2. Boston event
Note date difference (following weekend)

Forum: The Downing Street Memos

Featuring: Congressman Barney Frank, John Bonifaz, & State Rep. Gloria Fox

Arlington Street Church, July 31, 6:30 pm

The DSMs -- recently leaked to the British media -- demonstrate that, one-year before the Iraq invasion, the Bush Administration knew that the evidence for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq was weak and that IRAQ POSED NO REAL THREAT. Nevertheless, the Bush Administration was already committed to war and intended to "FIX INTELLIGENCE AROUND THE POLICY".

Mr. Frank is a champion of progressive ideas in Congress, and an outspoken critic of the Bush Administration. He was among the first signers of Congressman John Conyer's petition calling on the President to be forthcoming about the information contained in the Downing Street Memos.

Mr. Bonifaz is a constitutional lawyer. In 2003 he challenged President George W. Bush's authority to wage war against Iraq in a federal lawsuit. Mr. Bonifaz is the author of the book "Warrior King: The Case for Impeaching George W. Bush." He is co-founder of a national campaign,, calling for a full congressional investigation into whether the President has committed impeachable offenses in connection with the Iraq war.

Ms. Fox has been a State Representative for twenty years. She is a staunch supporter of justice, equality and public safety, as well as social, environmental, and economic justice. Ms. Fox will share her views on how the illegal Iraq War has harmed Boston and other cities because of the disproportionate impact of budget cuts on inner cities.

presented by Brookline PeaceWorks! co-sponsored by Boston Mobilization, Progressive Democrats of America, Pax Christi, Newton Dialogues on Peace and War and others
