I made this a few weeks ago in preparation for protesting an event scheduled to take place at Radio City Music Hall at 8PM tonight.Â The MSG Entertainment 2009 Speakers Series was to host a stimulating night of discussion with war criminals Alberto Gonzalez and John AshcroftÂ alongside Clinton era AG Janet Reno. Seemed like NYC was a strange venue for such an event. But, a fine chance to get near two of the Bush regime’s most wanted with some protest signage and shouting.Â
Enjoy the Myraid descriptions of this strange event here:
FiguredÂ this imageÂ and a selection of classic Gonzo and Ashcroft images would be great signage to confront the folks that thought is was worth between $50 and $180 to hear two of the Bush administration torture program architects speak alongside Janet “Waco and Elian” Reno.Â
We had been wondering who in the world would pay to see that or more specifically, whoÂ would be willing fo give these folks (two war criminals and a total failure) a dime in speakers fees.
Turns out that NYC didn’t go for it. Apparently it just couldn’t seel enough tickets or something.Â The event appears to have competely disappeared from the Spearker Series website, “scrubbed”.Â Almost like they never made the mistake of booking this oddball roadshow in the first place.Â The only way you’d know is the banner image at the top of the schedule page.Â Other than that it appears to have “disappeared” entirely.
