Mike Prysner, leading US anti-imperialist, gives support to GDC
Today, the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign organised a meeting in Glasgow with Mike Prysner, an ex-US soldier who served in Iraq and then became an active anti-imperialist organiser in the anti-war ANSWER coalition and the March Forward campaign http://www.answercoalition.org/national/index.html. People should see his amazing speech on imperialism and racism to the Winter Soldier testimonials here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9kWU-JHetMM&feature=fvsr
Comrades from Fight Racism! Fight Imperialism! and the Glasgow Defence Campaign attended the meeting and applauded another amazing speech on the need for anti-imperialism and the struggle for a new world. We spoke to Mike after the meeting and he pledged his support for the GDC and those facing police harassment in Glasgow. We appreciate his continuing organisation and unbending commitment to the anti-imperialist struggle and for giving such an inspiring speech in Glasgow today.
