Hands off Syria! Solidarity with Palestine!
All out for the Spring Actions
Against the Wars at Home and Abroad
Trump has tweeted, “Russia get ready.” He promises a missile attack on Syria. Russia says it will shoot down any missiles and target their source. U.S. and Russian ships have moved into the waters off Syria. The world is in grave danger.
People around the world are looking to see what we here in the U.S. will do. We need to show our unwavering opposition to U.S. war in the streets, now more than ever. Our Spring Actions against the wars at home and abroad will take place this coming weekend - right at this critical moment that can have terrible consequences for the people of Syria and put the U.S. in direct confrontation with Russia.
Meanwhile, Israel has been shooting down unarmed Palestinian protesters as they demand an end to the inhumane blockade of Gaza. More than 30 have been killed and more than 1,000 wounded. We in the U.S. have a special role to play in ending these massacres, since it is U.S. aid and political support for Israel that enables the persecution of the Palestinian people.
At the same time, the police killings of unarmed African-Americans continue unabated. We march to show our solidarity and to demand police accountability and justice.
