WAR IN SYRIA: TWO PERSPECTIVES

October 13, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

ZA'ATARI, JORDAN - FEBRUARY 01: Children pose for a picture as Syrian refugees go about their daily business in the Za'atari refugee camp on February 1, 2013 in Za'atari, Jordan. Record numbers of refugees are fleeing the violence and bombings in Syria to cross the borders to safety in northern Jordan and overwhelming the Za'atari camp. The Jordanian government are appealing for help with the influx of refugees as they struggle to cope with the sheer numbers arriving in the country.

Reese Erlich & Rick Sterling

will present their analyses of the conflict. They have different views in  some areas but are in agreement that we need to build a mass movement to oppose US aggression against Syria.

· Is the Syrian conflict a Civil War or a Foreign War of Aggression?
· Is Assad a brutal dictator or the legitimate leader of Syria?
· What is the role of the USA and its allies? What is the role of Russia, Iran and their allies?
· What are the dangers ahead and what should we do?
