Democratic Socialists of America October Forum

October 9, 7:00 pm
Encuentro 5, 9 Hamilton Place, Boston (near Park St T)

SPEAKERS: Shelagh Foreman, /Peace Action/; Mitchell Silver, /Workmen’s  

Civil wars are currently  raging in Libya, Syria and Iraq, and the US and  
Iran now find themselves on the same side against ISIS—perhaps to their  
mutual dismay.  Gaza is struggling to recover from its recent  
decimation, and  there seems to be no realistic prospects  
for   Israeli-Palestinian peace in the foreseeable future.  So how  
should our movements for peace, justice and democracy respond to  these  
developments?  And what might a constructive US Mid East policy look like?

Shelagh Foreman from  Massachusetts Peace Action will review  the ISIS  
crisis, Obama’s response, and the  impact of both on the   US-Iran  
nuclear negotiations. These talks  aim to prevent Iranian acquisition of  
nuclear weapons in exchange for ending US economic  sanctions, and  have  
been opposed from the beginning by hardliners in Washington, Jerusalem and  
Tehran.  But since the deadline for any agreement is November 24,  all our  
Congressional representatives will  soon have to weigh in as well.

Mitchell Silver from the Workmen’s Circle will speak on  the continuing   
illegal Israeli settlements in  the Occupied Territories,  and  the uphill  
struggle for  a democratic  2 state   resolution  of the conflict  
through mutual self-determination —and those in the US and elsewhere who  
oppose it.  He has taught philosophy at UMass Boston since 1982, is the  
author of /A Plausible God/ and other works on secular Jewish identity,   
and  a frequent contributor to /Jewish Currents./
