Speaking Event: Gaza's Ark
Voices for Justice in Palestine presents Col. Ann Wright, American Soldier and Diplomat Extraordinaire speaking about Gaza's ARK, a project to build a boat and sail from Gaza with Palestinian goods for export to rejuvenate the local industry, renew Gaza's sailing tradition, empower the local population and challenge Israel's economic siege.
Since resigning from the State Department in protest of the 2003 invasion of Iraq, retired Col Ann Wright has been speaking out for peace. She has been arrested numerous times for peaceful, nonviolent protest of US policies in the Middle East.
Col. Wright's talk will be followed by Light Lunch for $5.
