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

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.

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.


Would you like to:

1. Download all or part of the Essential Dissent archive in a few clicks via OneDrive?

2. Access my audio in .wav format, which is the highest quality and preferred if you do your own edits for later conversion to another format?

3. Download episodes that have disappeared from R4A?

4. Access extras such as conference brochures which give more detailed information re the presenters, panels and sponsoring organizations?

5. Continue doing all of the above even if R4A becomes defunct?

Send an email to wvought at gmail dot com, requesting the archive link. Include Essential Dissent Archive in the subject line.

If you’re affiliated with a radio station, please tell me your radio station’s call letters and the name of your show. If you’re a podcaster, please tell me the name of your podcast. And if you’re an end user who just wants to stream or download some interesting audio, that’s cool too.

The link will give you access to the Essential Dissent archive (including all subsequent episodes) for as long as the archive is available on OneDrive. (If I ever have reason to change the link I'll send you the new one.)

A big advantage of this system is that if R4A ever stops working or vanishes altogether, I’ll still be able to post new episodes to the archive, and you’ll still be able to download them. In that case I'll send a notification when I post a new episode (but you can opt out of receiving notifications at any time).

You are welcome to share the link with others, but since I will then not have their email address they will not receive notifications, nor will I be able to send them a new link should that become necessary.

No spam, no fee, no BS, and I’ll remove your email address from my list upon request.
