"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.
