Tuesday, Oct. 8th - National Teach-In on Syria & US Policy in the Region
6:30 to 7:30 pm EST
Live Streaming at http://www.busboysandpoets.com/videos/live-streaming
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.
