Panel discussion on the unfolding Syrian war, regional dynamics, and the impact of US influence, featuring PSR's Dr. Bob Gould.
Two accomplished speakers, Reese Erlich and Bob Gould, will deepen our understanding of the unfolding Syrian war, regional dynamics, and the impact of US influence. Questions and schmoozing encouraged; tea and treats provided.
Reese Erlich has covered the Middle East for nearly 30 years as a freelance reporter for Pacifica Radio, NPR, CBC (Canada) and The Progressive, among others. During his five reporting trips to Syria, he interviewed rebel leaders and President Bashar al-Assad twice. Erlich will explain the origins of the Syrian uprising, who the rebels are and how Assad has been able to cling to power.
Bob Gould’s expertise spans biological weapons and their impact on public health and the environment, nuclear nonproliferation, disarmament, and global warming. He has been the president of the San Francisco-Bay Area Chapter of “Physicians for Social Responsibility” since 1989 and chairperson for the “Peace Caucus of the American Public Health Association” for many years.
