HOW TO THINK ABOUT SYRIA? ANTI-IMPERIALISM, ASSAD REGIME BARBARISM, AND THE SEARCH FOR AN ALTERNATIVE

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2013 

6:00-8:00 PM

Westside Peace Center

3916 Sepulveda Blvd. (free parking in rear)

Suite 101-102, press #22 at rear door to get into room

Culver City (LA area)

 

Introducing the discussion:

Mike Pugliese, longtime left observer

Kevin Anderson, author of Marx at the Margins: On Ethnicity, Nationalism, and Non-Western Societies

Mansoor M., Iranian cultural worker

 

The situation in Syria cries out for a comprehensive, dialectical response, not just a knee-jerk anti-interventionism that fails to mention the nature of the Assad regime.  For this reason, the International Marxist-Humanist Organization’s August 30 statement has a long title:

Against U.S Attack on Syria! Against the Assad Regime and Other Reactionary Forces!  For the Grassroots Syrian Revolution!

http://www.internationalmarxisthumanist.org/articles/u-s-attack-syria-assad-regime-reactionary-forces-grassroots-syrian-revolution-international-marxist-humanist-organization

 

These are the kinds of questions that we will address, followed by a free and open discussion:

Can the left fight imperialism at the same time as opposing the Assad regime?

Can it support the Syrian uprising while also opposing fundamentalism?

What effect would a U.S. bombing of Syria have on Iran, including on the reform currents inside that country?
