  1. This all looks very commendable and extremely well-organized. May I suggest an addition to the text or banners – “Assad forces’ sieges of towns and cities must end – people are dying of starvation and disease!”
    Good luck, hope the weather is fine. Wish I could be with you!

  2. Thank you for your positive comment and good wishes, Therese.

    As far as the text of our flyer is concerned, I think your point is already covered by demands 1 and 2:

    “An immediate ceasefire, especially in besieged areas with urgent humanitarian needs”

    “All Syrian and foreign parties to address the desperate humanitarian situation and end all human rights abuses without further violence”

    Best wishes,
    Dan

  3. Thank God the Syrian people and their army are winning this war and driving back these foreign fanatics who are invading their beloved homeland. Syria is winning and most Syrians are backing their president. Let us not fudge the issue. Syria is being attacked by proxy forces of Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and NATO undercover troops. The people are suffering but they are so proud of their young men who are winning and beating back these jihadist savages.

    • Hi Des,

      We (Syria Peace and Justice) want to see peace in Syria and an end to the involvement of foreign troops and fighters, many of whom appear to have an agenda of their own that seemingly has little to do with the welfare of the Syrian people. We think there should be an end to all foreign military interference in Syria. The atrocities have to stop on all sides. We are particularly concerned about the plight of unarmed civilians – especially the children – caught in the middle of the violence, and the survivors and those lucky enough to escape are deeply traumatised. The international community must do more to bring an end to the violence and suffering, but we are opposed to foreign military intervention and believe that further militarisation of the conflict / revolution will only lead to greater suffering on all sides. Peace and justice for the people of Syria, peace for the world.

      In peace,
      Dan

      • Agree 100% with your comments above Dan. Des is swallowing the regime propaganda hook, line and sinker. Assad imported the terrorist Hezbollah forces in to Syria to re-take Qusayr because his army could not do it alone. Des conveniently omits this when he refers to “jihadist savages.” Hezbollah has been condemned world-wide as a terorist organization, but I guess if they are Assad’s terrorists that is fine with Des.
