Glasgow CND - Opposing wars of empire

We would like to invite you to attend our forthcoming conference entitled 'World War 1: opposing wars of empire then and now'. The opening session will be '1914-2014 - a century of militarism and war'. Another session will examine the current situation in the Asia-Pacific region under the title 'the US pivot to Asia and the encirclement of China'. A third session will consider 'Venezuela - a case study in destabilisation'. We have three outstanding speakers - Kate Hudson (general secretary of CND), Jenny Clegg (author of a recent book on China) and Neil Findlay MSP (last year attended the presidential elections in Venezuela as an international observer).

The conference will take place on Saturday 5 July from 10.30am to 1.30pm in the Renfield Centre, 260 Bath Street, Glasgow. The conference will hopefully provide some relief from an extavagant programme of official events which attempt to glorify World War 1 as a necessary war to resist German militarism.

I do hope you can manage to attend this important event.
