Khury Petersen- Smith –
“‘Resisting Four More Years’ of US empire”
Donald Trump is entering the White House with a racist nationalism, a naked xenophobia, and a cavalier attitude toward using military violence–including nuclear weapons. We can expect more belligerence abroad and racism here from his administration. But with the US at war since its creation, and the eight-year expansion of war during the Obama Administration, US violence will not begin with Trump. Khury Peterson-Smith will discuss the US empire historically and today, and why it goes far beyond the question of who occupies the White House. He will also discuss resistance to empire, past, present, and future.
Khury Petersen-Smith is an activist and geographer who lives in Boston. He is a postdoctoral scholar at Tufts University, where he studies empire. Khury is an activist in the International Socialist Organization and has written and organized particularly on US empire, solidarity with the Palestinian struggle, and Black liberation. He co-organized the 2015 Black-Palestine Solidarity Statement, which was signed by over 1,100 Black scholars, activists, and artists.

A recent article published in the New Yorker caught the attention of one of our members: “Break-In at Y-12: How a handful of pacifists and nuns exposed the vulnerability of America’s nuclear-weapons sites.” We’d like to share it with you below, just click on the image to read it.
The congregation of the Community Church of Boston strives to be a wise steward of both financial and natural resources. We are working together with HEET (Home Energy Efficiency Team) to become more energy efficient, which will keep the congregation more comfortable, lower our energy bills and improve the energy efficiency of our building.
