Sen. Kerry will be delivering a major speech at Faneuil Hall tomorrow morning, Saturday, April 22nd, on the 35th anniversary of his famous testimony in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

From a recent e-mail:

Decades ago I stood up to the Nixon administration and spoke out for a change of course in Vietnam. Four days from now, I will be delivering a speech at Boston's Faneuil Hall on the critically important topic of war and dissent. It's time to remind America that, when a stubborn president has America headed profoundly in the wrong direction, only citizen action can change our country's course.


C-Span will be there to record the speech, and they may show it Sunday evening. If you want to see it, an email to events@c-span.org and viewer@c-span.org might help.

Some Bostonians plan to live-blog the event on DailyKos starting around 10:45am.

The choice of Faneuil Hall is not random.

THE FREEDOM TRAIL -Faneuil Hall

A Boston National Historical Park cooperating site

This old market building, first built in 1742, sits at the site of the old town dock. Town meetings, held here between 1764 and 1774, heard Samuel Adams and others lead cries of protest against the imposition of taxes on the colonies. The building was enlarged in 1806. Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison, and Lucy Stone brought their struggles for freedom here in the 19th century. Market stalls on the first floor service shoppers much as they did in Paul Revere's day.
