True Costs of Petroleum: Oil, War and Resistance
Thursday, November 07, 2002
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Ecology Center, 2530 San Pablo @Dwight, Berkeley
What motivates the US Government to advocate for a “first strike” policy against Iraq that could lead to a protracted, expensive, and devastating war? How does the fact that Iraq possesses the second largest oil reserves in the world shape the US desire for “regime change?” From the Middle East to Africa, Latin America and Asia, petroleum corporations and their interests are deeply intertwined with US military policy and war. Join us for a panel discussion with leading activists as they talk about oil, war and resistance in Iraq, Nigeria, Colombia, Ecuador and the Philippines. Featuring Gopal Dayaneni from Project Underground, Leila Salazar from Amazon Watch, Eyad Kishawi from the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, and Maia Coladonato from the Filipino/American Coalition for Environmental Solutions. This is the kick-off event for the True Costs of Petroleum series which will uncover the consequences of petroleum dependency and the movements for just and sustainable alternatives. Cost: Free.
