All talks are free & open to the public
Hear the talk that "stunned" Colin Powell's top aide (Col. Lawrence Wilkerson) into asking:
Is the US Harboring Terrorists & Imprisoning Those Who Tried to Monitor Them?
featuring Atty. Leonard Weinglass, on the case of the "Cuban 5" & how it exposes the so-called U.S. war on terrorism.
Leonard Weinglass is the famed criminal defense attorney in the cases of Daniel Ellsberg & the Pentagon Papers, Angela Davis, the Chicago Eight, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Amy Carter (daughter of the former president), and Antonio Guerrero of the Cuban Five.
Atty. Weinglass was the first recipient of the Clarence Darrow award in 1974, and in 2004 the American Trial Lawyers Assn voted to name an annual award after him, The Leonard I. Weinglass Award, honoring lawyers who contribute to human rights and civil liberties causes.
Col. Lawrence Wilkerson (ret.), Colin Powell's Chief of Staff at the State Dept. for four years in the current Bush administration (& before that at the Pentagon), recently wrote a powerful essay on how moved he was by Weinglass' presentation on the case of the Cuban Five.
