This is a peoples’ conference. It is free and open to all. For each of the
last 9 years about 350 engaging scholars, students, activists, writers,
community and cultural workers, primarily concerned peoples of the global
south, resident in the imperial north, have found it informative,
stimulating, and important, and look forward to attending. To help us
arrange enough seating to accommodate everyone please register through
 well ahead of the date so we can also cater for
enough food for everyone. There is no registration fee. Lunch will be
provided at no cost.

Our speakers will address the terrifying racist murderous assault and
plunder being practiced by the capitalist supremacist aggressive West and
their allies against Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia and the rest of Africa,
as well as the state deployment of terror in Colombia. Who are the global
terrorists? Who are the democracy-toting mass murderers? Who stands to
gain? And at what loss? What are the lies being circulated as truth?

This will be a full intense involving day with much more to learn than the
deceptions the mainstream capitalist press continues to present to the
world as truth.
