On Thursday night, Donald Trump attacked Syria with over 50 Tomahawk missiles. We don’t know who caused the chemical attack in Idlib province, but U.S. bombs will not help the situation. The Syrian civil war must be solved by diplomacy, not more bombs.
A new U.S. war against Syria’s government is not the answer to the catastrophic Syrian civil war.
Saturday, March 11, the weekly Park Street vigil, 1-2pm, will be a speak-out to stop the wars on Syria & Yemen. This is in response to Hands Off Syria Coalition's call for International Days of Action Against War and Islamophobia during the week of March 11-19.
The war in Syria is an imperialist foreign-backed attack cultivated and propelled by the United States and their regional allies, with the goal of regime change, maximum chaos and deprivation, and territorial partition.

Rally against US arms sales and military cooperation with Saudi Arabia
Thursday, Oct. 27, 5 pm, MIT at 77 Mass Ave (main building)
Demand that MIT end its collaboration with the King Abdulaziz City of Science and Technology (KACST). According to the Oxford Business Group, KACST has developeded partnerships with the two largest US military contractos (Lockheed Martin and Boeing) and is a key institution in carry out R&D in support of Saudi Arabia's military modernization. It is unclear at this stage whether MIT's collaboration specifically includes research with military applications. But given US supported Saudi Arabian war crimes in Yemen and its abysmal human rights record, it is inappropriate for US universities to be supportive of key institutions in Saudi Arabia's military infrastructure.
Talks by Phyllis Bennis October 11-14
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?
