Coffee Hour: Cowboy in Caracas-Perspective of Venezuela's
Democratic Revolution from a Cardboard Shack - Feb. 27

Saturday, February 27th
At the Resource Center of the Americas

Presented in English

Charles Hardy, author of Cowboy in Caracas: A North American's Memoir of
Venezuela's Democratic Revolution, will challenge the poisonous U.S.
government mantra against Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. 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

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
