WHEN..... WEDNESDAY 28 SEPTEMBER 2016...FROM 12 NOON TO 2PM
All Australian peace activists are disgusted by the Russian-backed
bombing of Aleppo night after night on their evening news over the last
week. We cannot stand by any longer.
An emergency picket of the Russian Consulate to protest this inhumanity
has been called for lunch time tomorrow (12 noon to 2pm) in
Sydney. David Shoebridge NSW Upper House MLC for The Greens Party has
agreed to speak at 12 Noon.
Organiser Mr Jefferson Lee from the Sydney Anti-Conscription Centenary
Campaign for Peace said "While the Russian and the Syrian regime are
not the only guilty party in the Syrian conflict they should be
reminded that international war crimes are being committed in the
current bombing of Aleppo!"
Mr Lee reminded the media that Australia and its American ally are not
blameless either. Protests by the Independent and Peaceful Australia
Network (IPAN) this week-end at the US-controlled Pine Gap war base
will remind Australians of our responsibilities in the struggle for
A spokeswoman for the Medical Association for the Prevention of War
(MAPW) Dr Anne Noonan also deplored the air war over Syria. She said
"The bombing of hospitals, medical supplies and health personnel, local
and international, only heighten the plight of civilians who medical
staff and volunteers are intending to save from war wounds."
The Sydney office of Doctors Without Borders are expecting a major
statement on the humanitarian crisis from their international
conference meeting in Dubai this week.
Mr Lee urged all Australians to step up the pressure on all
governments and the United Nations for a negotiated settlement of the
Syrian crisis. We cannot just use the "War on Terror" as an excuse to
allow thousands more innocent civilians to perish.
