Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana, radical actor/activist Martin Sheen and Emira Woods of – the Washington DC based Institute for Policy Studies, are all invited guest speakers at the leftist Africa Faith And Justice’s 30th Anniversary, March 1, 2013 through March 3, 2013, University of Notre Dame, South Bend, Indiana.

IPS, active since the 1960s, has infiltrated every Democratic Administration since Jimmy Carter. President Barack Obama was a trustee of an IPS “partner” organization, Demos, as was his communist “Green Jobs Czar” Van Jones. Both outgoing US Secretary of defense Leon Panetta and incoming Sec. Chuck Hagel also have IPS ties.
