For Immediate Release
Event: Demonstration Against U.S.-NATO War Threats on Syria, Today, June 27
Location: McNamara Federal Bldg., Michigan at Cass, 4:30-5:30pm
Sponsor: Michigan Emergency Committee Against War & Injustice (MECAWI)
U.S.-NATO No War on Syria!: Stop Attacks on Iran!; Stop Drone Attacks!; Money for Jobs & Education--Not War!
The United States, through the Pentagon and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), along with its NATO allies and reactionary regimes in the Middle East, are waging war on the Syrian people. The New York Times (6-21-12) admits that the CIA is arming the Syrian "rebels" at the Turkish border. Therefore it was not shocking that Syria shot down a U.S.-F4 fighter jet just a few days ago.
The goal in Syria is like Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, regime change. The White House and Pentagon care nothing about the people of Syria, nothing about "democracy." They only want to make Syria a satellite of imperialism and to re-enslave the people of Syria.
The murderous assault on Libya last year showed that the only one who benefits from these imperialist regime changes are the big oil companies, the banks and Zionist Israel. The threats and attacks on Iran are also for the benefit of U.S. Imperialism. The progressive movement in the United States must stand up and say NO to U.S.-War Against Syria. We need jobs, education and health care--not war.
