Medea Benjamin will be discussing the US-Saudi alliance, including financial, political, and military ties, and the impact that this relationship with a powerful tyrannical government has on world peace and human rights.

Our conversation will cover issues of historical significance, the current context, and ways that the peace movement may directly approach this issue. A portion of the call will be reserved for Q&A, so please come with questions.
We will also discuss the broader campaign to end the US-Saudi alliance,including the 2016 Summit on Saudi Arabia: Understanding the Kingdom & Its Role, which will be held on March 5 & 6 in Washington, DC.
We look forward to hearing you and members of your organization on the call.
