February 22, 2018. Solidarity action for Eastern Ghouta
Join us Thursday evening from 6-8 PM in a silent protest in Piccadilly Circus against the absolute silence of the international community over the massacre of civilians in Eastern Ghouta. The Assad regime and his allies are exterminating the citizens of Eastern Ghouta, who are only 4 miles from Assad's presidential palace.
The citizens of Ghouta have been under siege for more than 4 years now, with very limited humanitarian food and medicine deliveries allowed access by the regime.
Not only have they been suffering from a lack of medical supplies and malnutrition, but they are being actively bombed from the sky by Assad's and Russia's air forces. They have also been repeatedly gassed by the regime with chlorine and sarin bombs, against international prohibitions on the use of chemical weapons.
Four hospitals were destroyed by airstrikes yesterday, including a maternity hospital. In the past week, more than 100 people have been killed and hundreds more injured every day. It is difficult for emergency services to help the people of Ghouta because roads are being bombed by the airstrikes. As if the number of civilians killed or injured by the bombings wasn't bad enough, yesterday, Ghouta's food storage facilities were destroyed, worsening the effects of the siege.
The regime's siege, bombing and gassing of civilians in Eastern Ghouta are crimes against humanity, yet the world is watching in silence. How many UN resolutions does Assad need to break before being held to account? How many more war crimes will we witness while the world watches in silence? How many more parents in Eastern Ghouta will watch helplessly while their children are being slaughtered in front of their eyes? When will ENOUGH BE ENOUGH???
