    Topic: David Swanson speaking at UMaine

    David Swanson is the co-founder of AfterDowningStreet, a nonpartisan coalition working to expose the lies that create and sustain wars and occupations– and to hold accountable those responsible. He has been a leading voice in the movements to impeach & prosecute Bush and Cheney.

    Swanson served as Press Secretary for Congressman Dennis Kuchinich during his 2004 bid for the Presidency. He is a blogger, and the author of the introduction to “The 35 Articles of Impeachment and the Case for Prosecuting George W. Bush,” written by Dennis Kucinich, and has authored a new book “Daybreak: Undoing the Imperial Presidency and Forming a More Perfect Union” published by Seven Stories Press.

    He spoke at the University of Maine on November 5th, as part of the Marxist-Socialist Studies Thursday Luncheon speaker series–which, it should be noted, included speakers that are not necessarily Marxist-Socialist, or speaking on that topic, and the Schonberger Lecture Committee.

    The event was co-sponsored by Maine Peace Action Comm. and Campus Activities and Events and with support of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, as well as the Peace and Justice Center of Eastern Maine, with assistance from Bruce Gagnon. The talk was recorded by John Greenman and edited by Amy Browne.


    David Swanson spoke again later that day, and audio and video were recorded by Eric T. Olson, and posted on his site, www.peacecast.us peacecast.us/2009/11/david-swanson-in-bangor.html
