Rachel Corrie Art Dedication October 23, 5 p.m. at The Evergreen State College.(Olympia, Wash.)  Former Evergreen student Rachel Corrie’s commitment to peace will be recognized in the dedication of an artwork on the third floor of the College Activities Building on the Olympia campus at 5 p.m. October 23.

The sculpture, by international artist and Evergreen graduate Ross Matteson, is a bronze and polished steel representation of a dove on the tip of a pyramid, entitled “Reflecting on Peace and Justice.”  It is a gift to the College from the Rachel Corrie Foundation for Peace and Justice, with contributions from faculty, staff, students and alumni.

Corrie was killed by an Israeli military bulldozer while attempting to prevent the demolition of a Palestinian home in Gaza in March 2003.  She is recognized around the world for her writings, courage and ideals.

Evergreen Provost Michael Zimmerman will accept the artwork on behalf of the College in recognition of Corrie’s time as a student at Evergreen, and her dedication to peace.

→We normally have OMJP meetings on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month at the POWER office.  Because of this dedication, at our last meeting, we decide to have this Wednesday’s meeting, October 23 at Evergreen on the third floor of the CAB Building.  The meeting will start at the regular time of 6:30, where we will discuss our most recent and future activities.  If you can’t come to the 5PM dedication, please come to the 6:30 meeting and you will still be able to see the sculpture.  If you take a bus to Evergreen, there will be enough of us with cars to get you home after the meeting.  Hope to see you at 5 or 6:30.

RAY MCGOVERN, FORMER CIA OFFICIAL, TO SPEAK AT EVERGREEN AND OLYMPIA

 

“THE NATIONAL SECURITY STATE AND THE DRIVE TO WAR”

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1 8, 2013

→12:30-2PM, SEMINAR 2, B1105, TESC

→7-9PM AT OLYMPIA COMMUNITY CENTER, 222 Columbia St. NW, Room 103

 Ray McGovern came to Washington in the early Sixties as an Army infantry/intelligence officer and then served as a CIA analyst from the administration of John F. Kennedy to that of George H. W. Bush. Ray’s duties included chairing National Intelligence Estimates and preparing the President’s Daily Brief, which he briefed one-on-one to President Ronald Reagan’s most senior national security advisers from 1981 to 1985.

In January 2003, Ray helped create Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) to expose the way intelligence was being falsified to “justify” war on Iraq.

As an act of conscience, on March 2, 2006 Ray returned the Intelligence Commendation Medallion given him at retirement for “especially meritorious service,” explaining, “I do not want to be associated, however remotely, with an agency engaged in torture.”

Ray’s opinion pieces have appeared in many leading newspapers in the US and abroad.  His Web site writings are usually posted first on consortiumnews.com as well as here on raymcgovern.com, and they are usually then cross-posted widely on other Web sites.  Ray has appeared on The Newshour, C-Span’s Washington Journal, CNN, Aljazeera, RT, PressTV and numerous other TV & radio programs and documentaries. (His favorite gig was debating former CIA Director James Wollsey on Charlie Rose on Aug. 20, 2004.)  Ray has also addressed a wide variety of audiences in the U.S. and abroad.

 From 6:30 to 7 we will have our normal business to plan our bringing in 
→ex-CIA Ray McGovern on October 18 in downtown Olympia and at Evergreen.  PLEASE SAVE THAT DATE-MORE INFORMATION WILL BE COMING.
IMPORTANT-At 7pm we will shift our focus to help with organizing around the Rafah Solidarity Mural downtown at Capitol and State.  This will be in conjunction with the Rachel Corrie Foundation.  We want to be proactive in planning with the city about any future with the building and the parking lot.
Cindy Corrie and Josh Elliot will be giving a brief update on what has been happening with the City of Olympia and the Mural space.  They will answer any questions about groups’ participation up-to-now with the Mural Project.  We’d also like to have a nice chunk of time to discuss moving forward with the Mural Project on some ‘Place-making’ ideas we have been thinking about between the Rachel Corrie Foundation and the Olympia-Rafah Solidarity Mural Project.
