Program Title: Controlling the Narrative on Syria
Description: On this week’s Global Research News Hour, following two weeks of extensive violence orchestrated by Turkey on the region bordering it to the south, we turn our attention to Syria, and the ongoing campaign of regime change by Western nations, including Canada. In our first half hour, political commentator and Middle East expert Laith Marouf provides some historical context to the Turkish military campaign against the Kurds and the agreement brokered recently to resolve that situation.
We next hear from a member of the Syrian diaspora in Canada, Majd Zooda about the removal of Waseem Ramli from a high profile Syrian representative post and what it means for Syrian and non-Syrian Canadians.
Finally, we re-air part of an interview by Chris Cook of CFUV’s Gorilla-Radio with Journalist Vanessa Beeley about her August article on Canadian human rights lawyer Irwin Cotler and his championing of the White Helmets.

Host(s): Michael Welch, Chris Cook
Featured Speakers/Guests: Vanessa Beeley, Laith Marouf, Majd Zooda
