Date Tuesday November 15
Time 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Location Details
Hillside Club, 2286 Cedar Street, Berkeley
Event Type Speaker
Organizer/AuthorBob Baldock
The co-founder of Code Pink and Global Exchange courageously explores the curious relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia, a country long infamous for brutally repressing women and dissidents, supporting terrorists worldwide, and promoting Wahhabism, the most extreme interpretation of Islam. Assuming you live in the United States, you should be aware of how much effort your government puts into facilitating and defending the crimes of Saudi Arabia. The Saud royal family keeps millions desperately poor. They send religion police around to beat the hell out of people, while they themselves party all over the globe with alcohol, cocaine, prostitutes, and gambling. Most religions are banned; you can be imprisoned, tortured, mutilated, or beheaded simply for being a follower of another religion. This event will be hosted by Flashpoints' Kevin Pina. It is co-sponsored by Code Pink.
