Viva Palestina Reportback - New England United regional meeting

Where: Encuentro 5, 33 Harrison Ave, Chinatown, 5th Floor, Boston

When:  Saturday, August 1,   1 p.m.

Program: Jeff Klein of Dorchester People for Peace will report back on the Viva Palestina humanitarian aid convoy which reached Gaza on July 15.   (Read Jeff's reports from Gaza)

The New England United business meeting will follow at 1:45 p.m   Please join us.  

Just today, the PM of Iraq admitted that US troops may be asked to stay beyond 2011.  The expansion of the war into Pakistan has displaced millions of civilians and deepened the possibility of civil war.  The troop surge in Afghanistan is creating only more opposition to the US presence. 
We will come together to discuss  fall antiwar action proposals and need your input!
