The Bush Administration’s war and occupation in Iraq has unleashed a far more
aggressive drive for a new US Empire. It has ushered in a more unstable and
dangerous world.
Yet it has also ushered in a worldwide resistance.
In Iraq, US forces are being met with a resistance which even the CIA is
being forced to admit has the support of the vast majority of ordinary
Iraqis. Within the military and among veterans, a small but powerful
resistance is building to Bush’s occupation.
When Bush travels to London, he will be met by tens of thousands of
protestors. In Miami, thousands of protesters are converging to stop
the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA).
Once thought unassailable, today Bush is being met by resistance from all
sides.
But many questions remain: How can these struggles be more closely joined?
How can we build international links between them? And what is the goal of
these struggles? How can Bush be stopped? Join us for a rare chance to
discuss these questions and more with a renowned panel of international
activists.
