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:

7pm Monday, September 19

Thorne Auditorium (Northwestern Law School)

375 E. Chicago Ave.

For tickets to the Chicago event ($10 each)

Call 1-800-595-4849 or

The national tour is sponsored by The New Press,

The National Council of Arab Americans,

the International Socialist Review and

the Center for Economic Research and Social Change.

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.

As Hitchens "besottedness" continues/(d) to the point where the mind begins to go, Hitchens found solace in his newly-found brain function loss in-and-among the right wing and corporate piggies as an apologist for all kinds of "new-speak".

I think the first time I noticed that Hitchens was on a rapidly downward spiral into the abyss... was when he excoriated Mother Theresa in an entire book.

I mean... why bother?

I have always had the impression he was trying to play devil's advocate. Just not doing it well.

Great..he is going to share the same stage with Jane Fonda. Whose crazy f**king idea was that! Jane is a liability to our cause..any presence or statement from her sets our cause back years and gives the rightwingnuts more ammo. The guy should be on tour with or at least make an appearance with Cindy. Two steps forward and 10 back. Lets hope the rally does some good because people if it doesn't we are f**ucked. Bushco does not care about any of us. Listen to what I am saying. PNAC is determined to rule the world just read it on their website. Its all about world domination...oh yeh i know "it couldn't possibly happen here in America!! Get real people...IT IS HAPPENING NOW! IF WE DON'T GET RID OF THESE F**KERS NOW, ITS ALL OVER. DO ANY OF YOU REALLY THINK ANYTHING IS GOING TO CHANGE IN EITHER 2006 OR 2008? THEY HAVE ALL THE CONTROL NOW..JUST LOOK WHAT THEY DID WITH HR 375. DO YOU THINK ALL THE GRASS ROOTS WORK WILL REALLY GET THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY BACK IN POWER 2 1/2 YEARS FROM NOW? EVEN IF WE DID DO YOU REALLY THINK THESE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO CHANGE? HELL NO!! DO WE WANT 2 1/2 MORE YEARS OF BUSHCO BULLS**T? WHAT I AM SAYING IS WE CAN NOT AFFORD TO WAIT UNTIL 2006 TO TRY TO GET BACK CONTROL OF CONGRESS AND EVEN IF WE DID DO YOU THINK THE WHITE HOUSE WOULD IDLY SIT BY AND AND DO NOTHING? THE LONGER THEY ARE IN POWER THE MORE POWER THEY WILL HAVE. LISTEN TO ME PEOPLE WE HAVE TO GET RID OF THEM NOW!!! WE DON'T NEED ANY MORE INQUIRIES INTO WHAT THEY DID IN 2002. EVEN IF HR 375 GOT OUT OF COMMITTEE DO YOU REALLY THINK THAT THE WHITE HOUSE WOULD HAVE COOPERATED? OF COURSE NOT. WHILE WE ARE FIDDLING AROUND WITH THIS THEY WILL MARSHALL THEIR FORCES TO PUT ROBERTS IN AS CHIEF JUSTICE. THEN WE ARE F**KED FOR 30 YEARS. YEH I KNOW I AM COMPLAINING BUT YOU HAVE GOT TO REALIZE THEY ONLY WAY WE ARE GOING TO GET RID OF THESE PEOPLE IS THROUGH IMPEACHMENT. NOTHING ELSE MATTERS. ALL OF CINDY'S WORK WILL HAVE BEEN FOR NOTHING. THIS BATTLE IS NOT FOR THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF THE RIGHT WING. ALL THE LOGIC AND RHETORIC IS NOT GOING TO CHANGE THEIR MINDS. WE CAN ONLY WIN THE BATTLE IF WE THROW THEM OUT THROUGH THE IMPEACHMENT PROCESS WHICH IS WHAT THE FOUNDING FATHERS GAVE TO US. AM I CALLING FOR A REVOLUTION?? YOU G** D** RIGHT! ITS GOT TO BE STARTED IN CONGRESS. WE HAVE A FOOTHOLD IN CONGRESS IN THE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE. THAT'S WHERE THE BATTLE WILL BE WON OR LOST. SUPPORT IMPEACHMENT! CALL FOR IMPEACHMENT! NOW

Your right, we are f***ed!!!!!!!

I'm curious to know if anyone has a link to the galloway hitchens debate from last night. I checked out a few of the links and noone seems to have it available at the moment. I would assume it would be saved for later streaming.

I would really appreciate it if someone could provide a link to listen to it now. - thanks

found the links
