Irish Anti War Movement statement on the slaughter in Eastern Ghouta

IRISH ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT (IAWM) PRESS RELEASE: 21 FEBRUARY 2018

Irish Anti War Movement statement on the slaughter in Eastern Ghouta

The Irish Anti-War Movement said today that the slaughter that is now taking place in Eastern Ghouta, as a result of the bombing of the civilian population by the Russian-backed Assad regime is utterly horrific and should stop immediately. While accurate casualty figures are difficult to ascertain it is clear that hundreds of lives, among them large numbers of children, have being lost.

The ‘explanation’ offered by the Assad regime that they are responding to the killing of six people in government-controlled areas of eastern Damascus earlier this week by shells fired from Eastern Ghouta is not acceptable. Even if it were true the response would be completely disproportionate. The Syrian military said it carried out "precision strikes" on areas from which the shells were launched. This claim is laughable and no more credible than such claims made by the US when bombing Iraq or Afghanistan.

“In reality the massacre in Eastern Ghouta, an area containing 400,000 people, is a continuation of the policy pursued by the tyrannical Assad regime for over six years - of killing any Syrians who do not accept its rule. This policy along with interventions by foreign militaries, has resulted in the death of approximately 500,000 citizens and the displacement of millions more” said John Molyneux, Secretary of the IAWM Steering Committee.

Stop The Slaughter in Syria - Sat 13/01/2018 - 2PM - Protest at Russian Embassy Orwel Road Dublin

The Irish Syria Soladarity Movement is organising a protest at the Russiona Embassy on Sat 13th Janurary 2018 at 2PM.

The situation in Ghouta and Idlib is dire. Every day there are more news of bombing and killing of civilians including many children.

The Irish Anti-War Movement has marched from the Russian to the US embassy in the past and is opposition to all bombings and foreign military intervention. As the defeat of ISiS (at least in military terms) is celebrated, the situation in Syria is changing. The regime has hugely escalated its bombing campaign while the US is continuing its involvement through its local partners.

Reports from Syria are grim. Isis/terrorism was a in a way a common excuse for all waring parties, foreign and Syrian. Indeed, what Isis and other sectarian/counter-revolutionary forces did is horrible and we must condemn all, but today we see yet again the regime and Russia as the leading force in bombing hospitals, civilian infrastructure and killing civilians.
