Branch meeting – "What will it take to stop terrorism?"

Facebook Event

In the last month, the world has witnessed terrorist attacks on civilians in Bamako, Beirut and Paris.

As those who’ve lost loved ones grieve, it is shameful that these attacks are being used by politicians in imperialist countries like Australia, the U.S. and France as an excuse to call for slamming the doors on refugees who are desperately fleeing violence and repression in their own countries. We must do everything we can to stop our governments from using terrorism and the fear of terrorism as an excuse to clamp down on civil liberties and peddle anti-Muslim and racist hysteria. We also need to confront those far right forces which aim to cohere a fascist movement to stop them recruiting from the climate created by mainstream politicians. It needs to be more widely understood that imperialist wars and the policies pursued by the U.S. and its allies, including Australia, are directly responsible for much of the tragedy in the Middle East.

Take part in a round table discussion based on a selection of reading including:
Steve Strauss, The ISIS crisis, made by imperialism
Monica Hill, Fire in the Middle East: Counterrevolution takes heavy toll
Leon Trotsky, Why Marxists Oppose Individual Terrorism

Dinner will be served at 6:30 pm for an $8.50 donation and the meeting will start at 7 pm.

The meeting will be held at Solidarity Salon (address and travel information is above).
