EMERGENCY USA will have a table this Saturday, November 15 from 10 am to 5 pm at Mission High School in San Francisco at the Howard Zinn Bookfair. Additionally, our Executive Director Eric Talbert will be speaking at the People’s Plenary, which follows immediately afterwords at 5:30 pm.
The first-ever Howard Zinn Book Fair is a “celebration of the books that make us rethink our roles in the world and connect people with hidden histories.” Zinn was a celebrated activist historian and friend of the organization whose book Just War is derived from a talk on the abolishment of war with EMERGENCY founder Gino Strada. Zinn also wrote the forward to Strada’s Green Parrots, which explores the lasting devastation of antipersonnel mines and prospect of continual war.
