CALL: 949-436-1188 EMAIL: WEBSITE: Volunteers are needed, Please contact us if you are able to help out!! "Freedom is what we make of it. If we stand against repression, authority and illegitimate structures, we are expanding the domain of freedom and that's what freedom will be. That's what we create; there is nothing to define in words." -- Noam Chomsky The "Many Faces of War" conference, was created by POWER(People Opposing War, Empires and Rulers) and many other organizations, as a direct response to educate and empower people to make informed decisions about the many different war's being waged all over the world. The three-day conference is totally FREE of charge, each night of the conference we will hold a variety of musical benefit shows, all $$$ that is made will go towards groups participating in the conference, and Arts In Action. The conference is an anarchist/anti-authoritarian perspective on war, it will focus on growing political repression due to war, racism, immigration, patriotism, community organizing, anarchist history, and the overall effect that war has on regular people, it will also be a time that we are able to come together and speak to one another on what ordinary people can do to promote an anti-war and anti-authoritarian political movement together, within their own community. We want a better world, one without hierarchy, imperialists, or empires. We want a new world, and we are hoping that through education and action we are able to achieve that common goal that binds us all together.
