A very timely event considering all the colonial celebrations of the wars and 50 years since his death this year etc, time a solidly decolonial anti-imperialist event on this subject was announced, so respect to Hafsa Kara initiating and organising it on behalf of the Tricontinental Anti-Imperialist Platform. And great to have the veteran Iraqi revolutionary Kamal Majid and Vice President of Stop the War Coalition speaking at this event!
