U.S. Intervention in Colombia, Oct. 28

Tom Burke, co-founder of the Colombia Action Network and a recent target of the FBI for his political activities, will be speaking at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee on Thursday, Oct. 28, at 7:00pm in Bolton Hall B46 on the topic "U.S. Intervention in Colombia."

Burke will be talking about U.S. foreign policy in Colombia, the School of the Americas, and Plan Colombia.

Burke is a long-time trade union and Latin America solidarity activist. He helped launch the Boycott Coca-Cola campaign in the 1990's, organized delegations to Colombia, and is outspoken in the media on U.S. foreign policy in Colombia.

Burke was recently subpoenaed, along with around a dozen other international solidarity activists, to a Grand Jury in Chicago, for what many consider to be a repressive move on the government to intimidate international solidarity activists who challenge U.S. foreign policy.

This event is being hosted by Milwaukee Students for a Democratic Society. It is free and open to the public.
