Join us as Syrian-American Mazen Halabi shares his views on the Syria crisis. He’ll give a historical perspective on Syria’s involvement in the Mideast, talk about the impact of the Arab Spring and address geopolitical interests, including those of the United States, on Syria’s future. Halabi left his home country of Syria for the United States after the 1982 Hama massacre, in which more than 40,000 people were killed by then-President Hafez Assad. He now works in the IT industry and serves as public relations director for Watan, a Syrian civil society organization.
