Revolutionary Anti-Imperialist Movement to welcome Madeleine Albright to Boulder

Love the art:

Madeleine Albright, the patron saint of UN enforced starvation, will be speaking at the “University” of Kolorado-Boulder on April 16th. RAIM-Denver is leading the charge in opposing this event:

Under Bill Clinton, Albright championed the policy of UN enforced starvation upon the nation of Iraq. On national television she later admitted that the United States, through UN sanctions, killed half a million Iraqi children. In her own words such a cost in human life was, “worth it.”

Coming at a time when activists will shortly be protesting the Democratic National Convention, this appearance by Albright is a excellent opportunity to point out the destructive imperialistic nature of the Democrats.

We call on local activists to mount a protest of this engagement, both as a militant warm-up for the DNC and to let Madeleine Albright and similar war criminals know that their presence in the Denver/Boulder area is opposed. Show up pissed off and ready to be heard. This appearance by Madeleine Albright will not go unchallenged.

Bring signs, puppets, drums, extended middle fingers-whatever you need to make your point.
