Two years after the invasion of Iraq, British MP George Galloway and

journalist Christopher Hitchens will debate the causes and

consequences of the Iraq war at Baruch College in New York City.

Moderated by Amy Goodman.

George Galloway is Respect party MP for Bethnal Green and Bow in East

London. He recently electrified the United States with his appearance

at the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations on May 17, when

he turned the proceedings into a condemnation of the war in Iraq.

CNN's Wolf Blitzer described Galloway's speech in the Senate as "a

blistering attack on U.S. senators rarely heard" in Washington. His

new book, out in September, is "Mr. Galloway Goes to Washington" (The

New Press).

Christopher Hitchens is a widely published polemicist and frequent

radio and TV commentator. He is the author of "A Long Short War," "Why

Orwell Matters," "The Trial of Henry Kissinger," and many other books.

The London Observer calls him "One of the most brilliant journalists

of our time."

This debate is part of a national tour of the United States by George

Galloway, "Stand Up and Be Counted: No to War and Occupation." The

tour will culminate in Washington, DC, during the anti-war protests on

September 24th. For a full list of cities and events, please see the

website: http://www.mrgallowaygoestowashington.com/.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

British MP George Galloway Speaks in Los Angeles to Demand Money for

Hurricane Katrina Relief, Not War in Iraq

Anti-war activists and members of the Arab community will join British

MP George Galloway at Immanuel Presbyterian Church {The views expressed

by the participants are not necessarily those of Immanuel Presbyterian

Church.}at 7pm on Thursday, September 22 to demand money and resources

for hurricane relief, not war. This event will accept donations to be

sent to New Orleans with a delegation from the Campus Anti-War Network.

Galloway blasted President Bush’s response to Hurricane Katrina,

saying:

“The scenes from the stricken city almost defy belief. Many, many

thousands of people left to die in what is the richest, most powerful

country on earth.

In the most terrible way imaginable they show to the whole world that

it is not only the lives of people in Baghdad, Fallujah and Palestine

that Bush holds cheap. It is also his own citizens — the black and poor

people left behind with no food, water or shelter.

This is not simply manslaughter through incompetence, though the White

House’s incompetence abounds.

It is murder — for Bush was warned four years ago of the threat to

New Orleans, as surely as he was warned of the disaster that would come

of his war on Iraq.”

George Galloway is Respect party MP for Bethnal Green and Bow in East

London. CNN's Wolf Blitzer described Galloway's May 17 speech at the

Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations as "a blistering attack
