P.S. While many of us are actively organizing in defense of Syrian refugees
- both by organizing for their right to find refuge in a supportive
environment, and by organizing against the multi-imperialist wars which
drove them away - the SSM is SUPPORTING their murder, directly by
supporting Russian et al. aggression and, even more insidiously, indirectly
by claiming they're returning home already thanks to Russia and that
therefore our efforts on their behalf are unnecessary:


P.P.S.: The SSM (US, not to be confused with the heroic SSM-UK) organized
this statement of support for Assad; guess which of our favorite Stalinist
misleaders signed it? :
