An internationally acclaimed scholar, Michel Chossudovsky writes
extensively on the civilian toll of globalization, the IMF, World Bank,
NATO, US foreign policy and most recently, the wars against Yugoslavia and
Afghanistan.  He is co-editor of the new magazine "Global Outlook." The
premiere issue, called "Stop the War," focuses on the hidden agenda behind
the so-called 'War on Terrorism.'

A long-time journalist and media critic, Barrie Zwicker hosts Vision TV's
weekly "Insight Media File" which recently broadcast a controversial
series of his illustrated commentaries, called "The Great Deception." In
these commentaries, Barrie dares to question the official version of what
really happened on September 11. 
More info:

In their presentations, Barrie and Michel will discuss how the terrorist
attacks of September 11 have been used as a pretext to unleash the
so-called "War on Terrorism" whose real purpose is to project U.S.
military, political and economic control over Central Asia and elsewhere. 

Barrie's controversial new video, "The Great Deception," will also be
shown on April 27.
