A Socialist Action Forum
The War in Syria: The Role of Imperialism and the C.I.A.
Propaganda from Obama, Trump, and the corporate media would have you believe that the violence in Syria represents “good” vs. “evil.” Bad Syrian President Bashir Assad against U.S. backed “freedom fighters.” But, who are these freedom fighters? Why are religious extremists fighting to topple Assad with support from the U.S./C.I.A. and the reactionary Saudi Arabian Sheiks? And, finally, what are Washington’s goals in this oil rich region? Come and hear the surprising answers to these questions and more. A discussion will follow with:
JEFF MACKLER, member of the Coordinating Committee of the United National AntiWar Coalition, West Coast Coordinator of the Free Mumia Abu-Jamal Coalition, National Secretary of Socialist Action (appearing via SKYPE).
JOE LOMBARDO: Co-coordinator of the United National Antiwar Coalition (UNAC)
