Three survivors of the poison gas massacres in Syria last summer are scheduled to speak Tuesday at the University of Memphis.
“Voices from Syria” will be held from 5:30-8:30 p.m. in the University Center Ballroom. Refreshments will be served. The free event is being sponsored by the Syrian American Council and the Muslim Student Association of the U of M.
Last August, the Syrian regime attacked civilians with poison gas in two towns near Damascus, killing 1,400 people. Afterward, the regime promised to give up the weapons to avoid a U.S. military strike.
