Prospects for Syria: Revolution and Counterrevolution

"The Syrian people’s struggle continues. After the fall of Aleppo, the future of Syria, the Middle East and the world is set to move from bad to worse. But we cannot afford to abandon the Syrians who are subjected to daily assaults and long-term displacement at the hands of Assadist and ISIS brutality and their respective apologists. We are hoping you'll join us in learning about the Syrian people’s existential struggle and the overwhelming obstacles to bringing about justice and peace. The international researchers we have assembled at the University of Toronto on February 9 will share much needed insight and critical analysis.

Our speakers will include:

- Joseph Daher, author of Hezbollah: The Political Economy of Lebanon's Party of God (2016)
- Leila Al-Shami, co-author of Burning Country: Syrians in Revolution and War (2016)
- Shiar Neyo, London-based Kurdish-Syrian activist
- Mostafa Henaway, Montreal-based Palestinian solidarity activist and organizer with the Immigrant Workers Centre

The panel will be moderated by Dr. Jens Hanssen, Associate Professor of Arab Civilization at the University of Toronto, and a member of Toronto's Syrian Solidarity Collective

This event is co-hosted by No One Is Illegal (Toronto), Upping the Anti: A Journal of Theory and Action, and the Syrian Solidarity Collective
