      VOICES RISING: Critical Dialogue in Times of War

      Thursday February 6, 2003 6pm to 9pm
      San Jose State University
      Umhunum Room, 3rd Floor Student Union

      Voices Rising once again seeks to inform and unite the
      San Jose State
      campus community through cultural entertainment and
      critical
      perspectives of U.S. policy. In this grave time of
      U.S. military action, growing
      resistance, and discontent with the Bush
      administration, Voices Rising
      provides an informative dissent as students and
      community sort through
      current issues. What are the real motives behind US
      military action
      towards Iraq? How has the Patriot act changed our
      rights and privacy?
      What will be consequences of waging war?

      Find answers to these questions and more. Attend
      Voices Rising,
      Thursday, February 6th at 6pm in the Student Union
      Umhunum room. Featured
