Join us for a pot-luck dinner and a chance to meet visiting British author Greg Muttitt as he discusses his new book Fuel on the Fire: Oil and Politics in Occupied Iraq.
Since 2003, Greg has tracked how western oil interests pursued their agenda through the occupation of Iraq. Central to his story is the struggle of Iraqi oil workers and activists to control their future. Greg's work is well known in Iraq and in the international anti-war movement, and has had a central influence on policy debates in Baghdad.
The next film in the “Examining Modern Life” series, sponsored by the AFSC, is a 2005 documentary that analyzes the development of global events immediately in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, from the perspective of both oil-dependent and oil-abundant regions.
Consider this film a blast from the decade past, shown in 2011 as a reminder of the motives behind invading Iraq and Afghanistan and to refocus attention, now several years later, on questioning our continued involvement in the Middle East.
