NYC: Bill Weinberg to speak on Iraq’s civil resistance

On Tuesday, February 14, at 7:30 PM, the Libertarian Book Club’s Anarchist Forum will present Bill Weinberg, host of the WBAI program “The Moorish Orthodox Radio Crusade” and creator of the World War 4 Report website, where important but seldom-seen news from around the world can be found. Weinberg will provide a detailed picture of the almost never-discussed secular left opposition in Iraq. These are the Iraqis that oppose the U.S. occupation, the torture state it protects, and the jihadi insurgents alike. He will discuss how we can lend solidarity to the trade unions, women’s rights groups, and community organizations under siege in Iraq. He will also be reporting back on the recent conference in Tokyo in solidarity with the Iraqi Freedom Congress, and showing a new DVD on the organization’s work.

After the presentation Bill will have an extensive open discussion with the audience.

The event will take place at the Brecht Forum, 451 West Street, Manhattan (between Bank and Bethune streets near the Hudson River) (212-242-4201). Take an A, C, E, or L train to the 14th Street and 8th Avenue subway stop or take a 1, 2, or 3 train to the 14th Street and 7th Avenue stop.

Everybody is welcome and invited to come and to have their say. Admission is free for the presentation, but a contribution to aid the LBC is suggested. If you have questions, contact the LBC /Anarchist Forum, 212-979-8353
