'HANDS OFF SYRIA EMERGENCY RALLY
We, members of the Connolly Youth Movement call upon politically conscious activists to join us in holding a solidarity rally with the people of Syria on Saturday 20th at 7pm on Daunt Square. Syria, like Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan before it has been subject to intense outside manipulation and even outright military attack.
The United States along with it's allies in NATO and the EU forcefully and unilaterally remove, change or attack governments and states that they do not agree with and the Syrian Arab Republic is no different. Additionally it is worth noting that the United States has several highly armed and oil-wealthy allies in the region as well. These include Turkey, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain and more. All of these countries will act in the interest of the strategies of the United States when necessary.
So in 2009 when Syria did not agree to have a pipeline coming from Qatar through Syria to supply Europe with gas but instead opted to allow Iran be the main provider, a disagreement of serious proportions began to grow. Syria's government did not play into the vested interests of the Western orientated elite. Bashar Al-Assad and the Syrian state were obstacles that needed to be removed.
As Libya fell into chaos, anarchy and complete destitution the same powers that facilitated this began to make their moves in Syria. Weapons, mercenaries and aid flooded the country creating armed rebellions everywhere The West quickly began to talk about human rights concerns while arming Islamic Fundamentalists (like they did in Afghanistan starting in 1979).
In 2013, a chemical attack was perpetrated against a village and the West, as before, attempted to utilize this as a pretext for further military action. This information was clearly debunked and it was actually proven by a Hague watch-dog that it was the rebels who used the chemical weapons to perpetrate the attack. In fact, both the United States Department of State and other international bodies CONFIRMED that the Syrian government had submitted all their materials needed for production of chemical weapons.
This did not deter the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia or the West from continuing to funnel money to the rebels in Syria. The CIA stated they had input about a billion dollars a year to these rebels and at times didn't even know who they were.
Only last week, the United States under the direction of Trump support of almost all mass media and the Democrat Party launched 59 Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airbase that has been attacking Islamic State positions. A clear and direct act of war by one country against another. The disgusting single vision that the Western Axis promotes of itself as saviors and guardians of democracy and freedom is a lie that we will challenge over and over until it is debunked.
It is worth mentioning that the main leaders of the EU (France and Germany) not only gave their approval for this attack but have a long running record of also participating in similar attacks on other countries, notably in participation of the bombing of Libya.
Ireland too is not without fault and serves as a notable location where NATO / US ships and planes can constantly refuel and pass. We are complicit in the terror perpetrated against the Middle East and worldwide by the United States by facilitating it.
We will stand this evening in solidarity with the victims of the war. The refugees who have had to lose their homes due to the constant and unending interference in Syria. The victims who have died due to the perpetual and seemingly never ending conflict.
We stand by the fact that if the United States along with it's allies was genuinely concerned for refugees and for the people of Syria, they would not fund terrorists from radical backgrounds that so often commit acts of savage barbarity both in the Middle East and Europe itself.
HANDS OFF SYRIA!
DEATH TO IMPERIALISM!
