The 2007 Festival of Resistance
In other news, the Festival of Resistance will be on campus on Wednesday, (5 Sept.):
Tables and displays will be up between 10am and 2pm. Films will be showing at Hemenway Theatre from 10-12:30, and then again from about 2-4. The forum is scheduled from 12:30 to 1:30 (and may run a little over).
Don't miss the concert and slam poets in the evening beginning at 5pm. The line-up will be Mass Dissent, Golfcart Rebellion, Black Square [as seen above], and then Rob K and his Co-conspirators. The concert was moved from Campus Center to Manoa Gardens, where you can get refreshments. Mass Dissent and Golfcart Rebellion are both punk bands; Black Square is ska. Rob K defies description -- rock-rockabilly-punk-rant? He'll close the show (probably 8-9), and while he may be constrained by a lack of rafters to swing from, we're sure he'll put on an amazing show.
I just read an e-mail that our GWB will be in Oahu on Saturday. I won't be out at Hickam Air Force Base to greet him with an antiwar message, but might try to catch a bit of reggae or antiwar poems. A little but if socially engaged poetry is good for the spirit.
Speaking of poetry, Beat Generation Bookseller / Publisher/ Poet/ Scholar Lawrence Ferlinghetti is the topic of today's Democracy Now. It is an interesting 1-hour long interview.
