University That Employs Yoo to Honor Powell
Torturer's School to Thank Man Who Helped Lie Us into War and Helped Micromanage Torture
Colin Powell to be honored at Chapman University in Orange County, Calif., Saturday, March 28th
Reception and keynote is at 6 p.m. Dinner is at 7 p.m.
Powell will be the keynote speaker at the dedication reception of the Global Citizens Gala of the opening of the Global Citizens Plaza.
Tickets start at $1,500 if you want to attend this "cocktail attire" event.
We need to be there in full force. We will begin assembling at 4:45 p.m. at the Circle. At 5:15 p.m. we will begin our march to the Chapman University entrance on Glassell Street. This will give us at least 30 minutes to "greet the guests." Bring your signs, make some up.
Remember what Powell did to launch the Iraq war, and that he was one of the principles approving of torture under the "legal" cover provided by Yoo and others.
Learn how to make a citizen's arrest.
Meet at noon to plan if you can:
Saturday, 3/28 12 noon - Meet with OC Activists to plan and learn about April 18th conference on National Security and Torture: Human Rights, Rule of Law and War Crimes.
Noon, at Rutabegorz Restaurant http://www.rutabegorz.com/orange
Then walk down to join up with OC activists at 4:45 p.m. at the Circle in Old Town to assemble and march at 5:15 to Chapman to greet Colin Powell who will be honored by Chapman University and who will dedicate Global Citizens Plaza. Bring your signs, be creative - Colin Powell helped 'sell' the Iraq War to the United Nations and was present at the Oval Office when detailed torture methods were being discussed.
