For those of you in the New York Metropolitan Area and those coming from afar for the Left Forum, I am writing to let you know that Peace & Planet has organized two workshops.
The No to NATO/No to War workshop, with Bahman Azad, Jackie Cabasso (chair) and myself will be this coming Saturday afternoon, May 21 from 3:30 to 5. We’ll be in room 1.123 of John Jack College, 534 W. 59th St. Two few people understand NATO as a global, imperial and nuclear alliance, and as we approach this July’s NATO summit, we thought we should do what we can to bring the peace and justice movements into a deeper understanding of what NATO actually is. http://www.peaceandplanet.org/left-forum-event-no-to-natono-to-war/
The Imperative of Nuclear Disarmament with Jackie Cabasso, M.V. Ramana, Jim Anderson (chair) and myself will be our second Peace and Planet workshop at the Left Forum, also Saturday. It is scheduled for 10 – 11:50 a.m. in room 1.124. http://www.leftforum.org/content/imperative-nuclear-disarmament-increasingly-dangerous-world
