        with which Claiborne is directly involved are strongly against any intervention in Syria. They have positions on Syria that are diametrically opposed to those of Claiborne.

        Don't you find this ironic?

        ‘HANDS OFF SYRIA & IRAN’
        Anti-war protests held in many cities

        At the Federal Building in Los Angeles, people from the anti-war, solidarity and social justice movements, with a large attendance from the Syrian and other Arab-American communities, protested the latest war threats and provocations against Syria on June 30. Among the key organizers of the event was a member of Arab Americans for Syria, an organization which also participated in planning actions around the U.S.

        Socialist and anti-imperialist organizations and activists spoke at the rally, including a member of the Peace and Freedom Party, BAYAN-USA, the International League of Peoples Struggles, the Southern California Immigration Coalition, the Union of Progressive Iranians, Unión del Barrio, Workers World Party, Latinos Against War and the Coalition to Stop FBI Repression. Workers World newspapers with the headline “Hands off Syria” were passed out and well received.

          a delegate.  So my perceptions may differ from yours.

          I spoke to the convention about what was happening in Aleppo today and there was a lot of support for my position.

          Of course the PSL was there, pushing their own candidate and agenda and they didn't like what I said. They are like the WWP you cite above pro-Russian, meaning also pro-Qaddafi, pro-Assad hacks, but why you quote from the WWP here, I have know idea. They have nothing to do with the PFP.

          •  I used that link because it mentions that the (0+ / 0-)

            Peace and Freedom Party spoke at the 'HANDS OFF SYRIA & IRAN' rally. It simply mentions who was involved with the rally - nothing more.

            Was this a "rogue" speaker that was not authorized to speak for the party?
