You are herecontent / George Galloway
This Wednesday’s debate between Christopher Hitchens and
George Galloway (moderated by Democracy Now’s Amy Goodman)
will be webcast live online at 6:10pm CST.
George Galloway, the antiwar British MP—who made headlines
in May for denouncing the Iraq War in the U.S. Senate—is
currently on a tour of the United States—including stops in
Chicago and Madison with Vietnam era antiwar activist Jane Fonda.
Christopher Hitchens—the one-time progressive author turned
pro-war media flack—will square off with Galloway—who recently
described Hitchens as a "drink-sodden, former Trotskyite popinjay."
The debate will be webcast over http://kpftx.org
It will also be broadcast at a later date on CSPAN.
The Galloway tour, "Stand Up and Be Counted: No to War and
Occupation" will make its way to Chicago next week:

The national tour is sponsored by The New Press,

George Galloway is Respect party MP for Bethnal Green and Bow
in East London. He recently electrified the United States
with his appearance at a Senate Permanent Subcommittee on
Investigations hearing on May 17, when he turned the proceedings
into a condemnation of the war in Iraq. CNN's Wolf Blitzer
described Galloway's speech in the Senate as "a blistering
attack on US senators rarely heard" in Washington.
Galloway's new book is "Mr. Galloway Goes to Washington"
(The New Press) and will be published and timed for national
release in bookstores in conjunction with the tour. Mr. Galloway
will be available to sign books after the event.
