I was honored to take part in the launch of Freedom Matters! – “a supplemental curriculum developed to help high school students connect the foundations of freedom to today’s global struggles for liberty,” prepared by the wonderful people at the Bush Institute.
The Middle East Institute hosted on November 12, 2014, a screening of the documentary "Syria - A Fire Within." The event was well-attended and featured a discussion with me afterwards. The podcast can be founded here.

The August 27 dual event consisting of the premier of the 40-minute documentary "Syria: A Fire Within" and the official book launch of Ammar Abdulhamid's "The Irreverent Activist" was so well-received that plans for repeat performances are already underway, and will be announced shortly. Meanwhile, we publish more photos from the event provided to us courtesy of Ross Stansfield, the gentle soul responsible for lighting in "A Fire Within."
On August 27, 2014, the DC Arts Center hosted a dual event featuring Ammar Abdulhamid: the first was a short documentary titled “Syria: A Fire Within,” made by the American activist and filmmaker Emanuel Benhamou, and the second was a book-signing of Ammar’s new book “The Irreverent Activist.” The dual event also featured a brief Q&A with Ammar and Emanuel.
Book-signing to take place in the DC Arts Center (2438 18th St, Washington, DC 20009) on August 27 at 7:30 pm (map). RSVPs required as seating is limited. RSVPs should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
