The Syrian Revolution
Solidarity in a Time of Crisis

Socialism 2015

July 02, 2015

Activists from the Global Campaign of Solidarity with the Syrian Revolution and the Revolutionary Left Current (Syria) will be video conferencing from Turkey, Switzerland, and Spain to discuss the many reasons that make organizing in solidarity with the Syrian Revolution challenging but possible. They will examine the politics of the US and International Left towards the Syrian Revolution, and argue that the Left should take a clear stance in support of the Syrian Revolution and against imperialism, dictatorship, and the jihadist groups who have been undermining the activists on the ground.

They will also talk about the grassroots organizing and the different groups that are currently operating in the face of a vicious counter-revolution—from the Assad regime and its allies on one hand, and the reactionary forces (like ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra) on the other -- and in the context of an increasingly complex intervention by foreign powers.
