Ahead of the planned ‘Geneva II’ peace talks in Switzerland (due to take
place 22-24 January), Syria Peace & Justice will hold a peace vigil
to call for immediate humanitarian ceasefires to enable aid to reach
besieged communities in Syria, the immediate release of all political
prisoners and other arbitrarily detained persons, and an inclusive
Syrian-led peace process that includes strong representation from Syrian women,
Syrian civil society organisations and various moderate Syrian opposition groups.*
All peace-loving people who share the above aims are most welcome to join us.
A peace action may also be organised for Wednesday, 22 January 2013. Let us know if you want to be kept informed about that.
*The talks as currently proposed, whose agenda is being set by major
foreign powers like the US and Russia, are unsatisfactory. On the Syrian
side, only the government and a single opposition delegation – from the
Turkey-based Syrian National Coalition – have been invited. Not quite the
inclusive, Syrian-led peace process we are calling for!
In peace and solidarity,
