About 50 US cruise missiles were launched on military installations of the Syrian regime of al-Assad by order of Donald Trump. They argue that it was in retaliation for the chemical attack perpetrated by Bashar al-Assad days before.
We repudiate both the Yankee bombing and the criminal action of the al-Assad dictatorship supported by Putin’s Russian aviation. Our socialist current, the IWU-FI, has for years repudiated the dictatorship of al-Assad and his genocidal actions and in particular, we repudiate the chemical gas bombardment that on Tuesday killed the lives of 72 people and left dozens injured in the town of Jan Seijun, in the north-western province of Idlib.
Likewise, now we repudiate the bombing ordered by Trump. We do not recognise any right of imperialism to pretend to do “justice”. Yankee imperialism is the greatest assassin in history with its invasions and aggressions in the world.
We call on the peoples of the world and the political, trade union, student and left-wing organisations to express their repudiation of both the imperialist bombing and the al-Assadâ€“Putin regime and to show solidarity with the Syrian rebel people.
Stop the bombing in Syria. No to US missiles and Trump. Out all foreign military interventions. Down with the dictatorship of Bashar al-Assad. No to ISIS. Support for the resistance of the Syrian people. For the rupture of relations of the governments with the dictatorship of al-Assad.
