"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

The "Many Faces of War" conference, was created by
POWER(People Opposing War, Empires and Rulers) and
many other organizations, 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. The three-day conference is totally FREE of
charge, each night of the conference we will hold a
variety of musical benefit shows, all $$$ that is made
will go towards groups participating in the
conference, and Arts In Action.
The conference is an anarchist/anti-authoritarian
perspective on war, it will focus on growing political
repression due to war, racism, immigration,
patriotism, community organizing, anarchist history,
and the overall effect that war has on regular people,
it will also be a time that 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 together, within
their own community. 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.
