NYC People's Referendum on Free Trade | On Thursday, June 14th 2007, Harlem will host a historic encounter that seeks to replace murderous backroom dealings with grassroots democracy.

The press and public are invited to join the walking tour of Harlem at 5pm, followed by a 6pm drum circle and 6:30 reception at St. Ambrose Church at 9 W 130th Street, at Malcolm X Blvd. Roger Toussaint, President of Transport Workers Union (TWU) Local 100; and Nicole Lee, executive director of TransAfrica will also join the discussion. more... 0 Comments
