In advance of US president Barack Obama’s visit to Ireland, an American academic will deliver a public lecture in Galway entitled Obama: Warlord of the US Empire.
Brian Kelly, originally from the United States, and now a lecturer at Queen’s University, Belfast, will deliver the lecture this Saturday upstairs in Richardson’s, Eyre Square, at 8pm.
Mr Kelly will examine Mr Obama's presidency to date and argue that very little has actually changed for American domestic or foreign policies under his watch. Mr Kelly will also argue that under Mr Obama there have also been many instances of broken promises, war-mongering, and the suppression of human rights.
The meeting is arranged by the Socialist Workers Party. All are welcome and admission is free
