IAWM PROTEST AGAINST MILITARY STRIKE ON SYRIA AT US EMBASSY, TUESDAY 10 SEPTEMBER, 5.30-7.00pm

IAWM PRESS RELEASE – 10 SEPTEMBER 2013

• REMEMBER IRAQ – DON’T ATTACK SYRIA!


• IAWM PROTEST AGAINST MILITARY STRIKE ON SYRIA AT US EMBASSY, TUESDAY 10 SEPTEMBER, 5.30-7.00pm


• SPEAKERS: RICHARD BOYD BARRETT TD, JOE HIGGINS TD, ROGER COLE (PANA), GLENDA CIMINO (US CITIZEN) and others


• AID FOR THE REFUGEES & PEACEFUL DIALOGUE – NOT MORE WAR!


• NO TO THE SYRIAN PEOPLE BEING USED AS PAWNS IN SECTARIAN STRIFE AND IMPERIALIST BRINKMANSHIP

The Irish Anti-war Movement (IAWM) issued a statement today announcing a protest at the US Embassy this evening 10 September from 5.30pm against the looming attack by the US military on Syria.

The statement noted that the US, Israeli and other western governments wish to wreak further violence on the Syrian people by threatening military strikes that will probably not weaken the Assad regime, but will only stoke further the sectarian civil war that could ignite the whole Middle East in violent conflagration and lead to serious military confrontation between the world’s so-called superpowers.

The IAWM statement acknowledged the horrific violence of the Assad dictatorship, and indeed of certain rebel elements, with both sides supported by different imperial powers and regional autocratic regimes but noted that the US and other western powers bombing the country is no solution. The US Government has no moral authority to call for military action against Syria.

The statement also noted that those Syrians who protested in March 2011 have somehow been erased out of the equation by both the regional and imperial powers edging for dominance, and by much of the mainstream media.

Radio interview of Yasser Munif: inside the Syrian Revolution and What the Left Must Do

A Conversation with Yasser Munif: Inside the Syrian Revolution and What the Left Must Do

Dr. Yasser Munif, professor at Emerson College, has recently visited Syria, witnessed the revolution there, and has spoken and written about it (including an interview with scholar Nigel Gibson at Jadaliyya.) He talks about what he saw, the troubles facing revolutionaries in Syria, the very oppositional distinction between revolutionaries and jihadists, and more. And he talked about the Left’s perception of what’s going on, and how so many are getting it wrong on Syria.

Remember Iraq... Don't Attack Syria!

Date: 10 September 17:30 | Location: US Embassy Dublin 42 Elgin Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4

Given the recent developments and the forthcoming vote in the US congress on military intervention in Syria, this even has now been rescheduled for Tuesday, at the US embassy.

There will be further details posted but the date and time are now confirmed.

Regardless of what we think of the Assad regime and its crimes we should oppose this intervention which will only make matters worse and is only designed to further imperialist interests.

Please support this protest and spread the word. Invite your friends.

If you can't make it at 5.30, please join us after this time whenever you can make until 7PM

All welcome!

SOLIDARITY PROTEST WITH EGYPTIAN PEOPLE TODAY AT 2PM AT EGYPTIAN EMBASSY, CLYDE ROAD, DUBLIN 4.

IAWM PRESS RELEASE – 17 AUGUST 2013

SOLIDARITY PROTEST WITH EGYPTIAN PEOPLE TODAY AT 2PM AT EGYPTIAN EMBASSY, CLYDE ROAD, DUBLIN 4.

• IAWM CONDEMNS INDISCRIMINATE MASSACRE OF CIVILIANS AND IMPOSITION OF STATE OF EMERGENCY BY EGYPTIAN MILITARY

• STOP THE SLAUGHTER, STOP THE KILLING

• NO TO THE STOKING OF SECTARIAN STRIFE BY EITHER SIDE – FOR REAL INCLUSIVE DEMOCRACY NOW

• DON’T LET THE MILITARY DESTROY THE REVOLUTION - NO TO THE COUNTER REVOLUTION

• END MILITARY AID TO EGYPT FROM USA AND REGIONAL DESPOTIC REGIMES

The Irish Anti-war Movement (IAWM) issued a statement today condemning the continuing massacre of peaceful civilians including many women and children by the Egyptian military and called for a solidarity protest today at the Egyptian Embassy, 12 Clyde Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4.

The statement noted in particular deep concern for civilians, including four Irish citizens, trapped in a mosque surrounded by gun toting police.

The statement condemned the ongoing brutal assault by the Egyptian military that is firing indiscriminately into crowds of protesting civilians. It noted that the violence by the military is reversing the optimism and gains of the revolution of January 2011 and is stoking sectarian tension amongst an ever increasing polarized Egyptian population.

The statement further noted that the military have opportunistically used the power of the people on the streets on 30 June to reassert its authority and take control back from the people.

SOLIDARITY PROTEST WITH PEOPLE OF EGYPT THIS SATURDAY 2PM AT EGYPTIAN EMBASSY, 12 CLYDE ROAD, BALLSBRIDGE, DUBLIN 4.

IAWM PRESS RELEASE – 14 AUGUST 2013

• IAWM CONDEMNS MASSACRE OF CIVILIANS AND IMPOSITION OF STATE OF EMERGENCY BY EGYPTIAN MILITARY

• SOLIDARITY PROTEST WITH PEOPLE OF EGYPT THIS SATURDAY 2PM AT EGYPTIAN EMBASSY, 12 CLYDE ROAD, BALLSBRIDGE, DUBLIN 4.

• CALLS FOR IRISH GOVERNMENT TO CONDEMN EGYPTIAN MILITARY

The Irish Anti-war Movement (IAWM) issued a statement today condemning the massacre of at least 150 civilians including many women and children by the Egyptian military and called for a solidarity protest this Saturday at the Egyptian Embassy, 12 Clyde Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4.

The statement noted that this is the third massacre of civilians by the Egyptian military since the military overthrow of the elected Government of Mohammed Morsi following massive popular protests last month. Despite the anti democratic and authoritarian nature of the Morsi led Muslim Brotherhood Government these horrific acts by the Egyptian military have nothing to do with restoring democracy. It is instead about stamping down dissent, sending a message to all protesters and asserting its undemocratic control over the populace.

The statement noted deep concern at the manner of these attacks, the ferocity of the killings (with many people reported as being shot in the head by snipers) and the precedent they set for possible future acts by the military against anybody who wishes to protest.
