40 years ago this Summer, the Young Lords Party - a defiant and
revolutionary force of Puerto Rican youth - emerged out of the concrete
circumstances faced by their people in the United States. They quickly
became, and continue to be an inspiring example for the ongoing struggle
against the vile racist and exploitative system of capitalism.

For the Puerto Rican independence movement, September 23rd is among the most
symbolic dates – El Grito de Lares historically celebrates the 1868
rebellion against slavery and Spanish colonialism and was given new
significance in 2005 when the FBI assassinated revered independence leader
and founder of Los Macheteros, Filiberto Ojeda Rios.*

Hear from PSL leader and former Young Lord Carlito Rovira who will discuss
the Puerto Rican liberation movement and how we can apply the lessons of the
Young Lords to today's pressing need for revolutionary struggle*

*- ALSO -

U.S. Imperialism and Central America*

On June 28th, the U.S.-backed Honduran military overthrew democratically
elected President Manuel Zelaya, embarking on a new chapter in a long and
violent history of imperialist intervention in Central America.

*Hear a presentation on the role of U.S. imperialism in Central America and
the historical context of the region's recent developments.*

*- AND -

Update: Free the Cuban Five!*

September 12th, 2009 marks the 11th year since five Cuban political
prisoners were unjustly arrested and imprisoned for monitoring the
activities of Miami-based terrorist organizations, in order to prevent
terrorist attacks on their native Cuba. More than 3,000 Cubans have died as
a result of these terrorist attacks in the past 40 years.

*Hear an update on the continued struggle to free the Cuban Five and get
involved! For more information, visit http://www.freethefive.org*
