US: Sept 27 - Nov 17, 2008, Haymarket Books-sponsored "Resisting Empire Tour" by acclaimed authors Print E-mail

Here and around the world, people want to see an end to the Iraq War and a change in the reckless direction of U.S. foreign policy.

U.S. aggression has inflicted a humanitarian catastrophe - from Iraq, to Afghanistan, and beyond - with millions of people killed or turned into refugees.

American troops continue to suffer and die, while schools and hospitals fall apart.

A new resistance needs to be built from the ground up.

To build it, we need to hear the stories the mainstream media refuse to tell: the stories of war resisters, unembedded journalists, and activists.

Resisting Empire starts with us.
