Hi everyone, hope you had a great weekend!
Here are this week's events;
Monday, Nov. 17. Tonight there will be a planning meeting for people
interested in participating in Camp Hope, a vigil in Chicago calling on
Obama to take immediate steps on some of his most important campaign
promises, such as closing Guantanamo Bay, submitting the Kyoto protocal for
ratification, and more. You can find out more about Camp Hope at
if you're interested, the meeting will be at 7 PM at the World
Community Center at 438 North Skinker.
Tuesday, Nov. 18. Come out and support the revitalization of St. Louis's
own Independent Media Center. At 7 PM DJ Carlos Jove will provide some
Latin music and at 8 PM the live music starts. The event is at 2639
Cherokee and you can find out more at
Also Tuesday and very cool, but unfortunately at the same time, 1SKY is
hosting a "70s Party to Retrofit our Economy." The party is focused on
"bringing back the best of the 70s: lower emission levels, funk, and style."
You can get the details at
Also Tuesday, *really* unfortunately also at the same time, the Missouri
History Museum is screening "I.O.U.S.A.," a documentary about the
consequences of America's growing national debt. The event will be followed
by a panel of experts; details at
All of those events are cool and deserve our support. The only way I can
see to fix this problem is for everyone to go to something on Tuesday at 7!
Wednesday, Nov. 19. In Lebanon, Illinois, there's going to be an
interesting fundraiser called "Empty Bowls." For $5 you get a bowl of soup
+ bread. For another $5, you get to keep a ceramic bowl, made by McKendree
University faculty. Proceeds benefit Food Outreach in St. Louis, and you
can get more info at
Thursday, Nov. 20. The St. Louis Science Center is sponsoring a
presentation by EarthWays Center's Glenda Abney on "Sustainability: Finding
Your Way Forward." The event will be at the Monarch Restaurant, 7401
Manchester Rd, at 6:30 PM. More info is at
on Nov 20).
Friday Nov. 21. The bus leaves today at 4:30 PM for the annual protest of
the School of the Americas in Fort Benning Georgia. It gets back at 2 AM on
Sunday night/Monday morning. From what I hear, these protests are an
incredible gathering of peaceful people every year and quite an amazing
experience. You can get more details at
Saturday, Nov. 22. As part of the St. Louis International Film Festival,
Webster University will be hosting a presentation called "Dark Days: The
Hollywood Blacklist and Film Noir" at 6:30 PM. There will be screenings of
film noir classic "The Prowler" along with a new short "The Grand
Inquisitor," as well as a panel discussing the influence of the Hollywood
blacklist. More details are at
really, the whole festival has lots of great movies so you might as
check out the whole site.
Have a fun and meaningful week,
