Sami Herbawi, proprietor of Andala's, is hosting Professor Chomsky and

* 2 per page: 

      We hope to make this a night to remember!

Our plans include:

  * Palestinian music
  * White boards on which you can leave your thoughts, wishes, concerns,
    etc for our allies in Gaza and the West Bank. We will share pictures
    of them on the internet.
  * Skype call-ins from Palestine (after Noam's talk and while he is
    still here). [not confirmed]
  * A short candle-light walk after the event to Central Square. We will
    have a few dozen glowsticks on hand; please bring your own if can you.
  * For those who care to be interviewed, we hope to have reporters and
    filmmakers on hand to capture the entire evening and to record your
    thoughts, quotes, cares, suggestions, etc. Soon after the event, we
    will post and distribute the video as part of an educational
    outreach program.

We hope this event will encourage lots of you to join us in regularly 
scheduled cafe tête-à-têtes to brainstorm and plan additional 
educational events - concerning not only Palestine but the role our 
government plays in devastating the lives of all those we share the 
planet with. Isn't it past time for a grand "citizens rising?" *COTW on 
the move!* [*C*itizens *O*f *T*he *W*orld]

As Chomsky said regarding this latest assault on Gaza (2014):
*/"the US and Israel are morally degenerate."/*
We can't live with that. Can you?

Andala will put out a guestbook for you to sign.
