Attacks on London: Clash of Civilizations or Reaction to the War on Iraq?
Book Reading with Author Milan Rai
Wednesday, June 21, 2006, 7:00 pm, Laughing Horse Books, 12 NE 10th

Milan Rai, a peace activist and the author of "7/7: The London Bombings, Islam and the Iraq War," will hold a book reading on Wednesday, June 21, 2006 at 7:00 PM at Laughing Horse Books, 12 NE 10th Ave in Portland.

Milan co-founded the direct action and information group ARROW (Active Resistance to the Roots Of War) in 1990, the British branch of Voices in the Wilderness in 1998, and Justice Not Vengeance in the aftermath of the 2003 invasion of Iraq. He went on four sanctions-breaking delegations to Iraq between 1998 and 2001. Milan was the first person to be arrested for breaking the economic sanctions on Iraq for taking children's medicines to Iraq without an export license.

He is also the author of: Chomsky's Politics; War Plan Iraq: Ten Reasons Why We Shouldn't Launch Another War On Iraq; and Regime Unchanged. "7/7: The London Bombings, Islam and the Iraq War" was published in April 2006 by Pluto Press.

This event is being coordinated in Portland by the Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group, who can be contacted at iraq@pjw.info or 503-236-3065. Milan's national book tour is coordinated by Voices for Creative Nonviolence in Chicago, Illinois www.vcnv.org.

Please note that Laughing Horse Books' address on NE 10th is a new address as of June, 2006.
