We Are Everywhere: the irresistible rise of global anticapitalism was described by Canadian writer Naomi Klein as "...the first book to truly capture and embody the exuberant creativity and radical intellect of the protest movements." Two of the book's co-producers, author Jennifer Whitney and photojournalist Andrew Stern, along with film maker David Martinez and British activist Jo Wildings, are traveling throughout the US in order to present not only the book, but also the results of their further research and investigation into international protest movements and their ties to the growing anti-war movement. Stern, Martinez and Wildings are just back from Iraq, and will present hard-hitting images, stories and video from the streets of Baghdad and Fallujah to accompany Whitney's analysis. The presentation is a multimedia performance comprised of several elements: a slideshow and video from the current uprising in Iraq, a video highlighting the diversity of various threads of resistance around the world, an exhibition of beautiful photos and illustrative quotations from their book, a brief talk on the current situation in Iraq and the connections between the anti-war movements and the global anticapitalist movements covered in We Are Everywhere, and an open discussion with the audience.
