Somalia is a proud people with a leading anti-colonial past and recent history. A once stable and prosperous liberated country it has in recent decades been ravaged by imperialist-instigated destabilisation. Today in part as consequence to all this the Somali people have been facing a drought and famine. Mohammed Ibrahim Shire (pictured) has been doing excellent work by returning to the Homeland from England to assist directly with the relief work and will be educating us about what is happening there and putting it into wider political contexts.
Mohammed Shire is also the author of one of the only political biographies of Somali anti-imperialist socialist leader Siad Barre, he will be bringing some copies with him to sign and sell.
