Come hear presentations and discussion on the role of U.S. imperialism in Colombia and Syria:

Colombia recently finished negotiating a Peace Accord between the FARC-EP and the Colombian government. But when put to a plebiscite it lost. Why would the people vote against peace in Colombia after 54 years of war. It is important to look at the character of the many years of war against the people and the role of the US in financing and directing that war. Was it really a War on Drugs, why are there 7 US military bases in Colombia, who was really responsible for the violence?
Presented by Alice Dodge Loaiza who lived many years in Colombia as an activist and now works with Marcha Patriótica - Capítulo California

Judy Greenspan of Workers World Party - Bay Area will talk about the current situation in Syria, clarifying the US role in the devastating war and upheaval in that country. Judy will describe the growing worldwide movement demanding US/NATO Hands Off Syria and the right of self-determination of the Syrian people to decide their future.

Refreshments will be served. The space is wheelchair accessible.
