From the Organizers:

Political Analyst Judith Bello Returns From Syria; Will Speak At ArtRage Gallery August 30

Activist and political analyst, Judith Bello, will report on her recent week-long visit to Syria with a seven-member U.S. Peace Council delegation at 7 p.m., this Tuesday, August 30, 2016 at ArtRage Gallery, 505 Hawley Avenue in Syracuse. The U.S.P.C. delegation met with leaders of various NGOs, religious and civil society groups, as well as high-level government officials. The delegation held an extended private session with President Bashar al Assad.

This was Bello’s second fact-finding mission to Syria. A student of the Middle East and West Asia, Bello has taught in Iraqi Kurdistan and, several years ago, traveled with Code Pink to the Waziristan region of Pakistan to meet with surviving family members of hunter/killer Reaper drone attacks. She was among the very first arrested, tried and jailed protesting Hancock Air Force Base’s Reaper drones. Bello, of Rochester, is on the Administrative Committee of UNAC, the United National Antiwar Coalition.
