Popular movements across the Middle East and North Africa are sweeping away decades-old dictatorships. Activists all over the world - including right here in Pittsburgh - have marched and rallied in solidarity with these popular, democratic movements. The link between many of these repressive regimes and the U.S. government has placed an added urgency to the solidarity movement here. No link is more direct than the one the U.S. government has historically shared with the Egyptian dictatorship. After Israel, the repressive Mubarak regime is the second largest recipient of U.S. military aid - he's shored up his government with guns and influence bought with U.S. dollars for three decades.
Come join the Pittsburgh International Socialist Organization for a presentation and discussion on the revolutionary movements sweeping the Middle East and North Africa.
