Left and Right Unite Against Escalating Syria War

SyrianWarIn a statement, the office of Congresswoman Barbara Lee [D-Calif.] states that she, “members of the CPC [Congressional Progressive Caucus] Peace and Security Taskforce, and Congressman Walter Jones [R-NC] will hold a press conference on Tuesday, March 21st at 1 p.m. [at the House Triangle] opposing the escalating U.S. involvement in the Syrian Civil War. For more than 15 years, the U.S. has been engaged in an ever-expanding war in the Middle East. President Trump recently deployed 400 troops to Syria and reports indicate that the Pentagon is planning to send 1,000 additional troops in the coming weeks, marking the latest front in this endless war.”

The news conference is scheduled to be livestreamed from Congresswoman Lee’s Facebook page.
