Join the No War With Syria Rally this Saturday

August 29, 2013

1185949_583181441743829_2053719350_nIt is happening again. President Bush Obama is moving forward with plans to attack Syria. This despite the fact most Americans do not want to intervene in Syria. According to a recent Reuters poll: “About 60 percent of Americans surveyed said the United States should not intervene in Syria’s civil war, while just 9 percent thought President Barack Obama should act.” It is hard to see any support for the President there.

Even with chemical weapons involved there isn’t that much more support for war.

The Reuters/Ipsos poll, taken August 19-23, found that 25 percent of Americans would support U.S. intervention if Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces used chemicals to attack civilians, while 46 percent would oppose it. That represented a decline in backing for U.S. action since August 13, when Reuters/Ipsos tracking polls found that 30.2 percent of Americans supported intervention in Syria if chemicals had been used, while 41.6 percent did not.

So even with chemical weapons being used the American public overwhelmingly rejects the call to war.

In response to this imminent war there is an international effort to have No War With Syria rallies in cities around the world. Here is the Facebook page for the cause. The Global No War With Syria Rallies movement is being spearheaded by the Anti-War Taskforce group.

It is worth noting the anti-war movement is NOT condoning anything done by any group in Syria. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had done many things that make him a criminal and tyrant. However punishing the civilian population of Syria is not the answer. It is time for the US to realize we are NOT the world police. We as a nation cannot use our military to force changes in other countries. Three are other paths that can be taken. It is time to let President Obama know the American people do not stand with him.

Here are the instructions to find a rally in a city near you:

Go to the FB search bar and search for ‘No War With Syria Rally (your city)’ example: No War With Syria Rally San Diego

Join the event, invite ALL of your friends to join it as well, then get involved with the locals that are already in the event page to help them any way you can.

*If there is no event page made for your location yet, please make one.
Here’s how:

-Simply click on your event tab from your FB homepage

-Click create an event

-Name the event ‘No War With Syria Rally (your city)’ example: No War With Syria Rally San Diego

-make sure you set the privacy to public so other people can find it when they search for it

-Pick a central and relevant location and start time for your area(please make it on Saturday August 31st)

In South Dakota there is an event setup for Sioux Falls. Currently the event is scheduled to be in front of City Hall at Noon on Saturday. However I would check the event on Saturday to make sure the time/location haven’t changed. Also make sure to click “going” to the event if you plan to attend. People that are ‘on the fence’ about attending rallies gain more confidence and will actually show up if they feel a large group will be there.
