Report on Syria with Judy Bello
August 30, 2016 - 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
A Peace and Fact-Finding Delegation, organized by the U.S. Peace Council (USPC) just returned from a week-long visit to Syria. The delegation met with representatives of numerous NGOs, heads of industry, religious leaders and civil society, high-level leaders of the Syrian government, and it held an extended private meeting with President Bashar al Assad.
The delegation’s findings could not be more timely as the world watched the Obama administration escalating violence and bombing in Libya and threatening to escalate its overt military role in Syria. These violent actions take place while the Syrian government and its allies are closing in on the various foreign-funded terrorist groups that have plagued the people of Syria for over 5 years.
Activist and Political Analyst Judy Bello of Rochester, a member of the Administrative Committee, United National Antiwar Coalition (UNAC) and member of the 7 person USPC delegation, will host a report-back. A few years ago Bello traveled with Code Pink to the Waziristan region of Pakistan to meet with surviving family members of Reaper drone victims. Bello was also among the very first to be arrested, tried and jailed for protesting Hancock Air Force Base’s s hunter/killer Reaper drones.
