*Oops! we left out a very important event in yesterday's weekly update.*
*It's the Cuba Caravan and it is happening tonight, Sunday July 11 at 7:00

The Caravan makes many stops in the US and Canada on its way to bringing
humanitarian aid to the Cuban people in direct violation of US law and
blockade/embargo of Cuba.
It is organized by Pastors for Peace and sponsored locally by the
Charlottesville Center for Peace & Justice (CCPJ)

WTJU Public "Town Hall" Input Session
Date: 7/12/2010 - 5:30pm
Location: Zehmer Hall 104 Midmont Lane (next to Thomas Aquinas Church)
Sponsor: UVA/Community for WTJU
Join UVA administrators and members of the UVA and Charlottesville community
to discuss the future of WTJU 91.1 FM in a "town hall" setting.
WTJU is undergoing a drastic change, classical music programming may be
eliminated, announcers will no longer have complete freedom to play what
they think is important, and individual shows will be eliminated in favor of
"block programming" with a Roots/Americana focus.
Announcers and community members are very much opposed to these changes, and
hope to have a large and vocal turnout Monday, July 12 at Zehmer Hall.

*"No Impact Man" *(2009) film directed by Laura Gabbert and Justin Schein
Author Colin Beavan, in research for his next book, began the No Impact
Project in November 2006. A newly self-proclaimed environmentalist who could
no longer avoid pointing the finger at himself, Colin leaves behind his
liberal complacency for a vow to make as little environmental impact as
possible for one year. This film provides a front row seat into the familial
strains and strengthened bonds that result from the struggle with this
radical lifestyle change.
