"Where Are We Heading: Terrorism, Global Security, and the Peace Movement": During a Time Ofseemingly Endless War, We’ll Hear From Radical Historian Howard Zinn

This is viewer supported news

The United States ambassador for war crimes said yesterday that the Geneva Conventions are outdated and need to be rewritten to deal with the threat of international terrorism.

His remarks, in an interview with The Independent, represent the first time a senior figure in the Bush administration has spoken so unambiguously about an overhaul of the conventions, which are largely believed to have tempered some of the worst excesses of modern warfare. They reflect Washington’s exasperation at criticism by Western allies and international organizations of its treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay.

During a time of seemingly endless war, there are few more important voices than that of long time radical historian and peace activist Howard Zinn. We go now to a speech he gave in Cambridge Massachusetts on February 10. It is called "Where are We Heading: Terrorism, Global security, and the Peace Movement," a talk given at a benefit for the Alliance for Democracy. It was recorded by Robbie Leppzer of Turning Tide productions.

Tape:

  • Howard Zinn, radical historian, activist, and author of ??A People’s History of the United States.
