WOMEN'S PEACE DAY 2004 -The Impact of War and Militarization on Women in Asia
7 - 10 p.m.
SF Women's Building
3543 18th St
San Francisco CA

Women are often the most affected and least talked about victims of
war.  Find out about  women and militarism in Okinawa, Korea and the
Philippines.  Join us for an evening of discussion and culture.
Highlights include:  SPAM Iron Chef (a Spam  cook-off to remind us of
the U.S. military's legacy in  Asia) and a keynote speech by author,
journalist and human rights activist Ninotchka Rosca.

An added treat will be the launching of a book co-authored by Ms.
Rosca along with Professor Jose Maria Sison.  Jose Ma. Sison is known
for having re-established the Communist Party of the Philippines, one
of the 17 organizations under the National Democratic Front of the
Philippines (NDFP).  Entitled "Jose Ma. Sison:  At Home in the
World," the book features a formidable introduction by Ninotchka
Rosca, a series of conversations between her and Prof. Sison,
photographs cataloguing highlights of Prof. Sison's life, and five
poems by Prof. Sison chosen to provide the emotive aspect to what is
being discussed in the conversations.

Organized by the Bay Area Women's Initiative for Peace and Justice in
Asia:  GABRIELA Network, Korea Solidarity Committee (KSC), Nikkeis
for Peace and Justice, Asian Pacific Islander Coalition Against War
