Radical Women hosts a public speak out, featuring updates on critical free speech, labor, and anti-war court cases As the nightmarish U.S. occupation of Iraq continues to devour lives and resources, Bush’s war on terror has unleashed an assault on precious constitutional rights here at home. With the jingoistic backing of the president and Congress, McCarthyism and spying on one’s neighbors are making a comeback while the rights of demonstrators, immigrants, political and sexual minorities, women, and youth are under attack. The good news is that grassroots groups around the country are organizing to defend civil liberties from the Patriot Act and increasing police state tactics. Speakers include: * Bay Area activists involved in defending their right to speak out against war profiteers Lockheed Martin * Supporters of conscientious objector Stephen Funk * Anti-war organizers suing the Oakland Police over the April 7 assault on peaceful demonstrators and unionists at the docks * Advocates of Freedom Socialist candidate Linda Averill’s fight against public disclosure laws that violate the First Amendment * and more Come learn about these important cases, discuss the crucial role of militant feminist leadership in fighting back, and share your ideas for building resistance. Everyone welcome! A tasty home-cooked dinner, with vegetarian option, served at 6:15pm for a $6.50 donation.
