Forwarded Event Alert: UK – Egypt & the uprising in the Middle East

Tariq Ali, Judith Or

Friends Meeting House

event date:
Wednesday, 9 February 2011 – 7:00pm

Egypt is in turmoil and the revolt that began in Tunisia threatens to spread much wider.
But this time it is a country of over 80 million rather than 10 million, and Egypt is the linchpin of US policy in the Arab world.

The whole world is watching – the workers and oppressed in jubiliation, while the dictators and their friends in the West are trembling.

Come and hear analysis and eyewitness reports from the extraordinary movement unfurling across the region.

“And what reason have you that you should not fight in the way of Allah and of the weak among the men and the women and the children, (of) those who say: Our Lord! Cause us to go forth from this town, whose people are oppressors, and give us from Thee a guardian and give us from Thee a helper.”
Holy Qur’an: Chapter 4, Verse 75
