Here are a few new events to supplement our June 6 calendar (below)
Friday, June 11, KINGSTON: Opposition to the immense power wielded in the United States by corporations, banks and Wall St. is the subject of a 12 noon rally in front of Democratic Rep. Maurice Hinchey's local office at 291 Wall St. Hinchey, a liberal, most likely agrees with the call of the organizers, the regional MoveOn Council: "Americans have had enough and we want change! We need to reduce the power of big corporations over our democracy." Information, email@example.com.
Saturday, June 12, WOODSTOCK: Did you know that the world's largest organic farming experiment has been going on for over 15 years in our neighboring island of Cuba? Here's a chance to "learn about the Greening of Cuba." A public forum and discussion on this matter will take place 5-7 p.m. at the Library, 5 Library Lane just off Tinker St. Nora Hammond Gallardo, who is associated with Pastors for Peace, will speak. In addition there will be information about the annual Peace Caravan to Cuba, which departs in July. Information, (212) 926-5757.
Friday, June 18, NEW PALTZ: A showing of the film "Under Our Skin" will begin at 8:15 p.m. at the Elting Library, 93 Main St. We are told this free public event is "a gripping tale of microbes, medicine and money, exposing the hidden story of Lyme disease, one of the most controversial and fastest growing epidemics of our time." The sponsor is New Paltz Neighbors for Peace. Information, Tellall45@yahoo.com.
Saturday, June 26, NEW ROCHELLE: Westchester Women in Black will conduct a vigil in solidarity with the struggle of the Palestinian people for national and human rights. It will take place 2-3 p.m. at Main St. and Memorial Highway. They say, "The Gaza Freedom Flotilla tragedy demands that we step up our efforts." CodePink and WESPAC sponsor the event. Men, of course, are welcome. Information, firstname.lastname@example.org.
