Dear Friend of the Campaign for Peace and Democracy,

     We are writing to inform you of three important upcoming New York City events about Greece's historic January 25 elections, and to alert you to save the date for the February 6 forum "After the Greek Elections: The Future of Austerity in Greece, Europe and Beyond," sponsored by CPD and co-sponsored by a number of groups and publications. Details are below.

     Several of these events may be videotaped, but if you are going to be in the New York City area we hope you can come and join your friends and colleagues to discuss these urgent and exciting developments together.

In peace and solidarity,
Joanne            Tom
