On March 19, 2003 Iraq was attacked by US led coalition a second time. 8 yxears later the NATO started an onslaught against Libya. In both countries not only the infrastructure and the social coherency was destroyed, but many people lost their life as well. Many of the people were forced to live their lands.

Whilst Europe is compassionate with itself because of refugees seeking asyllum in Europe, the same state union that was awarded with the Nobel piece prize threatens the life of our brothers and sisters on our earth not only by wars. The wars against Iraq and Libya are only two examples in the long chain of 500 years of colonialism. The war against Libya was not only directed towards Gaddafi but against an entire continent: "Gaddafi’s Libya cost the West, not just depriving it of US$500 million per year but the billions of dollars in debt and interest that the initial loan would generate for years to come and in an exponential manner, thereby helping maintain an occult system in order to plunder the continent." (Jean-Paul Pougala)

On Thursday, March 19, 2015, we do not want to repeat what is told to us by the conquerors but listen what people from Asia and Africa have to tell about the NATO wars imposed on us. We show some films and try to strengthen our understanding about today.
