And if you didn’t hear us, we’ll shout a little louder!

 

G on Kerry

NO WAR ON SYRIA!

The People have spoken. They don’t want military intervention in Syria. The Mass Pirates made their voices heard along side other activists in the streets of Boston last Saturday. We even marched to John Kerry’s HOUSE. But powerful, monied interests have out leaders’ ears, and those interests are salivating for war. Money talks. We need to talk louder. Persistently. Until they hear US.

From MPP “Master Gunner” Garret Kirkland:

President Obama has put military options before Congress, regarding how/when/where to strike Syria. The Senate is drafting approval for “limited” attacks in Syria, constrained to a 60 day deadline. No ground troops.

60 days of bombing? 1 single bomb?: Totally unacceptable. NO WAR WITH SYRIA! No bombs! Cease intervening!

How many Syrians must die in order to punish the regime for crimes that Washington DC hasn’t proven it committed against the Syrian people? Why do we have no support from our staunchest NATO allies in Berlin and London? Why is Washington marching firmly forward to War in spite of broad resistance?

Can the People stop Congress before we inflict the suffering of Iraq and Libya upon Syria? It is entirely up to you, the People to turn out and make a statement that cannot be ignored.

On Saturday, Sept 7, nation- and world-wide, a second week of demonstrations against War w/ Syria will be commencing in your local cities and towns, and will culminate in a national march on DC, Monday, Sept 9.

Boston, MA. Boston Common, MBTA “Park St” Schedule of event:

10AM: Pre-event sign making, outreach, sign waving.
1PM: Rally and speakers.
2PM: March from Boston Common to Faneiul Hall
