Organizer/AuthorJeremy
The revolt against the tyrants has put the word "revolution" on the lips of people everywhere, and reshaped the politics of North Africa, the Middle East and the world.

Protesters in Tunisia and Egypt successfully overthrew their dictators’ decades-long rule, and uprisings have spread far and wide in the region.

Dictators have resorted to murderous repression and military intervention to stop the momentum of the revolts, while foreign countries and the UN, in voting for a No-Fly Zone, have committed to military intervention of which the scale remains to be seen.

Come discuss the implications of the revolts, and what we can do in the US to help push these revolutions forward.

With:

Jess Ghannam, National Coordinating Committee Chair of Al-Awda, the Palestine Right to Return Coalition

Wafa Faris, activist in solidarity with the revolt in Libya

Mohammad Talat, Bay Area organizer, member of the March 9 Movement for Egyptian University Independence.

Imam Khaled Hanoui, Syrian American activist in solidarity with the revolt against Bashar al-Assad.

Matt Swagler, Ph.D. student in African history at Columbia University and analyst for SocialistWorker.org.
