To reach Lincoln Center, take the 1 train to Lincoln Center. Alternatively, take the A / B / C / D / 1 to Columbus Circle and walk six blocks.

DETAILS:

Thanks to the NYPL, Saudi Arabia’s ruler “MBS” is holding a bogus event for youth at the library on September 23rd.

Yes, you read that right. This is the same Saudi dictator who has bombed and killed countless children in Yemen. The same guy who murdered Jamal Khashoggi and tortured women’s rights activists like Loujain al-Hathloul.

Join us as we protest the NYPL trustees and demand that they cancel this event. Saudi Arabia’s dictatorship imprisons, tortures, and kills people who dare to speak their minds. The dictator should not be allowed to use his bogus foundation to hold a propaganda event at one of the premier libraries in the U.S.
