Emergency Briefing Call on Iraq

When: Tuesday, July 8, 2014, 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Where: Conference Call

We know that there is NO MILITARY SOLUTION to the conflicts in Iraq and Syria. Our movement needs to organize to ensure that we do not repeat the disastrous policies of the past. United for Peace and Justice is hosting an emergency briefing call on Iraq this Tuesday, July 8, at 8 pm EDT/5 pm PDT


Phyllis Bennis (IPS) will be with us to review the recent developments in Iraq and the larger region, offering crucial perspective on challenging the current narrative concerning ISIS, the existing terrorist threat, the legitimacy and motives of the current Iraqi government, and the responsibility the U.S. government bears for the developing conflict. Hear the analysis peace activists need to argue for the only solution to Iraq’s current conflict – a ceasefire, an arms embargo, negotiations involving all the regional players, and a commitment to reconciliation.


Terry Rockefeller (September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows and UFPJ) will offer perspectives on the emerging humanitarian crisis and efforts by Iraqi civil society activists to address the sectarian conflict that is devastating their country.


Rusti Eisenberg (Co-coordinator of UFPJ’s legislative action working group) will discuss on-going efforts to pressure Congress and the White House to reject US military engagement and how peace and justice activists need to move this work forward.



Tuesday, July 8: 8 pm EDT/5 pm PDT.

Call in number: (712) 432-1212

Meeting ID: 446-724-667#

The call will last for 1 hour.


We very much hope you’ll be able to join us. Please RSVP:
