Building Solidarity with the Arab Spring
Manama, Bahrain Deraa, Syria Sanaa, Yemen 
Tahrir Square, Egypt Benghazi, Libya Tunis, Tunisia

No development in recent years has exemplified the global fight for justice as have the Arab Revolutions of 2011. Millions upon millions of people have, with incredible courage, defied autocrats and dictators who have ruled repressively for decades.

Yet for all the incredible successes of the Revolutions, questions remain about the way forward. Mubarak, Ben Ali, and Saleh are gone; but what about their regimes, which remain largely intact and continue to attempt to roll back the revolutions? How can the struggles in Bahrain, Libya, Syria, and Yemen, which have been confronted by brutal repressive violence, advance and win?

Moreover, we solidarity activists in the U.S. face questions for our own activity. What can we do to provide practical solidarity to the Revolutions?

Come to this organizing meeting to plan a teach-in on the Arab Spring in the early Fall, and bring your friends!

 

Initiated by a broad group of Arab Spring solidarity activists. We will start collecting organizational endorsements at the planning meeting.
