Former Congresswoman, Cynthia McKinney, visits the UK

Date: 10th September 2007
Place: Friends'™ Meeting House, Road, Camden, London

Former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, gave a talk called 'Confronting Empire' on 10th September in London.

The speech and q&a touches on a wide array of subjects including the assassination of MLK and RFK, Rwanda, The Project for a New American Century, 9/11, The Jena 6 amongst others. Organised by the 9/11 truth campaign in Britain and Ireland.

In 1992 Cynthia made history when she became the first African American woman to represent Georgia in the United States House of Representatives.

During her tenure, Cynthia won recognition as an outspoken leader for human rights, an ardent advocate for peace, and a determined worker for justice. As reports now surface that US soldiers are returning from Iraq and testing positive for depleted uranium, it is important to note that Cynthia McKinney sponsored legislation to end the use of all depleted uranium weapons until their health effects are known.

Cynthia voted against record Bush administration Pentagon budgets, and challenged the Pentagon to explain how it "lost" over $2.3 trillion in un-traceable transactions. She continues to decry the Pentagon's sweetheart deals with Halliburton, the Carlyle Group, and DynCorp and its successor companies.

Cynthia speaks out against the loss of fundamental freedoms under the Bush administration. She became one of the first Members of Congress to demand a thorough investigation into the events of September 11, 2001 and responsibly asked the question: "What did the administration know and when did it know it about the events of September 11th?" As a result of her thought-provoking question, an estimated 40,000 Republicans voted in the Georgia Democratic Primary to oust Cynthia. It is called "crossover" voting and her supporters filed a lawsuit against this practice.
