This Funzing Experience:

An alternative perspective on the Middle East

Confused about the endless wars in the Middle East, the terrorism, the refugee crisis, the suspect “fake news”?

Me too, so let’s explore this together.

Ever since I was involved in an MI5 whistleblowing scandal in the 1990s about an illegal MI6 assassination plot against the now-deposed Colonel Gaddafi of Libya, I have been watching developments across the region with great attention, working with other intelligence whistleblowers and journalists to try to get a feel for what might really be going on there behind the headlines.

So what is the history? What are the current competing interests and why? How is this represented in the news? And what can we, as concerned citizens, do about all this?

Venue: Lock 91, Manchester

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
