Normally have the OMJP meetings on the 2nd & 4th Wednesdays of each month.
There has been a lot of activity in the past few weeks and we will look at how those events went.
We have sponsored some recent events such as the talk by Sonja Wentz and Peter Bohmer on Greece and Turkey on Monday 9/9/13.  We also have other events scheduled for September and October.
At our last meeting we decided to have a short study groups on the important issues of the day.  The overwhelming issue at the present time is the possible attack by the US on Syria.  We decided to have the first half hour from 6:30-7PM be focused on a short reading and discussion.
 At 7PM we will switch to the regular meeting and planning for our events and actions.  During the last week there have been several emails about the current events.  Peter sent out a reading from the Nation that should be the first reading.
Here are some of the readings that some people have sent to the list in the past two weeks.  Click on the links if you wish to read them. 

1) excellent on internal dynamics, bankruptcy and murderousness of Assad regime but against U.S. military intervention-a little dated

2) One of the more thoughtful articles I have seen, Peter

3)  NSFWCORP (Not Safe For Work Corporation) seems like a very worthwhile online publication to support. 
4) Zoltan Grossman, “Why Kosovo Is (and Isn’t) a Precedent for Syria”
