Trump, Clinton, Sanders and the future of US wars - Phyllis Bennis in conversation with film-maker Amir Amirani
17 May | 7PM
George Fox Room, Friends House
173 Euston Road, London
Organised by: Stop the War Coalition
Prospects for the US election are worrying for those who are against military interventions. The two leading candidates (Trump and Clinton) both have hawkish tendencies. Donald Trump's campaign has been marked by bigotry and xenophobia, while Hilary Clinton has been central to the continuation of the "War on Terror".
Only the campaign of Bernie Sanders has reflected the anti-war sentiments that are shared by millions of Americans.
Stop the War Coalition is organising an event with the prominent US writer and activist Phyllis Bennis in conversation with renowned film-maker Amir Amirani about the prospects for US foreign policy and the US war agenda in light of the astonishing US presidential primaries.
Phyllis Bennis is a fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, D.C. and has been a political commentator at CNN, PBS News Hour, MSNBC, Democracy Now etc. She has also contributed to various publications including The Nation, The New York Times, Washington Post and USA Today.
