    Noam Chomsky is to speak in the RDS on the 3rd of April.
    The title of the lecture is ''Solidarity and the Responsibility to Protect''. It will be chaired by Bryan Dobson.
    The lecture is in Partnership with UCD, TCD and Front Line Defenders.

    I think James that a lot of posters on this site are probably having a heart attack at the very thought of that brilliant man Noam being in Dublin let alone going to see him.

    I was actually planning to go to Dublin to see Khenpo-La, but apparently our civil servants have screwed up his visa application, on purpose or just being civil servants, who knows, so if I want to see him I will have to go to the U.K. where apparently the Brits welcome him with open arms. I wonder what harm our civil servants, or even our government mayhaps, think a Buddhist Monk could create? Noam Chomsky is skating on thin ice in present day Ireland. Apparently.

    He's also going to be speaking in UCD on the day before (2 euro if you join a society).

    I cannot post links as I've not posted over 50 posts but if you google the following it will come up: UCD Philosophy Society Inaugural Lecture: "Can Civilization survive really existing capitalism?" by Noam Chomsky

    Might attend both events myself, I missed him last time he was in Dublin like 3 years ago?

    Just booked tickets, thanks for heads up. Would have been very disappointed had I missed him.
