Solidarity with Aleppo! Hands off Syria!

Joint Statement, 4 October 2016.




In recent days, the people of Aleppo are once again suffering unspeakable horror. They are living under siege and are daily experiencing devastating bombardment by the air forces of Assad and Russia.


We stand with the people of Aleppo in their heroic efforts to defend the city against occupation by Assad’s army!


Furthermore, we reiterate our support for the Syrian people in their ongoing liberation struggle which will continue as long as the dictatorship of the Assad clan continues to exist!


We denounce the murderous war against the Syrian people by the Russian and the Iranian states.


Likewise we denounce the so-called “War on Terror” in Syria by the US as well as a number of European powers! In fact, the terrorist war is being waged by them, among others, against the Syrian people!


We also denounce the military intervention of the Turkish state in northern Syria being directed against both the Kurdish people and the Syrian people fighting against Assad’s dictatorship.


We warn that the Great Powers – with the help of regional powers – are preparing another Sykes-Picot Agreement (better called the Kerry-Lavrov Agreement). This conspiracy aims to divide Syria, liquidate the Revolution, and retain the Assadist state apparatus.


We say: “Great Powers – Hands off Syria!”


Finally we denounce Daesh (the so-called “Islamic State”) which is waging a reactionary war against the people of Syria.


We call for a militant international campaign in solidarity with the heroic Syrian people defending Aleppo against the terrorist Assad regime. Such a campaign should be directed simultaneously against intervention by the Great Powers in Syria.


* Solidarity with Aleppo!


* Down with Assad!


* Great Powers: Hands off Syria!


* For the arming of the Syrian people to defend themselves against Assad and imperialist aggression!
