There's a line in the old labor song "Solidarity Forever" which says "We
can bring to birth a new world from the ashes of the old."
Well tonight I met three guys who are doing that LITERALLY.
Three representatives of Syria's grassroots, independent civil defense
force, the White Helmets, spoke in New York and described how Syrians'
sense of solidarity and community led them to create this organization of
heroes. And they talked of how their work was a threat to the regime and
all other undemocratic forces because it proved that the grassroots were
building every day an alternative, that Syrians could AND STILL ARE keeping
life going through their own  efforts.
Thanks so much to NAAP for organizing this incredible event.
