Imperialism on trial: exposing war propaganda

Imperialism on trial: exposing war propaganda

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 31st Jan 2018

Join independent Canadian journalist Eva Bartlett for an evening of discussion about her journalism in Syria, volunteering in Gaza, Palestine, and a recent visit to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Barlett has spent several years living in Gaza since 2008 while volunteering with the International Solidarity Movement, and has visited several times since. From April 2014 she has visited Syria 7 times, visiting cities before and after liberation, including Homs and Aleppo. She provides an opportunity for the ordinary citizens of these countries to have their voices heard and present the reality on the ground.

Bartlett, along with dozens of other indepdendent journalists, has been working for years to counter the daily propaganda put out by supposedly 'neutral' or 'objective' media outlets, who are all determined to tell us who our enemies are and to justify barbaric wars of aggression against dozens of nations.

Come hear and discuss the truth about these countries compared to what 'our' media tells us!

Doors open 6:45pm, meeting starts at 7pm, ending at 9pm.
Admission: £5 waged, £3 unwaged, donations welcome to help cover the costs of the hall.
