AUDIO FILE: Ambition of Empire

Tuesday evening, April 27, 2004, at Portland State University, two speakers addressed a gathering of about 300-400 people on the topic: "Ambition Of Empire, The Radical Reconstruction of Iraq's Economy and the Making of a Quagmire." First to speak was Antonia Juhasz; second was Greg Palast, both in town on book tour.
Antonia Juhasz is the author of "Does Globalization Help the Poor?" Her article "Ambition of Empire," from which much of the evening's presentation was taken, was just nominated for a Project Censored award.
"Antonia has an exceptional ability to weave diverse themes into a coherent and forceful call to action. She's an analyst and writer with the International Forum on Globalization,
and directs several IFG programs, including Alternatives to Economic Globalization, Globalization and the Commodification of Water, and Media Outreach. Antonia is an expert on international trade and investment agreements, from the World Trade Organization to the Free Trade Area of the Americas......both a policy expert and a grassroots organizer."
Excellent presentation. She connects up the U.S. war and occupation of Iraq with worldwide Global Free Trade.
Audio file is 32 minutes in length.

Next Greg Palast addressed the audience. Greg Palast is the author of "The Best Democracy Money Can Buy." Just a few days ago he released an "expanded election edition" of his book The Best Democracy Money Can Buy: The Truth about Corporate Cons, Globalization and High-Finance Fraudsters. The book contains new material just in time for an election season shaping up to be a bloodbath.
Palast's remarks were punctuated with his characteristic wit, humor and sarcasm. He delighted the crowd, weaving old and new material together in an educational and entertaining presentation. His remarks cover the 2000 Florida election fraud, as well as the situation in Iraq.
Also about 30 minutes in length.
