Noam Chomsky has been a Bikes Not Bombs donor and member for more than 12
years, and he will be speaking as a benefit for Bikes Not Bombs. As the war
stretches on in Iraq and threatens to spread into unending war in more
countries, this is an important time to hear from Professor Chomsky, deepen
our understanding of the workings of power, and consider how we can best
work towards lasting peace and social justice.
Musical introduction by a Brass Quintet, doing American shape note and
Bulgarian village harmonies. Noam Chomsky will speak followed by a question
and answer period. Next will be a slideshow by Carl Kurz, founder of Bikes
Not Bombs, giving an illustrated history of BNB's beginnings in war-torn
Nicaragua, and an updated overview of BNB's international and youth work
We suggest you get your tickets in advance, and the easiest way to do this
is online at *http://www.bikesnotbombs.org/chomsky07*<http://www.bikesnotbombs.org/chomsky07>.
Tickets are on sliding scale and you can choose how much to donate, but we
do encourage you to be generous!
NOTE: This event was rescheduled because of a blizzard in December. If you
had tickets for that event, they are now relevant for the new date, or you
can ask for a refund, or just make your earlier purchase a donation (but if
you won't be using your previous ticket, let us know so we can give your
seat to someone else!)
Roxbury Community College (RCC) is at 1234 Columbus Ave. The Main Stage
takes up the entire first floor of the Media Arts Building, which is at the
corner of Columbus Ave and Malcolm X Blvd. The Media Arts Center is
directly across Columbus Ave. from the Roxbury Crossing T stop on the Orange
Line. It is across Malcolm X Blvd from the Reggie Lewis Track and Field
Center. The Southwest Corridor Bike Path runs alongside Columbus Ave and
directly in front of the T station - from there you'll cross Columbus and
find campus bike racks. For car parking, going southwest (with RCC on your
left and the T station on your right, Tremont and Malcolm X Blvd behind you)
once you pass the final large brick building of RCC, turn left onto Cedar
Street, and and immediate right into a large parking lot.
