In September 2001, following the attacks on the World Trade Centre, the U.S. and itâ€™s allies launched an offensive on the perpetrators of the WTC attacks in what was to become known as the global War On Terror. Five years on, with the death of thousands of innocent lives and thousands more detained illegally without trial or judgement, UCLU Islamic Society, in collaboration with UCLU Stop The War and Amnesty societies, hosts an entire week dedicated to analyse the war on terror; itâ€™s justifications, itâ€™s realities and itâ€™s effects.
Joining us for what will surely be a fascinating week will be some of the most prolific speakers in the country including, George Galloway (MP), Yvonne Ridley (Broadcaster), Moazzam Begg (Former Detainee at Guantanamo Bay), Victoria Britain (Journalist for The Guardian) and many more!
