The War in Syria, Debunking Lies and Fake News: Eva Bartlett’s Canada Tour

Region:
In-depth Report:

We are very pleased to inform you that the Canadian Peace Congress and the Syria Solidarity Movement are co-sponsoring this speaking tour featuring Eva Bartlett, the courageous independent Canadian journalist who has been exposing the lies and misinformation spread by Western imperialist governments and the mainstream corporate-controlled media about the ongoing conflict in Syria. 

The speaking tour itself will bring Eva, along with anti-war activist Ken Stone and author Stephen Gowans among others, to Hamilton, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal from Jan. 24-28.

Author Mark Taliano will be present at the Hamilton event, Michel Chossudovsky of Global Research and Yves Engler will be present at the Montreal event. 

Eva Bartlett is an independent Canadian journalist from Fergus, Ontario, who has visited Syria and covered the war there on six separate occasions since 2014, including two months in summer 2016 and one month at the end of 2016. She writes for and speaks on different media outlets but always maintains her blog, In Gaza, which she started some years ago while living for a period of three years in Gaza.

Hamilton will be the first stop on Bartlett’s Central Canadian tour, organized by the Syria Solidarity Movement (Canada), the Canadian Peace Congress, and the HCSW.  The other cities are Toronto (January 25), Ottawa (January 27), and Montreal (January 28). The tour is entitled

“The War on Syria: debunking lies and fake news…and finding a path to peace” and is intended to help Canadians clear up any confusion they may have about what actually transpired during the liberation of Aleppo, in particular, and during the past five years in Syria, in general.
