Connecting the Dots: Poverty, Racism, and Drones - Metro Justice

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

    I have just set up a basic UStream channel for the Cornel West talk here, which will hopefully go live and without any glitches at 1:45 p.m. on Sunday. Please share the link, date, and time with everyone you know who is interested!

    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)
