BK/NY – Saturday, February 20th – Mark Cook at The Base
WHAT: Mark Cook Speaking Event
WHEN: 7:00pm, Saturday, February 20th, 2016
WHERE: The Base – 1302 Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn, New York 11221 (directions below)
NOTE: The Base is on the ground floor, is wheelchair accessible, and has a gender neutral toilet.
COST: FreeOn Saturday, February 20th, join NYC Anarchist Black Cross as we host a talk with Mark Cook. Cook is a former Black Panther, member of the George Jackson Brigade, and political prisoner. Twenty four years in prison could not break his spirit or commitment to Black liberation and Mark Cook is as active an organizer now as ever. This will be an event worth traveling for, as Cook is only speaking on two dates while on the east coast, before heading back to the Pacific Northwest.
