Event type:  Lecture Date and time:  Sunday, October 26, 2014 - 17:30 - 18:30 Venue:  Law Link Theatre Building # 5 Fellows Rd ANU Speaker:  Prof. Nazif M. Shahrani

Their demands are ignored and/or suppressed both by national regimes and their international patrons. The vengeful unleashing of the so called global war on terror, instigated by fear following the 9-11-2001 attacks against the US mainland, only has added fuel to politics of rage and turning it effectively into a global war for terror.  Was such escalation of violence inevitable?
