Final Reminder - Antiwar Soldiers Speaking 11-17-2006 7 p.m. Judson Church

Matthew Capri | Friends,
Please excuse repeat postings. I cannot over-emphasize the importance of committed activists finding out more about G.I. antiwar sentiment and activism.

Soldiers who organized against the war while serving in Iraq will be speaking at the Judson Memorial Church (55 Washington Sq. South, NYC) on November 17th 2006 at 7 p.m. about their how they organized an anti-war group while deployed and how civilians and veterans can support the GI movement here at home.

We want you to hear about the work that many people are doing to catalyze and build GI resistance to this war.

For the Military Project Organizing Committee,
Matthew Capri

PS: Please forward this meeting notice widely--this is a free public meeting and all are welcome to attend.

Reportback From Brad Will's Memorial in NYC

Tristyn H. | On the weekend of November 11th and 12th activists from all over the country converged on New York City to honor the life and accomplishments of slain journalist, anarchist, and freedom fighter Brad Will. I arrived in the city on Friday morning, a day early, to meet with friends and settle in before what I presumed was going to be an emotional few days. Manhattan hustled and bustled, completely ignorant to the revolution in Oaxaca. Millions of people caught up in their lives, too concerned with where their next meal will come from or which Prada bag to buy to be knowledgeable on foreign or even domestic current events. After all, the Democrats won. So there is no more bad in the world, right? more...  0 Comments
