"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.

"...ironically, perhaps, the best organized dissenters

in the world today are anarchists, who are busily 
undermining capitalism while the rest of the left is 
still trying to form committees." 
--Jeremy Hardy, the Guardian (UK)
