======== CRISIS IN SYRIA: WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW AND WHAT NEXT? ================

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. intervention and pursue avenues to end the  
violence.
