Rock the Boat, Cross the Line & Speak Truth to Power
An Evening with Roy Bourgeois and Medea Benjamin

Roy Bourgeois (founder of the School of the Americas Watch) and Medea Benjamin (CODEPINK/Global Exchange cofounder) have sustained the Antiwar movement for decades and inspired activism in others. Join with them in the growing resistance to U.S. militarism, drone warfare and gross human rights violations.
Roy will report back on the latest developments in the 22 year struggle to close the School of Americas including direct action at the border with Mexico, encounters with leaders in Latin America (six have pulled their troops from the SOA!) and tell why he recently was excommunicated by the Vatican for standing up for the rights of women.
Medea will enlighten us with excerpts from her explosive new book Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control and relate some of her daring exploits with CODEPINK: at the US Social Forum in Tunisia, within the U.S. Senate Chambers and throughout the world.
