POSTPONED – Sanctions Kill

Thu March 19, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Due to Coronavirus concerns, this event has been postponed.

Regarding Coronavirus Concerns

US sanctions are not an alternative to war. They make war more likely. On the anniversary of the 2003 invasion of Iraq, join us for an honest discussion of US sanctions. We’ll explore the human cost.

Sanctions on Iraq in the 1990’s led to the deaths of approximately 500,000 children. Sec. of State Madeleine Albright said it was, “worth it.” We went to war with Iraq anyway.

It’s time to change the public perception of economic sanctions. Along with war, sanctions are a tool in the US regime change playbook — one that causes intolerable consequences.
