This Saturday, March 11, the Park Street vigil on the Boston Common, from 1pm to 2pm, will be a speak-out to stop the wars on Syria & Yemen. This is in response to the Hands Off Syria Coalition’s call for international days of action against war and Islamophobia during the week of March 11-19. See https://handsoffsyriacoalition.net/

The Pentagon is considering sending more U.S. ground forces to Syria. To justify this military escalation, the demonization of the Syrian Government has been intensified though a new wave of misleading propaganda. The most recent salvo is a sensational yet unfounded report from Amnesty International, which has been broadcast by media outlets around the world.

In Yemen, the US has long been supporting the Saudi war, which is not only a war against the Houthi movement, but an atrocious war of hunger and mayhem against the population and economy of Yemen.

All of this aggression must end. Join the Committee for Peace and Human Rights to raise our voices against this violence.
