Crisis in Syria: What's Happening Now and What Next?

When: Wednesday, June 26, 2013, 5:30 pm
Where: telephone conference call

The war in Syria is worsening and President Obama has pledged to help arm the opposition to the President Assad. Even though the vast majority of U.S. citizens do not want to intervene, at this point Obama has promised small arms. But war-hawks want to go further and try to create a no fly zone, provide heavy weapons, use cruise missiles to attack key targets and do whatever else they can to ensure the current regime falls. Join us for a panel briefing on Syria discussing what is happening to Syrians, what next and how we can push for no U.S.

Activists Press Hancock Air Base to Obey International Law

275 People at Protest; 31 Arrested

April 28, 2013 - Thirty one members of the “Upstate Coalition to Ground the Drones and End the Wars” were arrested today at Hancock Air Force Base protesting what is the illegal use of drones in Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries. Drones are flown from Hancock Field. Over 275 people marched in a solemn funeral procession to demand that Hancock Air National Guard Base cease drone strikes. People carrying banners and coffins identified countries where U.S. drone attacks have killed over a thousand innocent civilians. As they were arrested, some read the names of people who have died in the drone attacks.

People who participated in the demonstration, including some who were arrested, came from all over the country to raise an outcry against the proliferation of drone strikes abroad, including countries with whom the US is not at war.

By ANDREW F. MARCH

LATE last year, a jury in Boston convicted Tarek Mehanna, a 29-year-old pharmacist born in Pittsburgh, of material support for terrorism, conspiring to provide material support to terrorists and conspiring to kill in a foreign country, after a 35-day trial in which I testified as an expert witness for the defense.
