The civil war continues in Syria.

Although a threat of a US. missile attack against Syria was averted, the raging civil war continues. The massive outpouring of anti-war sentiment from the people in every corner of the country and around the world prevented a US military strike.

Our victory was clear, but our work is far from over.

• How did the peace movement in the U.S. and world-wide stop Washington from proceeding with military action in Syria?

• How can we build on our success to change U.S. policy in the region?

• What’s happening now, on the ground in Syria and on the diplomatic front?

A dynamic panel will address these questions and our next steps to change US policy in the region.

  1. Tell the truth about Syria: that the mercenaries carried out the August 21 chemical attacks / that the mercenaries are paid, supplied and trained by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the U.S.A, and other nations to destabilize the country of Syria, and that destabilizations have occurred many times in history. Destabilizations are another term for war acts of aggression against sovereign nations-crimes against humanity-breaking international law. Call out the supplying of rebels/paid mercenaries for what it is: war crimes.
    Thank you.
