This Amherst Political Union event features Tommy Raskin, a writer based in the D.C. area, where he works on Middle East policy as a Young Fellow at the Friends Committee on National Legislation. A skeptic of empire, Mr. Raskin has written for both progressive and libertarian publications in hopes of promoting a diverse coalition for peace and against militarism.
Mr. Raskin's recent works have appeared at Antiwar.com and CounterPunch.org, where he has decried the U.S. government's occupation of Afghanistan and advocated a U.S.-Russia rapprochement. In a mixture of interviews, prose writings and poems, Mr. Raskin has also explored the harmful effects of U.S. military involvement in Yemen, Syria and East Timor.
This event is free and open to the public.
