Using Racism to Sell War: The West vs Islam?

Filed under: ISO Events — Barnard-Columbia ISO @ 11:55 am

In the summer of 2006 Bush declared that “Islamic Fascism” is the biggest threat facing the U.S. today. In October this year, David Horowitz will tour campuses with his “Islamofascism Awareness Week”. From the hysteria surrounding Ahmadinejad’s NYC visit to a spike in horrific hate crimes, the vilification of Arabs and Muslims is on the rise. Islamophobia provides a justification for the U.S.’ ongoing wars and must be opposed at every chance. Come be a part of a discussion about the roots of this racist “clash of civilizations” theory and what we can do to challenge it.

Why You Should Be a Socialist!

Filed under: ISO Events — Barnard-Columbia ISO @ 3:03 am

Why won’t the Bush administration admit defeat in Iraq?
Why is there money for war and prisons, but not for universal health care, levees, and bridges?
Why hasn’t the Democratic congress cut off war funding?
Is there an alternative to a world of war, poverty, and racism?
How could we get there?
After the collapse of Stalinism, is socialism possible?
Come discuss these questions and how you can be a part of a movement to transform the world we live in!
