Peace Processes and War Fevers"

NECEF is pleased to announce that Phyllis Bennis,  Fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington D.C., will be delivering the fourth annual James Graff Memorial Lecture.

As a longtime analyst of the region, Bennis will address the current political situation in the Middle East and discuss complex issues including the ongoing U.S.-led military occupation of Afghanistan, the new face of the US presence in Iraq, the current peace talks between the Israeli leadership and the Palestinian Authority, and the prospects of a future war on Iran. Bennis' comprehensive understanding of these longstanding conflicts and expertise on the pressing realities in the Middle East promise a refreshing and relevant perspective.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
