The Media Workers Against the War conference in London on Saturday 15 November, which is open to all, has a very impressive list of contributors. Titled UNDER SIEGE: ISLAM, WAR AND THE MEDIA, contributors include PETER OBORNE from the Daily Mail, NICK DAVIES, author of Flat Earth News, MOAZZAM BEGG, ex-Guantanamo prisoner, LOUISE CHRISTIAN, civil liberties lawyer, EAMONN McCANN, author and journalist, among many others. The conference will examine how the media has been poisoned by the islamophobia associated with the "war on terror". It will also discuss new flashpoints, such as the unreported war in Somalia, the crisis in Afghanistan and its impact on Pakistan and the growing tension in the Caucasus. Last year's conference was packed and a great success.
Booking in advance this year is highly advisable to ensure a place.
