We’re firing the show up a little earlier again today. When a force as powerful as Flabby Hoffman is barreling at you, you just step to the side and grab it like a train when rumbles by.
Our friends the Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) sent along an invitation to attend this extremely timely and critical panel on US militarism in the 21st Century.
On Friday, August 2nd, a panel will discuss the context and consequences of our growing military presence and ongoing war theaters; along with how we can organize together to resist this violent and expensive trend. Panelists and attendees will consist of people who have experienced the chaos of it from all sides. Joining the panel will be:
- Christian Parenti, writer of Tropic of Chaos
- Historian and writer Nick Turse – author of “Kill Anything That Moves”
- Michael Rakowitz
- Suraia Suhar
Be a part of this dynamic discussion regarding the past decade and the future of militarism. Please share this invitation on. Full details below.
