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.

To Stop War – The People Must Stop!
The Orange Revolution staged by the people of the Ukraine, followed the 2004 Presidential elections, for which, it was claimed showed massive corruption, fraud and voter intimidation.
This democratic revolution was highlighted by a series of acts of civil disobedience, mass sitins and general strikes, with thousands of supporters camping out along the central streets of Kiev.

“Lets UNITE now for future Peace.”
The people are saying;
“CUT THE WAR, NOT OUR BUDGETS!”
Listen to the people
Why it’s time for the troops to come home
We, the people, have nothing more to lose by taking a stand now for common humanity.
We need UK forces to withdrawn soon; we need to break the NATO coalition. If we don’t act now, this could result in an escalation of war into Iran.
So much bravery, loyalty, devotion; so many young lives already destroyed. Unmanned drone planes continue to bomb Pakistan daily, despite the fact that NO declaration of war has been made. This is not reported within mainstream media.
The war in Afghanistan is a mess. The insurgency grows, and why wouldn’t it: foreign troops have invaded and occupied their country! The people responsible for 9/11 are no longer there. So why are we?
Why are we offering up the lives of our sons and daughters every single day, for no reason anyone can define. The October 20th Governments budgets cuts are upon us. These are the severest spending cuts since the 1930s – all in order to fund an illegal war.
Prime Minister Cameron says our British troops will be in Afghanistan at least another five years at a cost of £5bn a year, while cutting child benefits to save £1bn a year and cutting housing benefit to
the poor to save £1.8bn a year.
Following the successful withdraw of our service personnel, we, as a country
must take responsibility for ongoing humanitarian aid and support to the people of

Peace Strike is committed to bring our service personnel back from Afghanistan alive, and to aid in the prevention of further conflicts within the middle east especially Iran.
In the early hours of this morning, Maria occupied the Churchill statue in Parliament Square. Surrounded by barbed wire as a symbol of the concentration camps in the Tamil area of Sri Lanka, she is highlighting the plight of hundreds of thousands of ordinary Tamil civilians who are being held in atrocious conditions in military camps.
The camps break many international conventions, and there are many reports of disappearances,rapes and torture. Also, medical personnel are denied access, and international NGOs and medical organisations cannot get into the area with any aid. The Sri Lankan Government has imposed draconian restrictions on journalism, so the only news and monitoring is at grassroots level.
The action at Parliament Square is a striking image, with Churchill surrounded by barbed wire and placards about the Tamil Plight.
