9 Million Displaced Syrian’s Must Not Be Forgotten.

No need to bring tent as already organized.

Bring good energy, banners, placards, tea,coffee. Check weather forcast for brolly alert!

The U.N. estimates that over 6.5 million people are internally displaced — an increase of more than two million in just six months.

2.5 million have fled to surrounding countries, Lebanon, Turkey, Jordon, Iraq, and Egypt. This has caused great pressure on the host countries who are in turn suffering from their own internal turmoil.

The lack of clean water and sanitation in crowded, makeshift settlements is an urgent concern. Diseases like cholera and polio can easily spread — even more life-threatening without enough medical services. In some areas with the largest refugee populations, water shortages have reached emergency levels; the supply is as low as 30 liters per person per day.

Arms companies supply weapons to kill predominantly civilians, in other countries and make an obscene amount of money.

The money for the weapons is unwittingly supplied by the taxpayer.

Aid is then sent to these destroyed countries to ‘help the victims’ This is the taxpayers money.

Charities are then set up to help in the short fall of funds, again this is the taxpayer.

The ordinary person in the street unwittingly foots the bill to make people they don’t know and will probably never meet, suffer and be killed, while making someone they don’t know and will probably never meet, VERY RICH.

The time has come to peacefully decline.

“I hope that those that have the most important responsibility in world affairs will be able to understand that forgetting Syria will be a total disaster,” the UN’s Guterres says.

Four- week US Emergency ‘Peace Picket’ Ends Today.

 

Peace Strike outside US Embassy London

Four-week US Embassy ‘Peace Picket’ ends today

(Sat 28 September) – Peace Strike will today dismantle its emergency 24hr ongoing ‘Peace Picket’ for Syria, outside the US Embassy in London.

Following the passing of a resolution last night by the United Nations Security Council, the immediate threat of Western military strikes on Syria appears to have passed. We shall nevertheless remain vigilant and be following events closely, responding with further action as required.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/10341167/UN-Security-Council-adopts-Syria-resolution.html

 

We recognize the plight of the Syrian people and the devastating consequences that the civil war has had on the Syrian people as a whole. As a direct result, 2 million refugees have fled into neighboring countries and that in turn has increased regional tension as countries try to accommodate them. There are also 4 million internally displaced people within the Syria.

What they desperately need now – foremost – is medical aid, supplies and equipment. The world’s military might is stationed in and around the Gulf and has the skill and ability to take a lead by helping the 500,000 seriously wounded people in Syria and take emergency action NOW.

It has to be the Syrian people themselves who initiate dialogue and negotiation towards peace within their country, together with the full cooperation and help from the wider international community. We support all initiatives that promote a peaceful solution for all concerned.

Peace Strike would like to take this opportunity to thank all who have supported our ‘peace picket’ in various ways, with special thanks to those who have helped maintain our physical, round-the-clock presence outside the embassy for nearly a month.

Watch this space for news of future actions!

EMERGENCY PEACE ACTION FOR SYRIA

24 Hour 0n-going Peace Strike ‘Peace Picket’

#peacestrike

Outside the US Embassy, Grosvenor Square W1A 2LQ

Starting 7pm Monday 3rd August 2013

A 24hr on-going Peace-picket will be established outside the US Embassy in solidarity with the innocent civilians of Syria. Even though the UK government voted 285-272 against military action against Syria, this was by 13 votes – a small margin that could easily change – determined by fast moving circumstances. It does not mean that if US decide to attack Syria that the UK will not be drawn in at a later date. We must not assume that this matter has gone away. If the US attack Syria, it could escalate neighbouring countries, including Israel and allies of Iran. This would be a ‘Game Changer’ and would force UK to back USA and Israel.

France has now joined the US in support of air strikes. France sold £800,000 worth of arms to the Assad regime.

Our role as a peace movement must be to support the people of Syria. To date no evidence has been presented as to who deployed the chemical weapons in Syria. There is danger in overloaded conflicting misinformation. It will take two weeks for the UN inspectors to give any conclusive evidence. These people are the experts and any other sources cannot be relied on. Either way, no matter what is announced, we firmly oppose ANY military strike or intervention which will only kill and maim unlimited thousands of people, families and children.

Obama has again announced that he supports military air strikes of ‘limited duration and scope’ against Syria. The day after the UK vote, Friday 30th August, the US Secretary of State, John Kerry made a powerful classic propaganda speech full of moving but non-factual statements. Many commented that they were moved by his speech. Power and spin can be very potent.

President Obama has announced that he will present the case to Congress for a vote on September 9th. Public opinion is not in favour of air strikes – expect more strong rhetoric to now to manipulate opinion.

At anytime things could escalate. We must be alert not to be caught off guard.

The only realistic way forward is to hold peace talks, negotiate, and uphold international law.

Emergency Peace Action for Syria

The aim of this action is to promote a ‘peace strike picket’ to highlight the power that each individual has in their own right. We are ‘On strike for peace’. We will call an international strike should US start military strikes against Syria.

Anyone who does any activity “within the system” is actually supporting it. Therefore to start with, we need 3 days of:

NO SHOPPING! – BUY NOTHING!

NO LABOUR !Only emergency workers and essential workers carry on, the rest of us shut down.

NO SCHOOL, COLLEGE, UNIVERSITY, NURSERYTo prevent death and injury to others, it is more important to register your concerns, rather than worry about a few days off.

NO TRANSPORT! - Buses, underground, trains, planes.

NO TV! –– They sensationalise war.

YOU DO NOT NEED A UNION – OR EVEN TO BE A WORKER – TO CALL A

‘STRIKE FOR PEACE’ – THE PEOPLE CALL IT THEMSELVES!

Includes: students, pensioners, homeworkers, anyone and everyone on benefit and disability allowance.

*Strike does not include emergency and essential workers whose work and travel we support. Police, Fire Service, Nurses, Doctors, Ambulance, Carers and Emergency Utility Workers.

The strike involves discipline and motivation, based on a ‘duty of care’ for humanity. Listen to your conscience and do not be afraid to do what is right. Compassion is vital for humanity. Without compassion we are mere empty vessels.

We acknowledge that a mass strike could cause hardship. This would be minimal to us compared with “surgical Strikes” to civilians in Syria. This will be limited by mutual co-operation within our communities. It’s up to us to create our own opportunity to have a voice against war that will be heard, and will have real effect. If we don’t act now we could face a future of endless war….

Be kind to one another and we will endure.

Code of conduct

All Peace Strike Pickets are operated with a strike policy of no alcohol, drugs, verbal abuse or any anti-social behaviour.

To promote peace we need to be peaceful in our manner.

We are representing the Syrian people in there time of need.

Latest:

1st Sept, Arab League calling for action against Syria from international community.

2nd Sept Boris Johnson, Mayor of London calling for 2nd vote in Parliament.

SYRIA / IRAN: CROSSING THE RED LINE

CROSSING THE RED LINE

The RED LINE for the peace movement is if NATO forces officially arm the Syrian rebels for full scale regime change.

No UNITED NATIONS RESOLUTION can  legally allow any member state to engage in the use of force against any sovereign nation. 

 

The territory of a State shall not be the object of military occupation resulting from the use of force in contravention of the provisions of the Charter. The territory of a State shall not be the object of acquisition by another State resulting from the threat or use of force. No territorial acquisition resulting from the threat or use of force shall be recognized as legal. Nothing in the foregoing shall be construed as affecting:

The UN declaration on Principles of International law (UNGAR 2625)

If they cross the RED LINE we need to start peaceful civil disobedience, non-violent direct action and peaceful withdrawal of non essential work.

Only by going “ON STRIKE FOR PEACE” can we stop a war with Iran. We need to have a plan that will be powerful and effective.

The truth has been exposed by Wikileaks, Julian Assange, Bradley Manning, Edward Snowden and many more. We no longer need to prove the case concerning illegal war and occupation, illegal rendition and torture.
We have all been vindicated by the sacrifice of the few to bring us the proof that waging wars of aggression are illegal, immoral and MUST STOP!

Individually we are powerful, collectively we are all powerful.
 

SYRIA / IRAN – PEACE MOVEMENT MUST DRAW IT’S OWN RED LINE!

No 10 Downing Street

 

 

UNITED WE STAND! “HANDS OFF SYRIA / IRAN”

 

UK citizens must stand united if we are to be effective as a peace movement.
We must not be divided by hate propaganda which is overwhelming the media at this precise moment .
Once divided we are more easily controlled. Fear is the key to controlling the masses as we become increasingly afraid of each other.
If we allow this to happen we will loose the peace movement in a giant tsunami
of hysterical racist bombardment.

This is not by accident but rather, by design.

We need to stand strong and resolute now more than ever. We must be prepare to
face the challenge of more war on the horizon, and this time we must stop it before it’s too late..

United we stand.

Take courage to stand together against what we know is wrong.
Peace has a future for us all, not war.

Be prepared, at some point to go- “On Strike for Peace”

NO TO MILITARY INVASION IN SYRIA!

 

Intervention in Syria will pave the way to war with Iran.

Remember the west does NOT do liberation!

We sell or supply arms for profit or strategic gain. Either side in the conflict is the same in as they are both responsible for atrocities. It’s called war. Arming either side will lead to the same objective, the total destruction of Syria. Civilians, families, children and the vulnerable are the helpless victims.

The west needs to make it possible for peace talks instead of adding to the huge humanitarian catastrophe, which then forces action that is not in the people’s interest.

Downing Street Demo / Petition – Welfare not Warfare!

WELFARE NOT WARFARE

WHAT THE “PLEBS” GOING ON?

UK meltdown underway right NOW!

Public assets are being sold off against public interest. New legislation  opens way for privatization of our National Health Service. The NHS, is due to celebrate its 65 year anniversary this year. In post war Britain they managed ,with great determination, to bring into existence the world renown National Health Service. This was made possible because the political will was there to support the notion of a health service for all. Our health service was respected throughout the world. Today, we are a country at war in present time and we now find ourselves in the position of our own government making it possible to sell- off our national treasure.

THE NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE SHOULD NOT BE SOLD OFF, IT BELONGS TO THE PEOPLE!

Billions of pounds has been spent in recent years refurbishing hospitals, making them a viable proposition for privatization.

Mismanagement has left the NHS vulnerable and much criticized. Lack of beds and poor clinical care opens the door to the alternative of an attractive ‘take over’ by companies that have money to inject into the failing service. However, what we must remember is that private companies will wish to make profits…BIG PROFITS!

WAR IN AFGHANISTAN IS COSTING 12 MILLION A DAY!

We can save our health service if we end the war now and bring the troops home. Medical personnel could be deployed in our hospitals for a given period of time, just like the help they gave us during the Olympics. This is do-able and make sense. Saving life is far better than being involved in endless futile conflict.

Austerity cuts are destroying our country! Bring the troops home NOW!

STOP THE CUTS!
WELFARE NOT WARFARE!

Put the picture together. They are running down our services to make way for privatization.

All the people’s hard earned assets are being sold off under the guise of having to make cuts as there is no money available. However, there are companies circling over head, such as Virgin Care, waiting to step in and invest in order to make huge profits. The same applies to the Police Service, Fire Service Schools etc…….
