Stop Signs: Cars and Capitalism on the Road to Economic, Social and
Ecological Decay
Book Launch & Discussion with authors Yves Engler and Bianca Mugyenyi

Thursday, June 2nd
6:30 P.M.
Elliot Park Recreation Center
1000 14th ST E

Presented by the 5th CD Green Party of Minnesota

In North America, human beings have become enthralled by the automobile: A
quarter of our working lives are spent paying for them; communities fight
each other for the right to build more of them; our cities have been torn
down, remade and planned with their needs as the overriding concern; wars
are fought to keep their fuel tanks filled; songs are written to praise
them; cathedrals are built to worship them.

In Stop Signs: Cars and Capitalism on the Road to Economic, Social and
Ecological Decay, authors Bianca Mugyenyi and Yves Engler argue that the
automobile's ascendance is inextricably linked to capitalism and involved
corporate malfeasance, political intrigue, backroom payoffs, media
manipulation, racism, academic corruption, third world coups, secret
armies, environmental destruction and war. An anti-car, road-trip story,
Stop Signs is a must-read for all those who wish to escape the clutches of
auto domination.

"Mugyenyi and Engler's Stop Signs is at one and the same time an
entertaining, fact-filled anthropological tour of the land of Homo
Automomotivis, and the first all-out global ecological critique of the
American automobile addiction. Not since Jane Holtz Kay's Asphalt Nation
has a book appeared that so clearly exposed the auto-irrationality of the
most car-dependent country on earth." --John Bellamy Foster, editor of
Monthly Review and co-author, The Ecological Rift

Yves Engler has been dubbed "one of the most important voices on the
Canadian Left today" (Briarpatch magazine) and "in the mould of I. F.
Stone" (Globe and Mail). His four previous books have been praised by Noam
Chomsky, Naomi Klein, William Blum and many others.

Bianca Mugyenyi was born in Uganda and spent parts of her youth in
Swaziland, Kenya and England. She is the former chair of the Canadian
Federation of Students - Quebec and has been heavily involved in
campaigns ranging from the struggle for accessible education and
reproductive rights to justice for missing and murdered indigenous
women in Canada. She currently coordinates campaigns and programming
at Concordia's Centre for Gender Advocacy.

Subject: Palestine film 6.02 7pm

Movie Night:  Frontiers of Dreams & Fears
Thursday, June 2nd @ 7pm @ Walker Library, Hennepin & Lagoon, Minneapolis.

This movie shows a group of Palestinian children confronting the daily
realities of growing up in refugee camps.  Their hopes, fears and growing
activism reflect a new generation of Palestinians living in exile. The
Anti-War Committee is being investigated by the FBI for its support of the
Union of Palestinian Women's Committee's kindergartens.  Come learn more
about the situation for children in Palestine and why the AWC wanted to
help these children surviving and struggling under occupation.  Organized
by the AWC.
