======== PHYLLIS BENNIS: THE PEACE MOVEMENT AND SYRIA ========================

-------- SYRIA: WE NEED TO STOP A NEW WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST -----------------

.... /Brunch and conversation with Phyllis Bennis/

Friends Service Committee • 2161 Massachusetts Ave • Porter Sq T •  
The Syrian civil war is spreading, but US military action is the last thing  
the country needs.  

What are the main factors at work in the Syrian crisis and the U.S. response  
to it, including President Obama's recent decision to provide lethal aid to  
the rebels?  How should the peace movement respond?

Phyllis Bennis, director of the New Internationalism Project at the Institute  
for Policy Studies, has been a writer, analyst, and activist on Middle East  
and UN issues for many years.  In 2001 she helped found and remains on the  
steering committee of the U.S. Campaign to End Israeli Occupation. She works  
closely with the United for Peace and Justice anti-war coalition, co-chairs  
the UN-based International Coordinating Network on Palestine, and since 2002  
has played an active role in the growing global peace movement. 

Her books include "Understanding the US-Iran Crisis: A Primer" and  
"Challenging Empire: How People, Governments, and the UN Defy US Power".
