Roy Bourgeois Coming to Long Island and NYC in May

By admin on April 15, 2013

Mark your calendars, New Yorkers! SOA Watch cofounder Roy Bourgeois will be in town from May 2 to 4, and there are plenty of chances to hear him speak:

Thursday May 2 7:30 PM
Poke the Bee Hive, Rock the Boat, Cross the Line, Speak Truth to Power: Roy Bourgeois and CODEPINK and Global Exchange cofounder Medea Benjamin

Roy will report back from his recent trips throughout Latin America, and update us on the latest developments in the 22-year struggle to close the School of Americas. He will explain how his activism lead him on another related path: standing up for the rights of women in the Catholic Church. Medea will enlighten us with excerpts from her explosive new book Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control, and relate some of her daring exploits with CODEPINK: at the US Social Forum in Tunisia, within the U.S. Senate Chambers and throughout the world.
Join the resistance and learn how to become part of the solution.
