Stop The Genocide in Aleppo and all of Syria !


 Civilians in Aleppo  and across Syria are being intensively bombed right now !
-by bunker bombs, phosphorous bombs, napalm, thermobaric , cluster and chlorine containing barrel bombs by Russia and the Assad regime, targetting homes, schools, hospitals,  rescue teams, and underground shelters ! The regime and Russia have even bombed the city's water supply! 
Every day more hospitals are destroyed!

Aleppo is  under a starvation siege, like many other Syrian cities.
300,000 citizens of Aleppo could  starve to death within weeks !  
Innocent civilians -babies, women, men, and children, are completely trapped !
Despite these atrocious crimes against humanity,  Aleppo's people show tremendous solidarity and caring for each other, as they work to find  the wounded under the rubble, and rush them to 
underground clinics for treatment.

Hundreds of democratically run community councils have been formed across Syria. The councils take care of the people's needs,  and are completely free of the state.
They have produced a tremendous amount of art , literature,  music and electronic media documenting the revolution and counter revolution in Syria.
 Unite  Waitemata Community Branch stands in solidarity with these local community councils who set an inspiring example to the world!

calling for Dignity, Justice and Freedom 

The Assad regime and Russia have killed half a million Syrian people.
The regime regularly uses rape and torture as weapons. Most of the fighters killing Syrian civilians are not Syrians. They include soldiers from Afghanistan, Lebanon, Iran and Iraq.   All foreign troops Out!

The war started because people across Syria went onto the streets to demand democracy, and instead were shot, rounded up, tortured, raped and killed. 
So  eventually the people took up arms to defend themselves. The Assad regime has vowed to continue to obliterate the population until it accepts his rule.

Both the United States and Russia have re-defined the people's struggle for
democracy as a "war on terror" and are both responsible for killing civilians.
 The growth of Isis was encouraged by the Assad regime, so the regime would look like a lesser evil. However, despite the evils perpetrated by Isis, it  has killed a fraction of the number of people that the Assad regime  and Russia have.  The democratic opposition has been forced to fight on two fronts, against the attacks from the regime and from Isis.

We call on   all workers, beneficiaries, and lovers of peace and democracy everywhere  to stand in solidarity with the people of Aleppo!
