We Are Everywhere was described by Canadian writer Naomi Klein as "...the first book to truly capture and embody the exuberant creativity and radical intellect of the protest movements." Jennifer Whitney and Andrew Stern, two of the books producers on a national tour, present a multimedia performance; Stern, just back from Iraq, will present hard-hitting images from the streets of Baghdad; A video of hopeful resistance movements around the world; An exhibition of beautiful photos and illustrative quotations from their book; and a discussion of the current situation in Iraq and the connections between the anti-war movements and the global anticapitalist movements.
