Sunday, October 23, 2011 Resource Center for Nonviolence Annual Dinner and Speaker featuring AHMED SALAH.Added to the calendar on Tuesday Oct 4th, 2011 8:19 PM
Ahmed Salah is one of the key organizers of the Egyptian Awakening and a current member of the Kifaya Coordinating Council, one of the main groups continuing to work in Egypt for an end to the military rule and a real democracy in Egypt, the first that ancient nation will have ever seen.
Saleh will be speaking on “The Egyptian Revolt and the Power of Nonviolence”. The strategies that he describes are applicable here in the USA and can be combined with the Occupy movements that are spreading everywhere, including in Santa Cruz, San Jose, San Francisco after being launched on Wall Street as well as with many other kinds of activism.
Ahmed Salah is the executive director of the House of New Future Center for Legal and Human Rights Studies in Egypt and a freelance reporter as well as a full-time activist. Obviously a very energetic and motivated person, Salah remains a member of the Coordination Council of Kifaya and works to create true democratic representation from Egypt’s many geographic, ethnic and other demographic sectors. An Egyptian from a politically active family, Salah is a co-founder of the April the 6th youth movement and the Kifaya Egyptian Movement for Change.
Debra Ellis, who was on the Audacity of Hope Free Gaza Flotilla boat, will emcee the event.
