** 9 Million Displaced Syrians Must Not Be Forgotten **

Show solidarity with the Syrian people and support the pop-up ‘Syrian Refugee Camp’

Parliament Square, Westminster, London SW1A OAA

Wednesday 11th June 2014

10am to 6pm

No need to bring tents as already organized.

Bring good energy, banners, placards, tea, and coffee.
Check weather forecast for brolly alert!

The U.N. estimates that over 6.5 million people are internally displaced — an increase of more than two million in just six months.

Over 2.7 million have fled Syria to escape the violence, mostly to surrounding countries: Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan, Iraq, and Egypt. This has caused great pressure on the host countries, who are in turn suffering from their own internal turmoil.

The lack of clean water and sanitation in crowded, makeshift settlements is an urgent concern. Diseases like cholera and polio can easily spread — even more life-threatening without enough medical services. In some areas with the largest refugee populations, water shortages have reached emergency levels; the supply is as low as 30 litres per person per day.

Arms companies supply weapons to kill predominantly civilians, in other countries and make an obscene amount of money.

The money for the weapons is unwittingly supplied by the taxpayer.

Aid is then sent to these destroyed countries to ‘help the victims’ This is the taxpayer’s money.

Charities are then set up to help in the short fall of funds, again this is the taxpayer.

The ordinary person in the street unwittingly foots the bill to make people they don’t know and will probably never meet, suffer and be killed, while making someone they don’t know and will probably never meet, VERY RICH.

“I hope that those that have the most important responsibility in world affairs will be able to understand that forgetting Syria will be a total disaster,” says António Guterres, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.

The time has come to peacefully decline.
