Socialist Alternative Public Meeting after the Wikileaks Rally
Wikileaks and why the system breeds endless wars
After the rally, join Socialist Alternative for a Public Meeting discussing some of the revelations of the most important Wikileaks cables, including the 100, 000 War Logs of Iraq and Afghanistan. Wikileaks exposes a rotten system, and shows that our rulers not only have an interest in perpetrating wars around the world, but need to lie to us to justify them. Capitalism is a system of war and inequality, Wikileaks shows that, but why do we live in a world of constant wars, and what can we do about it. All welcome for talk and discussion. Food Available.
