FOSA is commemorating the tenth anniversary of 911 by taking a
comprehensive view of the last ten years. We saw ghastly and cowardly
terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. But since then, the insanity
has only grown. The American war machine has used 911 as an excuse to
invade countries and kill people. The purported 'War on Terror' and
the reaction to it has directly or indirectly affected all of South
Asia, and affected South Asia more than any other part of the globe.
South Asian writers and poets have a distinctive reaction to this
decade of insanity in which tens of thousands of people and almost
three thousand US troops have been killed in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Come and remember 911 with us. We will show short films and have interesting discussion on everything related to 911: the 911 attacks, the War on Terror, the War at Home, the yellow journalism, the Muslim bogeyman, the ailing economy, the suicide bombings in Pakistan, the terrorist attacks in India, etc.
