Default "Attica to Abu Ghraib" Conference

A fellow PTOer, Xochi told me about the following which may be of interest to some PTOers

"Attica to Abu Ghraib" Conference

Friday, April 22nd & Saturday, April 23rd, 2005

Today we see a terrifying escalation in that repression, whether against Iraqis and Afghans half a world away — or immigrants, prisoners, and political activists here at home. Our strength lies in building on the experiences of those who resist – here in the US, in Latin America, Palestine, the Philippines, the Caribbean, and in countless communities throughout the world.

For more information, they can be contacted at: info@attica2abughraib.com
