Bushra Khaliq is a leading member of the Labor Party of Pakistan.

She will discuss the political and economic crises wracking Pakistan as well as the impact of the U.S. occupation of Afghanistan and increasing intervention in Pakistan. While the American media portrays the only political opposition in Pakistan as based on the Taliban and other religiously-based organizations, Pakistan also boasts a vibrant labor movement and a broad struggle for women’s rights. Come hear a first-hand account from the frontlines for social justice in Pakistan.

This event is a special opening session for the West Coast Socialism Conference.

$10 admission at the door. Seating is limited so pre-register at http://www.socialismconference.org/oakland. Select the “single session” option, or register for any larger part of the conference, to guarantee your seat.
