Three years after the Arab Spring protests began, violence in Syria has caused the deaths of thousands of Syrians and created millions of Syrian refugees. In spite of calls by politicians and pundits, the majority of Americans have continued to oppose US military intervention in Syria. Stephen Zunes and Paul Larudee will discuss the roots and development of the current Syrian crisis and suggest possible resolutions. Stephen Zunes is professor of Political Science at the University of San Francisco. Paul Larudee is a founder of the Free Gaza movement and a leader of the Syria Solidarity Movement. Co-sponsored by Palestine-Israel Action Committee, Jewish Voice for Peace - Santa Cruz, Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, and the Resource Center for nonviolence. Cost is $10 - $15 on a sliding scale. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. For further information, call (831) 216-6570
Location : Resource Center for Nonviolence, 612 Ocean Street, Santa Cruz
