Connecting the Dots: Poverty, Racism, and Drones

Rochester Against War, Metro Justice, and Upstate Drone Action invite you to:

Connecting the Dots: Poverty, Racism and Drones
A talk by Cornel West

Dr. West will speak to the relationship between poverty and racism at home, and unending wars abroad. Dr. Cornel West is an engaging speaker and a charismatic individual. He has been called a prominent, provocative, populist intellectual. What is a populist Intellectual? Well perhaps a man who has deep understanding and the ability to communicate with a broad audience. Dr West is a Professor of Philosophy and Christian Practice at Union Theological Seminary and Professor Emeritus at Princeton University. He has a long list of academic credentials, and yet spends much of his time communicating with ordinary people to provide a connection between understanding complex social problems and the becoming empowered in our own lives.

Following Dr. West's talk, we will gather for a permitted rally at near Hancock Air National Guard Base at 4:30 and a short walk to deliver People's Orders of Protection against Drone Terrorism to the base.  

Meet at Metro Justice Parking lot at 11:30am.   Expect to be back in Rochester by 7:30pm

    Just want to remind folks about the carpooling that is being set up from Ithaca to Syracuse by John Hamilton and Caleb R Thomas. Thanks for setting this up guys! Dear Ithaca area friends, We are organizing carpooling to reduce our impact on the Earth as we try to make a just world. We are inviting people to meet between 12 and 12:30 at Greenstar. We will leave remaining cars across the street by the Greenstar "Space") ~ John Hamilton 607-280-5191 (facebookless for LIFE, baby)
