Urban Action 7/22 

This week's calls to action include the following events and activities. All are free and open to the public, unless otherwise noted.

Anti-drone vigil

The Upstate Coalition to Ground the Drones and End the Wars will hold "Drones Fly, Children Die: a Vigil of Compassion for the Civilian Victims of Weaponized Terrorism," on Sunday, July 26. The vigil will be held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. near the Hancock Field Air National Guard Base main entrance, 6001 East Molloy Road, in DeWitt. Activists will discuss recent trips to Iraq where they met with refugees of the US-led wars in the region. The vigil will be followed by a potluck lunch at Slocum House, 208 Slocum Avenue, Syracuse. Information: Peg Gefell, at (585) 313-6674. Carpooling: Judy Bello, Judith@papillonweb.net.

Memoir is subject of discussion

The Moving Beyond Racism Book Group will discuss "Fresh Off the Boat" at 7 p.m. on Monday, August 3. The memoir by Eddie Huang tells of a Taiwanese immigrant family's assimilation into mainstream US culture. Huang first caught the public's attention in New York City's East Village, where he became a versatile cook and standup comic. His memoir was recently made into a television comedy sitcom of the same name. The event will be held at Barnes and Noble, Pittsford Plaza. It isn't necessary to have read the book prior to coming to the meeting.
