His unique perspective on the Chavista revolution comes from the vantage point of living eight years as a Catholic priest in a cardboard shack on a hillside barrio in Caracas. Hardy conveys with affection and admiration the dignity and courage of the ordinary people of Venezuela, people whom the Western media have no connection to. You will come away knowing why Hugo Chavez is loved by these people, and why the U.S. government and the Western media have tried to demonize him. Hardy has been writing and speaking about the political and social reality of Latin America for over forty years, and has visited almost every Central and South American country. He lives in Caracas and maintains a blog at www.cowboyincaracas.com.

Legal Update on the Case of Mumia Abu-Jamal Saturday, 2/27, 3:00 p.m. Walker Church, 3100 16th Ave S, Minneapolis William Mitchell Law School Professor Peter Erlinder will present an update on the latest legal rulings in the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal, political prisoner on death row in Pennsylvania. Mumia is the ultimate police brutality survivor. For years, he was a radio broadcaster telling the stories of oppressed people and he earned the nickname "voice of the voiceless." He also earned the ire of the Philly police, who promised that he would be made to pay for exposing their brutality and corruption. After being shot and severely beaten by police, he was then falsely charged and convicted of murder of a police officer who was killed in the same incident. Despite another man confessing to the shooting, Mumia has remained on death row for over 25 years. His case has taken many twists and turns as it moves through the legal system but one recurring theme has been that the system seems to have a separate set of rules just for Mumia every time his case goes to court. A recent decision by the US Supreme Court follows this trend as it bucked precedent to deny Mumia a new trial. Come learn about the current status of the case and what you can do to FREE MUMIA! --------7 of 7-------- From: Meredith Aby <awcmere [at] gmail.com> Subject: Honduras 2.27 3pm Honduras At The Crossroads* Saturday, February 27 @ 3:00 - 6:00pm @ Walker Library, 2880 Hennepin Ave. Mpls.
