Peace Action is cosponsoring a speaking tour with former weapons inspector Scott Ritter, media analyst Jeff Cohen and Ambassador Edward Peck. I saw Ritter and Cohen speak when they came through the Bay Area in 2006, and they offered an interesting, engaging, often sobering yet inspiring take on US foreign policy and the future of our relations with Iran. I’ll also be interested to hear more about Ritter’s recommendations for the peace movement from his new book Waging Peace: The Art of War for the Antiwar Movement. The speakers will be discussing aspects of US-Iran relations that the mainstream media tends to ignore, including reports from Ritter’s recent fact finding mission to Iran.
If you attend the event in Walnut Creek, be sure to stop by the Peace Action West table and sign our petition to stop new nuclear weapons.
