The flames of resistance have been burning brightly in the Middle East ever since Mohamed Bouazizi set himself alight in Tunisia on 17th December 2010.

The popular revolts which have followed have driven the Western-backed dictators Ben Ali in Tunisia and Mubarak in Egypt from office after decades of torture, corruption and barbarity. The brave actions of the people have inspired tens of millions of people across the Arab world to rise up against their own dictators.

But the revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt are still far from complete and the Western powers that supported the dictatorships are now manoeuvring to preserve their power and influence in the New Middle East.

We must say no to US or British intervention in the Middle East and North Africa: the future of Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, Bahrain, Yemen and the rest of the Arab world must be determined by the people of those countries alone. Oppose a ‘No Fly Zone’ on Libya – oppose imperialist bombing and war. No Iraq in Libya.

George Galloway has a unique knowledge of the Middle East having campaigned on the Palestinian cause for 35 years. He has led several blockade-busting aid convoys to Gaza following the Israeli 22 day war. Come and hear his views on why these revolutions have occurred and what is going to happen next.

George will be joined by other experts and campaigners to discuss resistance to imperialism from the Middle East to Latin America and how we can support it.
