Global Freedom Movements: An International AFA Conference

 In AFA 2019 Global Freedom Movements Conference, Upcoming Events

The title isn’t firm yet, but the date and topic are, and we are delighted to announce our October conference:

Global Freedom Movements

October 5 and 6 
a two-day conference

It’s  apparent that there’s a wind – a STRONG wind – of freedom gusting across the globe.  Brazil’s new President Bolsonaro; Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini, the Brexit movement, the election of Donald Trump here in the US, and the election of Boris Johnson as Prime Minister in England – these are just a few examples of people rejecting freedom-destroying policies and attitdues, and embracing, wherever possible, choices that speak of freedom, self-determination, sovereignty for themselves and their nations.

This conference will bring leaders of freedom-fighting movements from around the world together in one place:  Los Angeles, California.  We’ll be able to 1) discuss and explore the various issues nations are contending with and difficulties they’re facing; 2) share, compare and contrast the various strategies used for addressing them; 3) create an opportunity for networking, sharing, collaborating, and to make public statements in ways that might not be permitted elsewhere.  Speakers will include politicians, scholars, activists and journalists for a broad and well-balanced examination of the current state of the fight FOR freedom and AGAINST tyranny.

Join us for an extraordinary two-day conference where we bring together these key players from all over the globe to hear the stories of the battles they’re waging, what the specific faultlines are, the successes and challenges they’re facing, and what we can do to empower these freedom fighters.  

Already-confirmed speakers are:
Daniel Hannan – British author,and politician, noted as the architect of the #Brexit movement and current Member of the European Parliament since 1999.  He is also the author of nine books including New York Times bestseller Inventing Freedom:  How the English-Speaking Peoples Made the Modern World.  

Thierry Baudet –  Dutch politican and author, he is the founder and current political leader of the right-wing political party Forum for Democracy.  His most recent book, The Significance of Borders:  Why Representative Government and the Rule of Law Require Nation States is obviously relevant over on this side of the pond as well as in Europe. He is a  true Renaissance man, a fiery speaker and unapologetically pro-Dutch and pro-Western Civilization.

Marc Jongen – member of the “Alternaive for Germany” party. Of course, he has been vilified on US campuses for his “extreme right” views – video of his talk at Bard is here.  

Jan Zahradil – Czech politician for the Civic Democratic Party who has been a Member of the European Parliament since 2004. He is also the head of the Alliance of Conservatives and Reformists in Europe, ACRE.

Katie Hopkins – British journalist and activist whose advocacy for freedom and cultural sovereignty has placed her on the front lines in many of these arenas.  She was electrifying at the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s West Coast Retreat in April, and her documentary, Homelands, is a poignant tale of what’s happening in Europe today. 

Dominik Tarczynski – member of the Poland Law and Justice Party, member of the European Parliament, Vice Chair of the European Conservatives Group, who rose to international visibility when he invited Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes to visit an actual concentration camp.  

Guy Milliere – Distinguished Senior Fellow of the Gatestone Institute and a Fellow of the American Freedom Alliance, Guy has published over 40 books on France, Europe, the United States, Israel and the Middle East, and has published thousands of articles  in France, Israel and the United States. 

And many others!
