Location: Jesse White Community Center, 410 W Chicago Avenue, Meeting Room 132, 6:30 – 8:30 P.M. / Free and open to the public
Join us at a public forum to discuss the origins and significance of the bloody wars raging in Syria and Yemen. Speakers will include Joe Mshahwar, a young Syrian-American activist with the Michigan Emergency Committee Against War & Injustice, and Randi Nord, a journalist who covers the Middle East for Geopolitics Alert.
Our panel will dig behind the headlines to address why the U.S. government is spending billions of our tax dollars to seek the violent overthrow of Syria’s democratically elected president, Bashar al-Assad, and the defeat of Yemen’s Popular Resistance Coalition. What was the real reason for Trump’s cruise missile attack on Syria’s Shayrat airbase? Why is the U.S. supporting Syrian offshoots of the very terrorist groups that Trump claims to oppose? Why is the U.S. arming Saudi Arabia with planes and bombs used to massacre tens of thousands in Yemen, one of the world’s poorest countries?
Our speakers will answer these questions as they expose the role of the western oil companies, big banks, and arms makers in promoting the continued bloodshed in Syria and Yemen. We also will discuss how we in the Midwest can build a movement to demand money for human needs, not for racist wars.
