Friends,

Things at encuentro 5 and with Mass. Global Action continue at a crazy pace
(with some fun too, see photos from our Dance Party,
http://on.fb.me/I7NmVQ). Two upcoming educational events really get to
central concerns of the
day. The first, next Wednesday, April 25, is a Global Teach-In on economic
alternatives, and the second, one week from this Saturday, on April 28, is
a Teach-In on Iran (or more accurately, US aggression toward that country).
Look out for upcoming events (including a series with the eminent thinker,
Richard Levins). at http://www.encuentro5.org. Here are the details:

 A New War in the Middle East? A Teach-in on Iran
Submitted by ujpadmin1 on Fri, 04/20/2012 - 9:37am.
*When:* Saturday, April 28, 2012, 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm
*Where: *Suffolk University Law School • 120 Tremont St - First Floor
Function Room • Park St T • Boston

The situation in the Middle East is tense and dangerous.  The US wants oil,
strategic position and regime change in Iran.  Already there are harsh
economic sanctions, assassinations and naval patrols of the Persian Gulf.
 Israel warns of a possible military attack on Iran's nuclear installations
as "all options are on the table."   We must stop a big new war in the
Middle East!
