    Ecuador’s Peaceful Revolution:
    Epochal Change or More of the Same
    Featuring Author, Autoworker, Activist, and Educator Phillip Bannowsky
    Sponsored by the Phoenix Community in Delaware, Inc.
    Sunday, September 21, 2008, 7:00 p.m.
    New Ark United Church of Christ Wells Hall, 300 E. Main Street, Newark, Delaware
    $5 donation requested. Coffee and dessert will be served.

    Newark, September 9, 2008—Author, autoworker, activist, and educator Phillip Bannowsky will report on how Ecuador’s Indigenous and social movements are trying to bring fundamental change to their country. With photos, music, and monologue, Bannowsky will address whether Ecuador can withstand pressure from the North and the weight of the past to accomplish a revolutionary transformation. Entitled “Ecuador’s Peaceful Revolution: Epochal Change or More of the Same,” the presentation will take place Sunday, September 21, at 7 p.m. at the New Ark United Church of Christ Wells Hall in Newark.

    Bannowsky spent five weeks in Ecuador this summer, investigating the partnership and tensions between the new president Rafael Correa and the popular forces that put him in power. In the past decade, these forces have compelled the resignation of three presidents and now dominate the constitutional assembly, whose work will be either approved or rejected by Ecuadorian voters September 28. These popular forces oppose “neoliberalism,” free market policies imposed by the World Bank and the U. S., and espouse what they call “Socialism in the Twenty-First Century,” a democratic form based on participatory democracy and possibilities opened by new technology.

    Ecuador is one of nine Latin American countries veering left from the U. S. orbit in recent years.

    Phillip Bannowsky is author of The Mother Earth Inn, a novel about a North American who works among Ecuador’s Indigenous during the Clinton years and struggles to disentangle himself from neoliberalism. Bannowsky has reported on Ecuador’s Indigenous and social movements for NACLA Report on the Americans and for Delawarehispanic.com. He is also is a retired autoworker and an international educator, having taught English in both Ecuador and Lebanon. Currently he is an English instructor at the University of Delaware and Director of an English Study Abroad program in Ecuador for the University.

    The New Ark United Church of Christ Wells Hall is at 300 E. Main Street in Newark. Coffee and dessert will be served and a $5 donation is requested.

    The Phoenix Community in Delaware, Inc. is an ecumenical ministry with a global perspective since 1954.

      Are you interested in having a presentation on the Impact of the gambling tsunami which we are experiencing, and how more and more gambling, (more casinos, etc) will have an incredibly negative impact on the manufacturing community, and on all kinds of businesses? I don’t know if this is the kind of topic you want discussed; but, it certainly is relevant to the business community.

      My credentials: Director of the Compulsive Gambling Institute/ former NYPD detective/ former department chairman at three colleges and two universities. I have been published in Industry Week Magazine/ Nation’s Business/ Wall Street Journal/ Philadelphia Business Journal/ TV Guide/ Ledger Newspaper/ Human Resourcs Professional Magazine/ and about 30 others.

      I have also been on Oprah/ Larry King/ Good Morning America (twice), Maury Povich/ CNN and the History Channel….always about the relationship between gambling and the business community. As I said, I don’t know if you are interested in such a topic, but if you are, I’m willing to participate. Thank you,
