A Summer Workshop on Globalization by Anti-Capitalist Action Liberation Through Education

The workshops will take place once a week, every Tuesday 5-7 p.m. at the old school building behind St. Francis Church, 330 12th and Pine (2 blocks north of Stark St.) Look for signs directing you to the room the in which the class will take place.
