Tom Morello [also performing], Andy Zermeño, Joan Sekler, Aris & Carolyn Anagnos honored tomorrow at CSPG annual Party Auction

 Hi.  Tom Morello alone should draw great interest, but he joins other important humane activists
in being honored by the greatest accumulation of poster art, and the most active disseminator of
resistance art in the country, if not the world.  That is the Center for the Study of Political Graphics.
This is their annual party, auction and fund raiser, and merits your financial support. Tickets are from $100 down.
