Amnesty International Annual Lecture: Noam Chomsky - 'Hopes & Prospects'
Date: Fri 30 October 2009
The Amnesty International Annual Lecture returns with one of the world's sharpest commentators on international affairs and the struggle for human rights and dignity.
Professor Noam Chomsky surveys the threats and prospects of our early 21st century (the growing gap between North and South; American exceptionalism - even under Obama; the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and their aftermaths; the financial bailouts; the raids by unmanned US drones on Pakistani citizens; the Israeli assault on Gaza; the terrorist atrocities in Mumbai) - but finds also a hope for the future of liberty in the 'unprecedented international global justice movements'.
