All those who oppose racism, anti-Semitism, and U.S. domination of other countries are invited to participate in a planning meeting for a protest. The protest planning meeting is 6 PM tomorrow (Thursday) at Multi-Kulti, 1000 N. Milwaukee Avenue, 4th floor.
The Thursday, March 20th event Kissinger is speaking at is organized by the Illinois Holocaust Museum which, given Kissinger's role in the murder of millions around the world, doesn't seem to "get it" about the phrase "Never Again!"
Among Kissinger's most infamous acts was his promotion of a brutal coup in Chile on September 11, 1973 — their "9/11" — which killed their democratically-elected president, murdered and tortured 10s of thousands more, and scarred that nation for at least a generation.
“I don't see why we need to stand by and watch a country go communist due to the irresponsibility of its people," he said. "The issues are much too important for the Chilean voters to be left to decide for themselves.”
And of course he presided over the final, most brutal years of United States' war on Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, which killed over 3 million people in those countries and left a legacy of birth defects, disease and environmental degradation which continues to this day.
Lesser known "humanitarian" acts by Kissinger include:
** Giving U.S. support to the 1965 coup in Indonesia, where the CIA assisted in "naming names" of opposition activists, promoting the deaths of half a million people.
** Supporting the assassinations of heads of government in South Vietnam, Congo, Cuba, Cyprus, and probably several other countries.
** Promoting the notorious "Operation Condor," a program of murder, torture and "disappearances" in Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay
Members of law enforcement, the Cook County State's Attorney's Office and their agents are not welcome at tomorrow night's planning meeting.
