U.S. Hands Off Syria! - No War!


All Out Saturday, Sept. 7, Boston!

Rally at Park St. Station (Tremont & Park Sts.), 1:00 PM 


Dear Antiwar and Social Justice Activists,


A U.S. attack on Syria is imminent as the Obama administration presses
Congress to approve a war that the American people and the whole world
rejects. They say it is a limited punitive "surgical strike" against Syrian
President Bashar al-Assad for his alleged use of chemical weapons.  Make no
mistake, any military intervention will be a war against the Syrian people.


To date, neither the U.S. or anyone else has presented credible proof of the
use of Sarin gas by the Syrian government, the current pretext for yet
another war. We certainly know the U.S. government is capable of
manufacturing "evidence", as they did with WMD's in Iraq, so we should
remain skeptical.


More importantly, the U.S. has no political, legal or moral standing to use
force against any nation. The warmaking would-be cop of the world has an
unbroken record of military interventions that have murdered millions to
advance the interests of the ONE PERCENT.  In fact, the U.S. has used and/or
supported the use of biological and chemical warfare all over the world, and
uses and manufactures these and many other weapons, equally horrific.


With yet another war imminent, all antiwar and social justice activists must
assume a mobilization footing and challenge the warmakers in the
administration and in Congress on a daily basis. Protests and campaigns to
demand that Congress votes against war are planned across the country and
indeed, around the world.


All out to oppose any U.S. attack on Syria!  We stand for peace!
