Protest Colin Powell at the UofR

Colin Powell will be speaking Saturday October 20th at the University of Rochester, from 11am-12. We’re encouraging people to gather for a protest at between 9:00am and 10:00am outside at the junction of Wilson Boulevard and Faculty Road.

There will be a sign-making workshop at the anti-war storefront at 658 Monroe Avenue on Friday from 4-6pm. Also try to see Dahr Jamail speak on his experiences as an independent journalist in Iraq on Friday at 6:30pm at the School Without Walls.

I saw Colin Powell in 1998(?) and he said some of the rudest degrading offensive comments I have ever heard spoken from a podium in response to a students question on the "don't ask, don't tell" policy. -jason
