Rally at Albertplatz 6pm
Statement by Internationalist Center about the hunger strike going on:
Today, people in different cities are taking the streets in order to show solidarity with the people affected by the war in Syria and in remembrance of the thousands of dead people in Aleppo. The alliance “Actions4Syria” is calling for actions via Facebook.
Some young people from Syria support the hunger strike of a young Syrian woman. They are protesting against the bombing of Aleppo and demand the immediate stop of combat operations. They want to call attention to the bombings and the war going on since 2011. Their protest is not only against the „bloodshed in Syria, the bombings of civilians and silent global publicity“. Furthermore the restrictive regulations for the reunification of families and the excruciating EU-Turkey-Deal should be mentioned.
Since five years different parties are rageing through Syria in order to enforce their interests. Russia, the Syrian dictator Assad, Daesh, the USA, Erdogan, Iran, the Hezbollah and a multitude of warlords. More than 470.000 people had been killed since the beginning of the war. At the same time we want to stress out the point the approach of the Assad regime which bombs out Syrian cities despite the world witnesses this actions. Meanwhile Russia is using the war as a laboratory to try out outlawed actions against civilians. Already a survey from the past year of Syrian refugees about their reasons to flee showed that 70% hold the course of action of the Gouverment by Bashar al-Assad responsible for their flight.
