======== MEDEA BENJAMIN: RESISTING THE EMPIRE ================================

First Church in Cambridge, Margaret Jewett Hall
11 Garden St., Cambridge - 3 blocks from Harvard Sq T*


Creative action is what CODE PINK co-founder Medea Benjamin is all about!  
 An advocate for social justice for more than 30 years, Medea has been  
described as “one of America's most committed – and most effective –  
fighters for human rights” and “one of the high profile leaders of the  
peace movement.”

Medea is a leader in challenging the powerful forces of lobby groups, from  
AIPAC to the NRA, and weapons manufacturers which have a near death grip on  
the policies coming out of Washington.

Recently returned from solidarity trips to Gaza and to protest U.S. drone  
strikes in Pakistan, Medea will discuss the state of the Obama  
administration's foreign policy, including the implications of U.S. drone  
warfare; the need to force a contraction of the Pentagon budget and move us  
into an economy based on peaceful coexistence and preserving the planet; and  
the role of peace activists in exacting these changes.

Sliding scale donation $5-$10; no one turned away. Proceeds after expenses  
will be donated to legal expenses of anti-drone protesters.
