Confronting War Ten Years On: STW international conference

International Conference 9 February
10 Years On: Confronting War Today

An international conference in London on Saturday 9 February when speakers from across the world will discuss and plan opposition to continuing and future wars.
Speakers include:
Noam Chomsky (by live video link), Tariq Ali, Owen Jones, Tony Benn, Jemima Khan, Seumas Milne, Mitra Qayoom, Phyllis Bennis, Lindsey German, Jeremy Corbyn MP, Salma Yaqoob, Rafeef Ziadah, Sami Ramadani, Manuel Hassassian
As predicted around the world, the war on Terror has caused catastrophe from Afghanistan and Pakistan through Iraq and the Middle East to Libya, Somalia and beyond. The west has backed brutal Israeli assaults against Palestine and is threatening further intervention in Syria and Iran.
Ten years after the biggest demonstrations in history in February 2003, the warnings of millions have been vindicated. This conference will bring together leading activists and commentators to analyse continuing Western aggression and how to confront it.
