"Ethnic Cleansing & Slavery in Contemporary Africa"
Anarchist Forum
New York City, May 9, 2006

On Tuesday, May 9, at 7:30pm, the Libertarian Book Club's Anarchist Forum
will present a panel discussing Ethnic Cleansing and Slavery in
Contemporary Africa with emphasis on Mauritania, Sudan and Darfur.

The panel
will include Abdarahmane Wone and Mamadou Barry, members of FLAM (African
Liberation Front of Mauritania), and other African activists. They will
describe the frightening situations in North Africa as they really are. We
hear reporters speak of slavery as it is in Africa today and of the deaths
caused by the armed forces of one ethnic group killing the ordinary people
of another ethnic group, but the panel will speak not as reporters but as
people who have lived in the societies where these horrors were taking
place. After the presentation the panel will answer questions from the
audience and speak about what can be done to remedy the situations.

The event will take place at the Brecht Forum, 451 West Street,
Manhattan (between Bank and Bethune streets) (212-242-4201).
Take an A, C, E, or L train to the 14th Street and 8th Avenue subway stop
or take a 1, 2, or 3 train to the 14th Street and 7th Avenue stop.

Everybody is welcome and invited to come and to have their say.
Admission is free for the presentation, but a contribution to aid the LBC is
