MEDIA WORKERS AGAINST THE WAR (MWAW)
Media Workers Against the War
Public meeting: Unheard voices: opposition to the war in the USA
with Michael Letwin, representing New York City Labor Against the War.
Monday, 19 November
7:30pm University of London Union Malet Street London WC1
Against a backdrop of monolithic pro-war media coverage, an anti-war movement has taken shape in the United States. Michael Letwin, of NYC Labor Against the War, will report from ‘ground zero’ on dissent in the USA. As a New Yorker and a public sector trades unionist, he will explain why he rejects the war being made in his name, and its impact on civil liberties, racism and the media. ?
Michael Letwin is in London as a representative of NYC LAW, a coalition of New York area trades unionists campaigning against the US-led war in Afghanistan. [See http://www.mwaw.org for more details]. He is also the elected president of the UAW local representing legal aid attorneys in New York, although he is not visiting London in that capacity.
Plenty of time for questions from the floor.
Please circulate this notice to all who might be interested.
