Peoria Area Peace Network Update 4.27.11

with one comment

Just wanted to pass on the following info from Mike Perillo of the Peoria Area Peace network. Please note that Jasmine Stucky of the International Solidarity Movement will be speaking at the Forrest Hill United Methodist Church in Peoria on May, 6th at 7pm and the Unitarian Universalist Church in Peoria on May 4th at 7pm.

This Wednesday, union members of American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) plan to hold a community rally at the WEEK/WHOI studios in East Peoria. This rally is in response to the recent proposal by it’s parent company, Granite Broadcasting, which is in a labor dispute with AFTRA. Recently, the Granite Broadcasting presented the Union with its “last, best, and final offer,” which has a lot of takeaways and will bust up the union. There is also concern that there may be the possibility of outsourcing it’s local news coverage. To attend this rally, people will meet at WEEK/WHOI studios on on 2907 Springfield Rd in East Peoria at 5pm, Wednesday April 27. For more info please check out the event group on facebook:

Also, next month Jasmine Stucky will be traveling in from Oregon to talk about her experiences in East Jerusalem. She was there with International Solidarity Movement (ISM) back in 2010, doing work to support Palestinian families from being evicted from their homes and then given to Israeli settlers. Curt Keller will be hosting her at the Forrest Hill United Methodist Church on May, 6th at 7pm and she’ll also speak at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Peoria on May 4th at 7pm.
