Rage against genocide in Aleppo
The Syrian Revolution that began with non-violent Arab Spring demonstrations for freedom in 2011 has survived five years of Bashar al-Assad’s counter-revolutionary atrocities that have killed half a million men, women and children and forced Syrians by the millions into exile. Now Assad and Russia’s Vladimir Putin have twisted a phony ceasefire into escalated aerial bombing in a murderous effort to bury the still beating heart of the Syrian Revolution in Aleppo. In the process they are obliterating Syria’s future—its children—under rubble.
The Day of Rage for Aleppo on October 1 is an attempt to break through five years of global indifference, or even hostility, to the historic struggles for a free Syria and for basic survival. After protests in solidarity with Free Syria on Saturday, join us on Tuesday for a discussion of the current perilous plight of the Syrian people and of the revolutionary legacy Syrians have carved out for the world at such cost to themselves during the five years of confronting Assad and his allies.
