Anti-war in Syria demonstration, London, Saturday

This video from Britain says about itself:

April 18, 2013

Bruce Kent – a veteran peace campaigner and vice-president of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) – says the British government should not send weapons to Syria. He urged the government to do more to assist the refugees the Syrian conflict is creating instead. He was speaking in Leicester as part of his national Scrap Trident Tour.

From the site of the Stop the War Coalition in Britain:

National demonstration: No attack on Syria

  1. Stop US/NATO intervention in Syria

    Every U.S. war claims to “punish” a bad act. After the Tonkin Gulf incident and the Vietnam war, the incubator baby massacre in Kuwait and the first Gulf war, the Racak massacre and the Kosovo war, the Iraqi weapons of mass destruction and the second Gulf war, the threat of massacre in Benghazi and the Libyan war, the alleged use of chemical weapons by Syrian Government Forces is the latest pretext invoked to justify an imminent war.

    All the previous pretexts were fabricated or dubious.

    What we know is that 12 members of the Syrian rebel forces were arrested in May in Turkey. The rebels possessed 4.5 pounds of Sarin, the neurotoxin gas that allegedly has been used in the recent attack. What we also know is that United Nations Human Rights investigator Carla Del Ponte declared in May: “according to what we have established so far, it is at the moment opponents of the regime who are using sarin gas”.

    And even if the latest allegations are true, US airstrikes amount to an illegal aggression according to International Law, as the US and UK want to start an onslaught on Syria without a UN mandate. The US and Europe don’t intervene for defending human principles or the Syrian people but for their imperialist interests. Just as in the previous wars, hatred, chaos and destruction is all that can be accomplished by direct U.S. missile strikes against Syria. A US/Nato military action could set the whole region and the world in flames.

    The Syrian Civilian population has been the major victim of all kinds of violence and they definitely don’t need anymore bombing and destruction from the US and NATO.

    We are against all sorts of foreign military intervention, including the militias who turn the struggle into a bloody sectarian violence and threaten the unity of Syria.

    Most people in the world have learnt from the disasters of Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. Even the American people are tiring of these costly and futile wars.

    We the people – endlessly faced with leaders who are war criminals, corrupt and without integrity, are really outnumbered by callous violence, greed, the arms industry and hegemony.

    We the people demand an immediate stop to aggression against Syria and renewed efforts to find a political solution to the crisis.

    For the BRussells Tribunal, the Executive Board, 28 August 2013.
