Durham BORDC meeting Saturday at Stanford Warren
The Durham Bill of Rights Defense Committee's June meeting is today at 3pm at the Stanford Warren Library, on Fayetteville St. I think the main agenda items will be the ongoing campaign against the NC connection to rendition of prisoners for torture and tabling at July 4th events.
Also, this is the second day of the Friends of the Durham Library's summer booksale. They have a range of books, most going for $1 dollar hardcover and 50 cents paperback. I found most of my Marxist books in the philosophy section and sometimes in the history section, along with books on the histories of the "socialist bloc" countries.
I think the renovations downtown are also being officially unveiled Saturday, with the festivities starting at 10am. It would be nice if the editors of UNC's Daily Tar Heel and others who are hard on Durham's image would take notice. Though we could use some new trees downtown to replace the ones cut for street work.
If the Grass Roots Impeachment Movement meeting Sunday at 5:30 is open to the public, I assume it is announced at www.impeachbushcheney.net.
