Noam Chomsky and Vijay Prashad on The Withdrawal at The People’s Forum

The People’s Forum
320 W 37th Street,
New York NY

Please join The New Press and The People’s Forum for the launch of Noam Chomsky and Vijay Prashad’s The Withdrawal: Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, and the Fragility of U.S. Power. Coinciding with the one-year anniversary of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan, leading public intellectuals Chomsky and Prashad discuss the past twenty years of American imperialism, and their horrifying outcomes- disastrous interventions in Iraq, Libya, and Afghanistan as well as the engineering of a new security state with unprecedented powers of surveillance and detention.

As the final moments of American power in Afghanistan fade from view, this crucial book argues that we must not take our eyes off the wreckage—and that we need, above all, an unsentimental view of the new world we must build together.

A discussion will be followed by a Q&A and book signing by Vijay Prashad.

This event will be livestreamed on our YouTube and in-person. If coming to The People’s Forum, please be prepared to show proof of vaccination and ID.
