Economic Hit Man author John Perkins
Introduces new book at College of Marin
Drawing on his experiences, John Perkins, in his new book, "The Secret History of the American Empire," describes the post-WWII era as one that created history's first truly global empire -- mostly through economics, rather than the military. Now we find ourselves catapulted toward a future that appears catastrophic to many people; however, in Perkins's view it offers great opportunities. Identifying corporations as "the most influential institutions on the planet," he challenges us to transform ourselves and the companies that so deeply impact our lives. He presents a plan for creating a world "that will make our children proud of us."
Mr. Perkins will speak on at College of Marin Olney Hall, 835 College Avenue, Kentfield. Parking is available in student lots for a $3.00 fee. Mr. Perkins' new book will be available for sale and signing.
This event is co-sponsored by Marin Interfaith Task Force on the Americas and COM's Students for Social Responsibility. An $8-20 donation, $5 students, is requested. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. For more information, please call 415/924-3227, email mitf@igc.org, or go to www.mitfamericas.org.

HEALTH CARE FOR ALL-MARIN
Meeting
Regular monthly meeting: Just a reminder of tonight's Health Care for All meeting. Added to the agenda will be a clip of Michael Moore on Oprah. Eight of us from HCA-Marin got to see a sneak preview of SICKO in Sacramento yesterday -- it is fantastic: funny, heart-breaking, brilliant. We'll talk about what we will do around the June 29th nationwide opening. I haven't yet been able to find out what theater in Marin is getting it-- if anyone knows, please tell us.
Social Justice Center of Marin
1000 Sir Francis Drake #18, San Anselmo
(Directions to the The Isabel Cooke Community Center: Isabel Cooke Center is just west of the Red Hill Shopping Center on Sir Francis Drake (i.e. slightly west of the five-way intersection). Going West on Sir Francis Drake, you pass a Union 76 gas station and then turn right immediately after the long, low Isabel Cooke building. Park in the lot. Walk around the gymnasium, heading East, to reach the building in the back (which also houses Spectrum and the YWCA). Room #18 is at the end of the hall on the left.)
