Wed June 10, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
Presentation by Sunjeev Bery
A webinar sponsored by the Raytheon anti-war Campaign and the MAPA Middle East Working Group
Learn how Freedom Forward, a new bold initiative of the Center for International Policy, is bringing international pressure to bear to end international and elite support for Saudi Arabia. In the process you will learn important information about Saudi Arabia’s international connections and its strategies and goals for its future.
Saudi Arabia is host of the 2020 G20 summit of the wealthiest nations in the world. The G20 summit brings together diplomats, business leaders, and civil society representatives. This year there is growing opposition to Saudi Arabia as host. Sunjeev will discuss specific campaign opportunities for targeting governments, businesses, and organizations that support the Saudi G20.
Sunjeev Bery is the Executive Director of Freedom Forward, where he works to end U.S. alliances with Saudi Arabia and other nondemocratic governments, including dictators, kings, and apartheid systems.
Before launching Freedom Forward, Bery was advocacy director for the Middle East and North Africa at Amnesty International USA. Prior to his time at Amnesty International, Bery served as a regional director for the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California.
His commentaries on U.S. foreign policy and human rights have appeared in a range of U.S. and global media, and he has made numerous appearances on U.S., European, and Middle Eastern television, radio, and other news outlets.
