[OPIRG-EVENTS] COAT mtg Ottawa TuesFeb26 to plan Chossudovsky/Zwicker event

Please join us at the next Planning Meeting of the

Coalition to Oppose the Arms Trade (COAT) 

When:  Tuesday, February 26, 2002, 7:30 pm.

Where: 91A Fourth Ave. (downstairs) 
       (just east of Bank St, in the Glebe, Ottawa)
       [at the Society of Friends (Quaker) Meeting House]

To be discussed: 
Organizing an event in late April.  Can you help us make this a success?  Two speakers have agreed to participate in late April:

Michel is an economics professor at U. of Ottawa who has written extensively on globalization, the IMF, World Bank, NATO, US foreign policy and particularly, the wars against Yugoslavia and Afghanistan.  He is very well known internationally as a scholar on these issues. He spoke at our event on Oct 6 and his was the workshop that was best attended. He has just launched a new magazine called "Global Outlook."  The "premiere "Stop the War" issue focusses on the hidden agenda behind the so-called 'War on Terrorism'"

Barrie is the Toronto-based producer of "Insight MediaFile," a show every week on Vision TV.  He is a long-time media critic and journalist who's been doing some courageous broadcasting on Vision TV, re: "What Really Happened on Sept 11?"  His 5-8 minute commentaries on "The Great Deception" have raised some disturbing questions about whether there was some US gov't involvement in those terrorist attacks. Barrie would like to show a video that packages all of his Vision TV commentaries into one documentary. It's probably about 30-40 minutes long.

The general theme of the April event will be something like:
"How the Sept 11 attacks have been used as a pretext to expand and enforce US control over Central Asia, and the geopolitical importance of that region in US efforts to consolidate its global domination." (!)  Oil is obviously very important to this theme.

Barrie and Michel are also willing to participate in another related event (around that same time, while Barrie's in town), perhaps a workshop or some kind of a discussion group.  This could be be a smaller affair especially designed for activists and researchers who keen to discuss (a) media issues related to the war and/or (b) the "What really happened on Sept 11" stuff.  


If you want to help out, please join us at the COAT meeting on Tuesday, February 26, 2002, 7:30 pm. at 91A Fourth Ave., Ottawa.
