.... */How should we respond to the new US war in Iraq and Syria and the
     dangers this war may unleash in our violent world?/* 

The U.S. attacks on Syria launched Sept. 22 are a disastrous setback for  
peace, for the rule of law, and for sound U.S. foreign policy.  Why did the  
US launch them, how can we stop them,  and what are the nonviolent  
alternatives we should advocate?

.... */How do we build on the convergence of peace, social justice and
     climate groups that created the gigantic climate march in New York on
     September 21?/*

This new emergency in the Middle East drives home once again the need for the  
climate movement, the peace movement, and the movements for social and racial  
justice to create a mass movement around the inter-related crisis of climate,  
peace, vast social inequality and democracy. 

*No one is better qualified to address these questions than Medea Benjamin  
(who, it just so happens, has recently returned from her trip to Iran)*

Medea Benjamin is a cofounder of both CODEPINK and the international human  
rights organization Global Exchange.  Benjamin is the author of eight books.  
Her latest book is  /Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control/, and she has  
been campaigning to stop the use of killer drones. Her work for justice in  
Israel/Palestine includes taking numerous delegations to Gaza after the 2008  
Israeli invasion, organizing the Gaza Freedom March in 2010, participating in  
the Freedom Flotillas./ New York Newsday/ describes her as "one of  
America's most committed -- and most effective -- fighters for human rights".

*Don’t **miss this opportunity at this especially dangerous moment to hear  
this leading thinker and activist for peace and social justice.*
