The Coalition for Peace Action Pennsylvania Chapter is co-sponsoring Divest Philly from the War Machine's book talk on Wednesday. June 26, at 7 PM, at Wooden Shoe Books, 704 South St, Philly. 

This is a free book talk event with Philly-based author Roy Eidelson about his book, Political Mind Games: How the 1% Manipulate Our Understanding of What's Happening, What's Right, and What's Possible.

Roy explains how we can recognize - and counter - the manipulative appeals that the 1% use to advance their self-serving agenda. Offering timely examples drawn from the realms of militarism, the war economy, climate change, and more, Roy shows why understanding and debunking the 1%'s mind games is an urgent matter for anyone interested in building a more decent society. 

In addition to Roy's talk, the event will feature a discussion of the newly forming Divest Philly from the War Machine Coalition & opportunities for getting involved! Divest Philly from the War Machine is a network of groups working to divest public and private funds in Philly from weapons manufacturers, military contractors, and war profiteers.
