National Teach-In on Syria & US Policy in the Region

When: Tuesday, October 8, 2013, 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm
Where: Web •

The  civil war continues in Syria. Thanks to action by hundreds of thousands of people like you, a threat of a U.S. missile attack  against Syria was averted. 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.

But the raging civil war continues and the scope of the humanitarian crisis grows. Our victory was  clear, but our work is far from over.


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

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

Watch the teach-in online, gather  for potluck dinners, show the broadcast to begin a discussion on what we can do  now, share the info with your family and co-workers. Just click on  between 6:15-6:30pm EST and wait for the  broadcast to begin.
