Audio from a webinar convened in June of 2021 by the International Action Center (IAC): iacenter.org

On May 26, 2021,14 million Syrians voted in a Presidential election, overwhelmingly reelecting President Bashar al-Assad. An independent, international delegation of observers called the election "the legitimate, democratic expression of the Syrian people" and noted that "for many Syrians, the election represents the imminent ending of the war, the defeat of foreign plots, and hope for the future."

Join 4 participants from the delegation for an eyewitness account of the situation in Syria as the country continues to push back U.S. intervention, reassert its sovereignty, and rebuild after years of imperialist war.

Hosted by Scott Williams 
International Action Center, Participant in 2014 Delegation to Syria

Panelists:

Johnny Achi, E.E.
Co-founder, Arab Americans for Syria

Kobi Guillory
Co-Chair, Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression

Wyatt Miller
Minnesota Anti-War Committee

Ted Kelly
International Action Center
Co-Editor, Tear Down the Walls!

There are 3 versions of this webinar on the R4A server. All are the full edit of the webinar, edited for pacing and content, mostly removal of "um, uh, you know" and false starts.

Version 1: A -24 LUFS Mp3 optimized for RADIO PLAY. No added intro/outro.

Version 2: A -19 LUFS Mp3 optimized for downloading onto a computer or mobile device for INDIVIDUAL USE. Identical content to Version 1, but a louder file encoded at a lower bitrate so it takes up less space.

Version 3: A 55:30 radio-ready -24 LUFS Mp3 with added intro/outro etc.

You can also download these files plus (much larger) .wav files for highest quality at this link:

You can use it to download all or part of the R4A Essential Dissent archive (in at least .wav format) via my OneDrive account, and I plan to continue to post new episodes to that account even if R4A at some point becomes non-functional.
