Next Saturday, March 11, the Park Street vigil on the Boston Common, from 1
to 2pm, will be a speak-out to stop the wars on Syria & Yemen.  This is in
response to International Hands Off Syria Coalition's call for
international days of action against war and Islamophobia during the week
of March 11-19.

The Pentagon is considering sending more U.S. ground forces to Syria. To
justify this military escalation, the demonization of the Syrian Government
has been intensified though a new wave of misleading propaganda. The most
recent salvo is a sensational yet unfounded report from Amnesty
International, which has been broadcast by media outlets around the world.

In Yemen, the US has long been supporting the Saudi war, which is not only
a war against the Houthi movement, but an atrocious war of hunger and
mayhem against the population and economy of Yemen

All of this aggression must end.  Join the Committee for Peace and Human
Rights and the Hands off Syria Coalition to raise our voices against this
violence.
