Some of them are being co-hosted by close UFPJ allies and partners. These include the workshops on nuclear disarmament and organizing against militarism being held by Peace and Planet, like: There’s also a chance to meet with members of Iraqi civil society, some of whom have partnered with us in opposition to the US invasion and occupation of their country at Baghdad Cafè with the Iraqi Social Forum. United for Peace and Justice’s co-convener, Terry Rockefeller- a representative of Sept. 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows-, will also be on a panel with members of the Iraqi Social Forum at International Solidarity with the Iraqi Protests and with People’s Civil Struggle in Middle-East Against Fundamentalism, Sectarianism and Authoritarianism.
