URGENT PICKET NO WESTERN INTERVENTION IN SYRIA THURSDAY 14 JUNE, 5.30PM - 7PM DOWNING STREET, LONDON .

Every day the calls for increased Western intervention in Syria are growing.

Yesterday former UK foreign secretary David Owen urged Turkey to threaten to lead a NATO intervention in to the country. Today William Hague said the question of military action in Syria remained open.

The media is fixated on the tragic events taking place, treating western intervention as the only possible way forward, while giving almost no coverage to the stream of deaths in Afghanistan including the NATO attack on an Afghan village last week which apparently killed 18 civilians. (SEE "How many civilians have been killed in 11 years of the 'war on terror'?": http://bit.ly/KsMxrA 

No consideration is given to the likely outcome of increased Western intervention – a massive increase in the casualty and the acceleration of a drift towards sectarian war which could engulf the whole region. (SEE "Why foreign intervention in Syria will only shed more blood and could set the region on fire": http://bit.ly/KwucOA )

The disastrous outcomes of the attacks on Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya are being conveniently forgotten in the push towards another attack. (SEE "How the US blocks peace plans to end the Syria carnage": http://bit.ly/JIGALe )

Officers of Stop the War coalition will be handing in a letter to Downing street on Thursday 14 June at 5.30pm warning against further intervention in Syria.
We are asking all our supporters who are able to attend to join the picket of Downing Street at the same time to oppose intervention.

URGENT PICKET NO WESTERN INTERVENTION IN SYRIA THURSDAY 14 JUNE, 5.30PM - 7PM DOWNING STREET, LONDON
