The U.S. Treasury Department says sanctions “accomplish foreign policy and national security goals,” such as the overthrow of the government of Venezuela. A roundtable discussion sponsored by the PSC International Committee will address the questions: Are sanctions a weapon of modern “hybrid war” or a diplomatic tool? Are they non-violent persuasion or a medieval siege? If we oppose U.S. endless wars, should we also oppose U.S. sanctions? The discussion, featuring experts on U.S. foreign policy in Venezuela, Iran and Russia, will be held in the PSC Union Hall (61 Broadway, 16th Floor) on Wednesday, May 1 from 6-8PM. Download a flier .
