Carol Shields Auditorium, Millennium Library, 251 Donald St
You are invited to hear and discuss Canadian journalist Eva Bartlett's talk about Syria, the myths and realities.
We are glad to have Eva in Winnipeg, who has worked as an independent journalist in Syria over several years.
What has really brought most non-terrorist groups to negotiate a path to peace?
What are the prospects for Syria to maintain its sovereignty in the face of Western threats of regime change and massive bombing campaigns?
The mainstream U.S. and Canadian media present only half the facts about this war-torn country, and too often it is the wrong half.
Eva is from Fergus, Ontario and has visited Syria and covered the war there on six separate occasions since 2014, including two months in summer 2016 and one month at the end of 2016. She writes for and speaks on different media outlets but always maintains her blog, In Gaza, which she started some years ago while living for a period of three years in Gaza.
This talk is intended to help Winnipeggers clear up any confusion they may have about what actually transpired during the liberation of Aleppo, in particular, and during the past five years in Syria, in general.
Sponsored by: Manitoba Peace Council, CKUW and Canadian Dimension magazine.
