U.S. government to compromise in favor of public health in order to conclude the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations, much to the chagrin of the pharmaceutical giants and their congressional allies. This is likely to save many lives. Read and watch more in The New York Times, The Washington Post, at WikiLeaks, on Democracy Now! and on our access program‘s web site. Public Citizen recently published this short profile of our program’s work.
Join Foday Mansaray and the stone mining kids of the Borbor Pain Charity School of Hope as we put Ebola behind and work to provide education for all.
