Loyal peace calendar readers: I am totally overbooked through the weekend, but I wanted to get out word about an exciting meeting at Sabathani tomorrow. So here it is, plus a few events for the weekend. A full peace calendar should be out by Sunday evening. Peace, Charley Underwood ******************** Protesting the RNC in 2008? Meeting THIS Saturday 2/3 @ 2pm Sabathani Community Center 310 East 38th Street, Minneapolis Office of Welfare Rights Committee (room #207) The Republican National Convention is coming to the Twin Cities in September 2008. The eyes of the world will be on St. Paul, as the Republicans meet to nominate their next candidate for President. But the real news will be breaking on the streets outside the Xcel Center, as progressive people from around the country gather to protest. We will demand that U.S. troops get out of Iraq. We will call for money for human needs, not for war. We will protest the Republican Agenda, and in its place, demand peace, justice and equality. This meeting is for all individuals or organizations who want to be involved in organizing our response to the RNC in 2008. Bring your plans, your ideas, your questions and your enthusiasm. Please share this invite with others. Contact jess [at] antiwarcommittee.org if you have questions or can't make this meeting but want to stay informed about future meetings or activities. ************************* 1/26 to 2/15, Katherine Nash Gallery presents "Critical Translations," with themes such as the Iraq war, gaps between rich and poor, Katrina, post-9/11 life, etc, located at the Regis Center for Art, 405 - 21st Ave S, West Bank, Mpls.
