War Criminal Madeleine Albright is Not Welcome to Park Slope!
Demand cancellation of an event promoting war.

PROTEST - Tuesday, 6:30pm April 10, 2018
Gather at Community Bookstore, 143 7th Ave.
March to Albright’s speaking event: 274 Garfield Place & 8th Ave. Brooklyn

As the current U.S. government wages war in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Libya and threatens war in Korea, Iran and even Russia, the people here must stand against any war promotion or provocation.

Community Bookstore in Park Slope, Brooklyn, has invited Madeleine Albright to promote her new book at Congregation Beth Elohim on Tuesday, April 10, at 7:30 pm.

Madeleine Albright is opening a national speaking tour to oppose Trump by promoting new U.S. wars and threatening Russia, China, Venezuela, Syria and Iran.

When new U.S. wars are a daily ominous threat, should the genocide of over a million people of Iraq be ignored in the affluent neighborhood of Park Slope? It is up to you to decide.

These are well-known facts:

Madeleine Albright, who now poses as the opposition to the criminal Trump administration, was Secretary of State, serving Bill Clinton. She publicly defended policies that caused countless deaths and suffering around the globe, including the continuation of genocidal sanctions on Iraq that killed more than 500,000 children.

This is Secretary of State Madeleine Albright’s exchange with Lesley Stahl on national TV:
Lesley Stahl on U.S. sanctions against Iraq: We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?
Secretary of State Madeleine Albright’ response: I think this is a very hard choice, but the price–we think the price is worth it.

Madeleine Albright also helped orchestrate the sanctions and the 78 days of the bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999. Albright promoted the sanctions and threats on Iran and Korea.

Never Forget! Protesting Albright means also protesting Trump’s moves toward war.

Call for action:
For years at speaking events and graduation ceremonies tens of thousands of people have denounced Madeleine Albright as a War Criminal. Madeleine Albright is NOT welcome in Brooklyn.
