Libya – Uprisings in the Middle East and the Role of the US

Presentations and Discussion with:

Larry Everest, Revolution correspondent and author, Oil, Power & Empire: Iraq and the U.S. Global Agenda

Prof. Stephen Zunes, Chair of Middle Eastern Studies, University of San Francisco, author of Western Sahara: War, Nationalism, and Conflict Irresolution

The uprising in Libya is being met with brutal force by the Muammar Qaddafi regime, as people continue to rise up against reactionary regimes across the region. The U.S. and other world powers are condemning Qadaffi and debating military intervention, as they maneuver to contain the waves of rebellion and maintain control. What is the nature and history of the Qadaffi regime and its relationship to imperialism? What’s behind this unprecedented upheaval? What role is the U.S. playing?
