IAWM PROTEST AT DÁIL EIREANN RE SYRIA: STOP THE BOMBING - CEASEFIRE NOW!

IAWM PRESS RELEASE 18 OCTOBER 2016
IAWM PROTEST AT DÁIL EIREANN RE SYRIA – STOP THE BOMBING
WEDNESDAY 19 OCTOBER from 5.30PM.
• STOP THE BOMBING - CEASEFIRE NOW!
• HUMANITARIAN AID - NOT BOMBS
• ALL FOREIGN MILITARY OUT OF SYRIA
• LET THE REFUGEES IN
The IAWM will hold a rally this Wednesday at 5.30pm at Dáil Eireann in solidarity with the people of Syria, to call for the bombing to stop and for the Irish Government to end its silence on the issue. There will be Irish and Syrian speakers.
The IAWM condemns the continued bombardment of Aleppo, and other Syrian centres of resistance, by Russian and Syrian army forces.
We equally condemn the continued bombing, logistical support, arming of rebels, etc. by the US, Britain, France, Saudi Arabia, Turkey et al. The recent ceasefire was broken by the killing of over sixty Syrian soldiers by a US air strike, possibly with British involvement.
The Syrian people are being sacrificed by a struggle between world (Russia and the US mainly) and regional powers in a geopolitical sandwich in what looks like becoming an imperial carve up of their country fuelled by an obscene multi-national arms industry with its insatiable demands for increased profits.
The IAWM says: STOP THIS WAR NOW!
Stop the bombing of Aleppo. Agree an immediate and permanent ceasefire. Open the channels for humanitarian aid to assist the besieged, starving and dying people of Syria. Let those refugees who are fleeing this carnage come to the west for sanctuary if they wish to. Stop flooding the region with arms. All foreign militaries should announce their intentions to get out of Syria.

IAWM PROTEST AT DÁIL EIREANN THIS WEDNESDAY EVENING RE SYRIA – STOP THE BOMBING

IAWM BULLETIN 18 OCTOBER 2016

IAWM PROTEST AT DÁIL EIREANN RE SYRIA – STOP THE BOMBING

WEDNESDAY 19 OCTOBER from 5.30PM.

• STOP THE BOMBING - CEASEFIRE NOW!
• HUMANITARIAN AID - NOT BOMBS
• ALL FOREIGN MILITARY OUT OF SYRIA
• LET THE REFUGEES IN

The IAWM totally condemns the continued bombardment of Aleppo, and other Syrian centres of resistance, by Russian and Syrian army forces.

We equally condemn the continued bombing, logistical support, arming of rebels, etc. by the US, Britain, France, Saudi Arabia, Turkey et al. The recent ceasefire was broken by the killing of over sixty Syrian soldiers by a US air strike, possibly with British involvement.

The descent into a living hell for Syrians has been fueled by a number of factors including western governments’ insidious interference for their own imperial interests, the logistical support to rebel groups from the regional petro-Princedoms and Turkey, the rise of Da’esh (Isis), which is a direct result of the 2003 invasion and occupation of Iraq, and the violence of the Assad Government helped by Iran, Hizbollah and of course Russia in order to protect, like the US, its imperial interests.

The Syrian people are now being sacrificed by a struggle between world (Russia and the US mainly) and regional powers in a geopolitical sandwich in what looks like becoming an imperial carve up of their country fueled by an obscene multi-national arms industry with its insatiable demands for increased profits.

The IAWM says: STOP THIS WAR NOW!

Stop the bombing of Aleppo. Agree an immediate and permanent ceasefire. Open the channels for humanitarian aid to assist the besieged, starving, wounded and dying people of Syria. Let those refugees who are fleeing this carnage come to the west for sanctuary if they wish to. Stop flooding the region with arms. All foreign militaries should announce their intentions to get out of Syria.

The Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC) will hold a peaceful protest at the Dundalk FC vs Maccabi Tel Aviv match in Tallaght Stadium on Thursday 29th September. The protest starts at 7pm and will take place outside the stadium, with the aim of highlighting the BDS call for the expulsion of the Israeli FA from FIFA and UEFA due to Israel’s ongoing human rights abuses against the Palestinian people, including Palestinian sportspeople.

The protest will be an act of solidarity with the people of Palestine who have suffered so much injustice, and continue to suffer daily, at the hands of the Israel’s apartheid regime. Outside the stadium banners reading, ‘Love Football, Hate Apartheid’ and ‘Boycott Israeli Apartheid’ will be displayed peacefully alongside Palestinian flags.

CHILCOT REPORT AN INDICTMENT OF TONY BLAIR’S RUSH TO WAR IN IRAQ

IAWM BULLETIN 09 JULY 2016

1. IAWM PR ON CHILCOT REPORT

2. NO TO NATO PROTEST AT US EMBASSY THIS SATURDAY (LookLeft event)

3. DONATING TO THE IAWM

1. IAWM PR ON CHILCOT REPORT
• IAWM WELCOMES CHILCOT REPORT ON IRAQ WAR
• REPORT AN INDICTMENT OF TONY BLAIR’S RUSH TO WAR IN IRAQ
• SHOWS THAT BLAIR MISLED CABINET, PARLIAMENT AND THE BRITISH PEOPLE
• CHILCOT MUST LEAD TO JUSTICE FOR IRAQIS AND UK MILITARY FAMILIES

The IAWM welcomes the publication of the long awaited Chilcot Inquiry and the fact that it is a serious indictment of Tony Blair’s role in Britain’s involvement in the invasion and occupation of Iraq and the subsequent sectarian blood letting.

The report finds unequivocally among other issues that Tony Blair “deliberately exaggerated the threat posed by Sadaam Hussein”, that “there was no immInent threat from Saddam” and that “Britain’s intelligence agencies produced ‘flawed information’”. It also highlights that Blair “ignored warnings on what would happen in Iraq after invasion” and that it had “no post invasion strategy”.

Tony Blair and Foreign Minister Jack Straw consistently misled the British Parliament and distorted the work of the UN and weapons inspectors despite the very clear assurances from inspectors such as Mohammed El Baradei of the International Atomic Agency who said that there was “no evidence of prohibited weapons programmes” and of Hans Blix, the leader of the UN inspection team, who “found no evidence of plausible indication of the revival of a nuclear weapons programme in Iraq”.
