======== TUESDAY: EMERGENCY BRIEFING CALL ON IRAQ ============================

*When:* Tuesday, July 8, 2014, 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm *Where: *Conference Call
We know that there is NO MILITARY SOLUTION to the conflicts in Iraq and  
Syria. Our movement needs to organize to ensure that we do not repeat the  
disastrous policies of the past. United for Peace and Justice is hosting an  
emergency briefing call on Iraq this Tuesday, July 8, at 8 pm EDT/5 pm  


*Phyllis Bennis* (IPS) will be with us to review the recent developments in  
Iraq and the larger region, offering crucial perspective on challenging the  
current narrative concerning ISIS, the existing terrorist threat, the  
legitimacy and motives of the current Iraqi government, and the  
responsibility the U.S. government bears for the developing conflict. Hear  
the analysis peace activists need to argue for the only solution to Iraq’s  
current conflict – a ceasefire, an arms embargo, negotiations involving all  
the regional players, and a commitment to reconciliation.


*Terry Rockefeller *(September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows and  
UFPJ) will offer perspectives on the emerging humanitarian crisis and efforts  
by Iraqi civil society activists to address the sectarian conflict that is  
devastating their country.


*Rusti Eisenberg *(Co-coordinator of UFPJ’s legislative action working  
group) will discuss on-going efforts to pressure Congress and the White House  
to reject US military engagement and how peace and justice activists need to  
move this work forward.



*Tuesday, July 8: 8 pm EDT/5 pm PDT.*

*Call in number: (712) 432-1212*

*Meeting ID: 446-724-667#*

The call will last for 1 hour.


We very much hope you’ll be able to join us. Please  
RSVP: info.ufpj at gmail.com [1]


Many thanks,


*Jackie Cabasso and Terry Rockefeller*
