Noam Chomsky at First Parish

The Social Justice Committee at First Parish, along with the Social Justice League of Bridgewater State University, are hosting a talk by Noam Chomsky on February 24, 5-8pm at First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church, 50 School St. Bridgewater, MA.

Professor Chomsky's talk will focus on the people-centered movements happening in Egypt and the surrounding region, along with general information about social justice and a people-centered sustainable society.

Tickets will be available at the door. A $15 donation, or $5 for students (no student ID required), is suggested. All proceeds go to the church's Social Justice Committee for its projects locally and globally.

Professor Chomsky has taught at MIT for 56 yrs. He has authored over 100 books and is the most quoted person in the world. His propaganda model of the media is the definitive work on the topic. He is considered the "Einstein" of linguistics having shown that the acquisition of language is due to an unpacking of a genetically pre-programmed system. He is also the world's leading critique of the unjust use of power.
