| Dear EmailNation Subscriber,
|
| Last week, The Nation Institute staged a public Town Hall meeting on
civil
| liberties after September 11th at the Society for Ethical Cultures in
New
| York City.
|
| We're thrilled to report that more than 1,000 people turned out to
hear a
| lively discussion with Molly Ivins, Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., Nadine
| Strossen, Hussein Ibish and Elaine Jones, moderated by Phil Donahue,
and
| enriched by a series of audience questions. Though we hated to turn
people
| away, we took the tremendous response as an encouraging sign that many
in
| this country are deeply concerned with the direction that the US war
on
| terrorism has taken.
|
| And we're delighted to announce that all those who missed the
proceedings
| live can see the event in its entirety this Saturday evening, March 9,
on
| CSPAN during the American Perspectives block, which begins at 8pm.
|
| Our event directly follows a speech from that morning by Donald
Rumsfeld
| (a curious lead-in) so they can't tell us exactly when it will begin.
But
| CSPAN predicts that we should air at approximately 9pm if Rumsfeld
doesn't
| speak much longer than expected. (And you can tune it at 8 for a
| minute-to-minute schedule.)

| THE NATION INSTITUTE PRESENTS:
| CIVIL LIBERTIES AFTER SEPTEMBER 11
| MARCH 9, CSPAN'S AMERICAN PERSPECTIVES, 9:00pm EST
