The New SPACE Presents

THE POLITICS OF THE ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT

A discussion with Bill Weinberg

Wednesday, September 21 at 7:30 p.m.

Hard-left elements of the anti-war movement affirm the abstract right of the Iraqi people to resist the occupation, but fail to grapple with the realities of Iraq's actually-existing armed resistance. The more moderate elements dodge the question entirely. Yet there is an active left opposition in Iraq that opposes the occupation, the regime it protects, and the jihadi and Baathist "resistance" alike. It is this besieged opposition, under threat of assassination and persecution, which is fighting to keep alive elementary freedoms for women, leading labor struggles against Halliburton and other US contractors, and demanding a secular future for Iraq. For all the incessant factional splits in the US anti-war movement, providing this real,
progressive Iraqi resistance concrete solidarity is not even on the agenda. How can we build an effective anti-war movement which is based on principles of international solidarity, and loan a voice to our natural allies in Iraq? Join us in a discussion with
award-winning journalist Bill Weinberg.

Bill Weinberg is author of _Homage to Chiapas: The New Indigenous Struggles in Mexico_ (Verso 2000), and editor of the on-line _World War 4 Report_ ( http://ww4report.com). He is also co-host of the weekly Moorish Orthodox Radio Crusade ( http://www.morc.info) Tuesdays at midnight on WBAI, 99.5 FM in NYC.
