June 11 Day Conference: Afghanistan and the war on terror ten years on
National Events

June 11 Day Conference: Afghanistan and the war on terror ten years on
Conway Hall London. Registration 9.30 am • Tickets £5

Ten years ago the events of 9/11 triggered a series of events which
changed the world profoundly. The war in Afghanistan marked
the start of a decade of war which has resulted in death,
injury and displacement for millions of people across south
Asia and the Middle East. The latest of these wars has now
been launched on Libya, while the first one that in
Afghanistan is taking a growing human and economic toll in
one of the poorest countries in the world.

Stop the War is holding an important conference on Afghanistan
and the war on terror which aims to analyse and explain the
war and its legacies. It will bring together different
elements of the broad movement including journalists,
activists, former soldiers and military families. The
conference is important as an exchange of information and
ideas. But it is also a means of organising future campaigns.
Ten years on, we still have to build a mass movement to
force the US and British governments to withdraw the troops
and to stop future interventions.

Speakers include: Tony Benn • Mehdi Hassan • Tariq Ali •
Lindsey German • US peace campaigner David Swanson • Pankaj
Mishra • Joan Humphries • David Gentleman • George Galloway
Sessions:

• Iraq the aftermath
• Afghanistan and Pakistan - war without end?
• Women and war
• War and resistance: the uprisings in the Middle East
• Imperialism in the 21st century
