Angela Davis @ Cooper Union FREE!!

Angela Davis @ Cooper Union this Thursday!!!

In her lecture, Davis will link the concept of abolition democracy to questions of global politics. What does it mean that the prison-industrial-complex, often led by U.S. corporations, is expanding globally? What are the connections between the rapid expansion of prison
industries and the military-industrial-complex (as it was named in the 1950s)? What global forces contribute to the exploitation of peoples in different parts of the world? How can feminists and other advocates for democracy connect their movements around the world?

On October 30, we will learn what visions of another possible world?one of freedom, justice and democracy?are offered by these movements and by Davis?s long experience as both an activist and a scholar.
