What are conditions in Iraq today? How are events in Tunisia and Egypt impacting the people of Iraq? What is the role of young people organizing in Iraq today? What is the role of the U.S. in Iraq today? This event is sponsored by: Mayday Books, Twin Cities Peace Campaign and Anti-War Committee. Mayday Bookstore is located in the basement of the Hub.
