Announcement :: War and Militarism

Thursday, October 13, 7:00 pm ~ Brandeis University, Mandel G12. Sponsored by Peace, Conflict & Coexistence Studies program; Brandeis Peace Action, Graduate Program in Conflict Resolution and Coexistence, Schusterman Center, Social Justice and Social Policy, and Sociology

Friday, October 14, 11:00 am ~ Bristol Community College, 800 Purchase St., New Bedford. Sponsored by the BCC Multicultural Committee

Is the war in Syria a civil war? Is it a proxy war between the US and Russia ? Is it also a proxy war between Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Turkey? Can ISIS be reined in? Should Assad go? Or stay? Should the US "do more"? Or is it already doing too much by arming and training rebel groups? What will be the likely outcome of the current cease fire negotiations?

How can such a complex set of wars be settled by diplomacy? What solutions should the US peace movement support?

The talks are open to the public

Phyllis Bennis, director of the New Internationalism Project at the Institute for Policy Studies, has been a writer, analyst, and activist on Middle East and UN issues for many years. She co-founded United for Peace and Justice and the U.S. Campaign to End Israeli Occupation and co-chairs the UN-based International Coordinating Network on Palestine.

She is the author of Understanding ISIS and the New Global War on Terror: A Primer. Phyllis Bennis gave a detail-packed teleconference briefing on the Syrian civil war on September 14. Listen to the recording.

This tour is sponsored by Massachusetts Peace Action's Middle East Working Group. Contact the working group to organize for action on US Syria policy.
