Leah Bolger is national president of Veterans for Peace. A commander in the US Navy, she retired in 2000 after a 20 year career. She recently returned from a trip to Pakistan, where she was part of a delegation of peace activists that joined a march with thousands of Pakistanis against the US/NATO drone attacks.

Imam Abdul Malik Mujahid is the founder of the Muslim Peace Coalition. He is the Chair of the Council for a Parliament of the World's Religions, the premiere interfaith organization in the world. He was one of the initiators of the Coalition Against NATO/G8 War and Poverty Agenda last year. He will speak about what is happening in Pakistan, the Afghan War, and the response there to the drone attacks.

The event is sponsored by the Anti-War Committee of the Committee Against Political Repression (CAPR).

We are hosted by URI-EICHEN Gallery, which this month has a show entitled “Reflections on NATO in the New Chicago”. The artists feature subjects that are anecdotes of the NATO Summit in May.
