Two years after the invasion of Iraq, British MP George Galloway and journalist Christopher Hitchens will debate the causes and consequences of the Iraq war at Baruch College in New York City.
Moderated by Amy Goodman.
George Galloway is Respect party MP for Bethnal Green and Bow in East London. He recently electrified the United States with his appearanceat the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations on May 17, when he turned the proceedings into a condemnation of the war in Iraq.
CNN's Wolf Blitzer described Galloway's speech in the Senate as "a
blistering attack on U.S. senators rarely heard" in Washington. His
new book, out in September, is "Mr. Galloway Goes to Washington" (The New Press).
Christopher Hitchens is a widely published polemicist and frequent radio and TV commentator. He is the author of "A Long Short War," "Why
Orwell Matters," "The Trial of Henry Kissinger," and many other books.
The London Observer calls him "One of the most brilliant journalists of our time."
This debate is part of a national tour of the United States by George Galloway, "Stand Up and Be Counted: No to War and Occupation." The tour will culminate in Washington, DC, during the anti-war protests on
September 24th. For a full list of cities and events, please see thewebsite: http://www.mrgallowaygoestowashington.com/.
