Coalition for Peace Action Welcomes Phyllis Bennis

IPS Fellow Phyllis Bennis will present and lead a Q&A on her book "Understanding ISIS & the New Global War on Terror: A Primer" at the CFPA Membership Welcome Gathering.
A book launch party and signing of IPS fellow Phyllis Bennis’ latest Middle East primer, focused on ISIS and President Obama’s war, which is supposedly only against the violent extremists of ISIS, but is in fact being waged against whole populations in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya and beyond.
