Following the decision taken at our last protest at the Daíl, the Irish Anti-War Movement is organising a peace rally at the Russian and US Embassies.
Assemble and protest at 2PM, Saturday, 19th November at the Russian Embassy, followed by a march to the US Embassy and a final protest.
The Irish Anti-War demands an end to the bombing in Syria.
Syria’s has become the worst humanitarian crisis of our time. Since 2011 there are:
- Almost 500,000 dead
- 4,800,000 refugees
- 6,100,000 internally displaced
- 13,500,000 in need of humanitarian aid.
Physicians for Human Rights have said, “Bombing civilians is a war crime. Targeting hospitals is a war crime. Stripping medical supplies from aid convoys meant for civilians is a war crime...We cannot lose sight of the calculated commission of war crimes and crimes against humanity across Syria.”
The IAWM says: STOP THIS WAR NOW!
• We call for all parties to the war to agree to an immediate and permanent ceasefire.
• We demand a halt to the bombing and the opening of safe channels for humanitarian aid.
• We demand an end to all foreign intervention in Syria and an end to all arms sales to Syria.
• We call on the Irish government to end its silence and summon the US and Russian Ambassadors to demand they cease their military involvement in Syria.
• We demand that refugees receive sanctuary as needed in Europe and other countries.

STOP BOMBING SYRIA – IAWM PEACE MARCH 19TH NOVEMBER FROM RUSSIAN EMBASSY TO US EMBASSY

IAWM PRESS RELEASE 18 NOVEMBER 2016

STOP BOMBING SYRIA – PEACE MARCH 19TH NOVEMBER FROM RUSSIAN EMBASSY TO US EMBASSY

The Irish Anti-War Movement is holding a Peace March for Syria between the Russian and U.S. Embassies this Saturday 19 November in order to highlight the intense suffering of the Syrian people and the willful perpetuation of the war by Russia and the U.S. and other western powers.

The event will begin with a rally at the Russian Embassy, 184-186 Orwell Rd, Dublin 14 at 2.00pm followed by the peace march to the US Embassy on Elgin Road arriving approximately at 3.30pm.

Speakers so far include former MEP Patricia Mc Kenna, Richard Boyd Barrett TD (President IAWM), Shannon Peace Activist Ed Horgan and a Syrian refugee. There will also be speakers from Turkey and the US.

The IAWM note that Syria has become a living hell as Russia, the U.S. and other world and regional powers continue to bomb it in an attempt to compete for dominance while shamelessly killing civilians and flooding the region with arms. The IAWM says this must stop now and is calling on all peace and anti-war activists to join it in this Peace March this Saturday to highlight the role of both Russia and the US as the two key players in the military conflagration which has devastated Syria.

The IAWM is calling for a permanent cessation to the bombing in Syria.

Syria’s civil war has created the worst humanitarian crisis of our time. Since 2011, when the war began, half the country’s pre-war population — more than 11 million people — have been killed, wounded or forced to flee their homes. Syria has become a living hell with:

• Almost 500,000 dead
• 4,800,000 have fled as refugees
• 6,100,000 are internally displaced
• 13,500,000 are in desperate need of humanitarian aid.

The war is now heading into a sixth year and could lead to a worldwide conflagration.

The IAWM says: JOIN US IN OUR EFFORTS TO STOP THIS WAR NOW!

Syria has become a living hell as Russia, the U.S. and other world and regional powers continue to bomb it in an attempt to compete for dominance while shamelessly killing civilians and flooding the region with arms.

Physicians for Human Rights have said, “Bombing civilians is a war crime. Targeting hospitals is a war crime. Stripping medical supplies from aid convoys meant for civilians is a war crime. Providing a few hours of calm in one city does not offset the systematic violation of international law, nor does it absolve Syria’s leaders, their Russian counterparts, or any other party to the conflict of their responsibility for perpetrating crimes that have led to one of the worst humanitarian catastrophes of our time. We cannot lose sight of the calculated commission of war crimes and crimes against humanity across Syria.”
