Iraq War 11 Years On: What’s the Real Story

Thursday May 29th 2014, Iraq War 11 Years On: What’s the Real Story, Volkseten Vegazulu, exceptionally at 6pm.

The US led invasion of Iraq in 2003 and its ongoing aftermath may be remembered as the worst tragedy of the early 21st century. It is estimated that Iraq has witnessed over 1 million excess deaths, 4.2 million injured people and 4.5 million refugees since the invasion.

– How may we understand the current situation in Iraq?
– What were the reasons and interest behind the invasion?
– What is the role of oil and multinational corporations?
– What is the role of the Netherlands?
– May we speak of Western neo-imperialism?

Join us for a lecture and lively discussion with Ali Al-jaberi.
Al-Jaberi is a political scientist and has worked as a lecturer of International Relations and journalist in Iraq.

The lecture will start at 7pm. Be there at 6pm if you would like to taste our vegan cuisine. The event is organized by Reinform in association with Kritische Studenten Amsterdam.
