Charlie Hebdo - How Should We Respond?

Charlie Hebdo - How Should We Respond?

Obviously anti-war and peace activists, progressives and radicals will condemn the horrible murder of journalists in France but do we need to say more than this ? What role have imperialism, war and racism played in this? Are the 'world leaders' who gathered in Paris really defenders of freedom?

Speakers:
Harry Browne | Journalist
John Molyneux, | IAWM Steering Committee
Mudafar Al Tarwash | Islamic Foundation of Ireland

Location:
The Teachers Club Parnell Square Dublin 2

Interesting programme:

a) French imperialism’s long and atrocious history of colonialism in North Africa and elsewhere, but especially in Algeria where the French Government continue to meddle
b) the French state’s support for the US-led war in Afghanistan, for Israel’s continuous subjugation of and wars against the Palestinians and for its intervention in Mali
c) systematic racism in France itself, especially against Muslims
d) the recent rise of the racist and Islamophobic right in France, with the popularity of the Front National, and in many parts of Europe (Golden Dawn, UKIP, Jobbik etc).
