What are the impacts of the current US war in Iraq?  Are we heading  
towards unending war in the Middle East, involving more nations such  
as Iran?  What realistic  possibilities exist for withdrawal?  What  
sort of government or situation is likely to result?  How has this  
war damaged US foreign relations and ability to conduct diplomacy?   
What are the effects on terrorism?  What is the real agenda of our  
government planners, what is at stake, and who stands to gain?  What  
are the human costs?  The costs to the US economy and social programs?

Professor Noam Chomsky will be speaking to answer these questions and  
more as he addresses "The Impacts of the Iraq War."  As the war  
stretches on and threatens to spread into unending war in more  
countries, this is an important time to hear from Professor Chomsky,  
deepen our understanding of the workings of power, and consider how  
we can best work towards lasting peace and social justice.

Doors open at 6:00pm.  Musical introduction by a Brass Quintet, doing  
American shape note and Bulgarian village harmonies.  Noam Chomsky  
will speak followed by a question and answer period. Next will be a  
slideshow by Carl Kurz, founder of Bikes Not Bombs, giving an  
illustrated history of BNB's beginnings in war-torn Nicaragua, and an  
updated overview of BNB's international and youth work today.  Noam  
Chomsky has been a Bikes Not Bombs donor and member for more than 12  
years, and he will be speaking as a benefit for Bikes Not Bombs.

Roxbury Community College (RCC) is at 1234 Columbus Ave.  The Main  
Stage takes up the entire first floor of the Media Arts Building,  
which is at the corner of Columbus Ave and Malcolm X Blvd.  The Media  
Arts Center is directly across Columbus Ave. from the Roxbury  
Crossing T stop on the Orange Line.  It is across Malcolm X Blvd from  
the Reggie Lewis Track and Field Center.  The Southwest Corridor Bike  
Path runs alongside Columbus Ave and directly in front of the T  
station - from there you'll cross Columbus and find campus bike  
racks.  For car parking, going southwest (with RCC on your left and  
the T station on your right, Tremont and Malcolm X Blvd behind you)  
once you pass the final large brick building of RCC, turn left onto  
Cedar Street, and and immediate right into a large parking lot.
