"Freedom is what we make of it. If we stand against repression, authority and illegitimate structures, we are expanding the domain of freedom and that's what freedom will be. That's what we create; there is nothing to define in words."
-- Noam Chomsky

A three day event organized as a direct response to educate and empower people to make informed decisions about the many different war's being waged all over the world. Totally FREE of charge. This conference is an anarchist perspective on the different aspects and types of war, and how it affects us ordinary people in our daily lives. It will focus on growing political repression due to war, racism, immigration, patriotism, and also to promote community organizing, direct action/civil disobedience, and anarchist practices. As Anarchists we do not accept and refuse to obey the racist war's the US military has waged or is currently waging on people all over the world. This is a conference in which we are able to come together and speak to one another on what ordinary people can do to promote an anti-war and anti-authoritarian political movement within our own communities. We want a better world, one without hierarchy, imperialists, or empires. We want a new world, and we are hoping that through education and action we are able to achieve that common goal that binds us all together.
