NO U.S. WAR ON SYRIA!
TAKE ACTION NOW AND ORGANIZE EMERGENCY RESPONSE IF THERE IS AN ATTACK
and organize actions before an attack
USS Dwight Eisenhower off the
coast of Syria
Secretary of State Kerry's demagogic speech on August 26 on the situation in
Syria makes it clear that the U.S. is serious about military action against
the people of Syria. Polls show that the overwhelming majority of Americans
are against any further intervention. However, as with the Iraq War, the
government shows contempt and disregard for the will of the people.
UNAC calls for all antiwar and social justice organizations to prepare for a
response if there is any military action by the U.S. in Syria. We call upon
all organizations to mobilize to take action opposing U.S. intervention
before any military action. We also call upon all organizations to work
together and make plans for an emergency response on the day after any
military action against Syria. If your organization is making such plans,
please <https://www.unacpeace.org/Syria_actions.html> click here and fill
out the form so we can let others know.
The issue of chemical weapons is the cover the U.S. and its allies use to
justify their illegal and immoral acts of war, just as the specter of WMD's
were used as the rationale for attacking Iraq. Their real mission, as in
Iraq, Libya, and elsewhere, is to force regime change in order to control
energy resources and get compliant regimes in the region. The claim that a
bloody military attack on a country that poses no threat to the U.S. is
needed to offer humanitarian assistance is the height of hypocrisy. The
result of the "humanitarian" invasion and ten-year occupation of Iraq is
over a million Iraqi deaths and a country in ruin.
Military intervention will not bring peace to a people already engulfed in
terrible violence and destruction. Such intervention can only lead to more
death and devastation.
We must do all we can to stay the hand of the U.S. government as it moves
towards military intervention in Syria. Please start organizing now for
actions to oppose U.S. intervention in Syria.
Say NO to another US War!
Hands OFF Syria!
Actions are already being planned in a number of areas for Thursday, August,
29 including, New York City (6pm, Times Sq.), Chicago, Dearborn, MI, Los
Angeles and other areas. UNAC will put out a comprehensive list.
