George Galloway is Respect party MP for Bethnal Green and Bow in East 
London.  He recently electrified the United States with his appearance at a 
Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations hearing on May 17, when he 
turned the proceedings into a condemnation of the war in Iraq. CNN's Wolf 
Blitzer described Galloway's speech in the Senate as "a blistering attack 
on US senators rarely heard" in Washington. His new book, out in September, 
is Mr. Galloway Goes to Washington (The New Press)

Christopher Hitchens is a widely published polemicist and frequent radio 
and TV commentator.  He is the author of A Long Short War, Why Orwell 
Matters, The Trial of Henry Kissinger, and many other books. He is a 
contributing editor to Vanity Fair.  The London Observer calls him "One of 
the most brilliant journalists of our time."

Two years after the invasion of Iraq, Galloway and Hitchens will debate the 
causes and consequences of the war. Both will be signing books after the 
debate.

This debate is part of a national tour of the United States by George 
Galloway, "Stand Up and Be Counted: No to War and Occupation." The tour 
will culminate in Washington, DC, during the anti-war protests on September 
24th.
