The Ongoing Crisis in Syria

EVENT: The Ongoing Crisis in Syria

On January 20, Turkey began its assault on Afrin, one of three Kurdish-majority cantons that make up a semi-autonomous region where Kurds predominate, commonly known as Rojava. The consequence of this intervention? Escalated tensions across the region, and more suffering for victims on all sides. Turkey’s invasion is a new front in the seven-year-old civil war in Syria, and a further complication in a twisted situation in which different forces of counterrevolution are both collaborating with each other and competing to project their interests, with ordinary people on all sides in Syria paying the deadly price. Join us for a conversation about recent events in Syria.
