Life-long activist and author Medea Benjamin will discuss U.S. foreign policy and militarism, including the continuities between regimes, and the complicity of Canadian governments, as well as how activists mobilize through the anti-war movement.
Signed copies of Medea's most-recent books on killer drones, the U.S.-Saudi connection, and Iran will be available at this event.
Free Admission. Refreshments will be served.
Medea Benjamin is the co-founder of the women-led peace group CODEPINK, and the human rights group Global Exchange. An advocate for social justice for more than 40 years, Medea is described as “one of America’s most committed — and most effective — fighters for human rights” by New York Newsday, and “one of the high profile leaders of the peace movement” by the Los Angeles Times. She was one of 1,000 women from 140 countries nominated to receive the Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of the millions of women who do the essential work of peace worldwide. Medea has authored ten books and her articles appear regularly in The Guardian, The Huffington Post, CommonDreams, Alternet and The Hill.
