Tom Tresser was an organizer of the No Games Chicago campaign that fought the bid for the 2016 Olympics on the grounds that the games would've bankrupted the city, displaced people from their neighborhoods, destroyed priceless public parks and enriched the coffers of the Democratic Machine through contract kickbacks. Tom is part of a coalition of activists who are coming to together to stop privatization and to defend and extend the commons.
This 5 1/2 minute speech is from an event organized by Citizens Act to Protect Our Water (CAPOW!) at the Chicago Temple on August 3, 2011.
