The ANSWER Coalition New Mexico hosts Richard Becker and Greg Mello as they speak on Russiagate, Syria and war. Light refreshments provided.
The media continues to brandish baseless allegations against Russia, creating public opinion useful to the U.S. war machine. “Russiagate” began as a way to avoid taking responsibility for the Democratic party failure in the 2016 elections. And with thousands of US troops currently occupying one-third of Syrian territory, the US war on Syria continues as one among many endless US wars.
Join the ANSWER Coalition New Mexico on Friday the 25th to learn about why “Russiagate” is a political hoax, but one that is reorienting US foreign policy towards a larger, dangerous, war. We will also discuss why Americans must oppose the ongoing war on Syria, how war in general is related to the US military industrial complex, and what we must do to rebuild the antiwar movement here at home.
** Richard Becker, Western Region Coordinator of the ANSWER Coalition and a leading member of the Party for Socialism and Liberation, will discuss the phenomenon of "Russiagate," the new McCarthyism, that is being used to build a consensus in the US for military confrontation with Russia, as well to smear the Left, the Black liberation movement, and to attack independent third political parties, like the PSL. Becker has authored the PSL publications, "Imperialism in the 21st Century" and "Palestine, Israel and the US empire," and both will be available.
** Greg Mello of the Los Alamos Study Group will be speaking on the bipartisan war drive for US empire and how these wars do not actually benefit Americans. He will also discuss the US war on Syria, and how the chemical attack allegations on the Syrian government are not backed by evidence. The Los Alamos Study Group is based in New Mexico, and its work places nuclear weapons in the context of aggression abroad and the militarization of our society at home.
The Revolution Organizing Center is a wheel-chair accessible space, and has gender-neutral restrooms.
Light food and beverages will be provided.
