Arab 

Spring


Libyan Winter



 

                        As millions of people across the Middle East and
North Africa fight for freedom against tyrannical regimes, US warplanes bomb
Libya with the stated aim of protecting civilians. But what are the real
aims of the government's intervention? How do they relate to its wars and
other policies in the Middle East? And what can those of us inspired by the
democratic uprisings do to help? 

 

            At 7 pm on Thursday, July 7, Boston UNAC is bringing speaker,
educator and Counterpunch contributor Vijay Prashad to speak to these
questions. Dr. Prashad is professor and director of international studies at
Trinity College, the author most recently of The Darker Nations: A People's
History of the Third World (winner of the Muzaffar Ahmed Book Prize for
2009), and the forthcoming co-edited collection Dispatches from Pakistan. He
is soon to publish (in early 2012) The Poorer Nations: A Possible History of
the Global South. A $5 donation is encouraged but all are welcome.
