Please support Medics, Paramedics, Allied Health Workers and Rescue Workers as they call on Minister Charlie Flanagan to stop Russia targetting rescue and medical facilities in Syria

Online Petition – Please sign here

Dear Minister Flanagan,

We are requesting that you represent us expeditiously at the United Nations, to demand an immediate cessation to the bombing of hospitals in Idlib, and other opposition-controlled areas in Syria.

We represent doctors, nurses, paramedics, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, dieticians, scientists and all those sickened by the annihilation of hospitals, staff and patients by Assad and Russian forces.

In recent weeks 15 hospitals were destroyed :

 ·       April 2- Maarat Nouman Hospital-Idlib

·        April 4 and 16- Mercy Hospital Khan Sheikhoun-Idlib

·        April 7 and 8 -Heish Clinic-Idlib

·        April 17- Ikhlas Hospital Shnan-Idlib

·        April 17- Erbin Hospital Eastern Ghouta

·        April 22 -Central Hospital Abdin- Idlib

·        April 25- Kafr Takharim Hospital- Idlib

·        April 26- Naseeb Hospital -Daraa

·        April 26- Al Latamneh Hospital- Hama

·        April 27- University Hospital East Deir-Idlib

·        April 27- SAMS Ambulance and Evacuation Medical Point Maar Zeta- Idlib

·        April 27- Shamuna Ambulance and Evacuation System Maar Zeta-Idlib

·        April 28- Women’s Hospital Kafr Takhareem-Northern Idlib

·        April 29- Al Nuaymeh Hospital-Daraa

·        April 28, 29 Kafr Zeta  Surgical and Maternity Hospital – Hama Suburbs

These actions are evil war-crimes and they must stop. It is unacceptable to watch this slaughter of Syrians in real time and the Geneva convention has been openly defied.

 Dear Minister Flanagan as our representative, we ask that our solidarity with the  Syrian people be voiced as a matter of the greatest urgency. 

 

March on Russian Embassy – Russian Complicity in Syrian War Crimes. April 7th 6pm Christ Church Rathgar

Idlib city and province in north-west Syria have been almost wholly under the control of rebel groups, now including al-Nusra, for almost the entire duration of the war in Syria. While the regime and its allies have been pursuing a campaign of surrender-or-starve sieges in other parts of Syria, the inevitable regime-enforced “Reconciliation” deals entail displacing the recalcitrant families from their homes and sending them to Idlib. As Assad – with Russian and Iranian support – has been gaining the upper hand in Syria, this pattern has been repeated time and time again – most famously in Aleppo in December 2016.

Now, in the region of Ma’arrat al-Numan in southern Idlib, the Russian and Syrian airforces have teamed up to deliver ever more cruel and heinous ways of attacking their enemies: The aerial bombardment and destruction of hospital facilities by Putin followed a day later with gas attacks by Assad. In Monday’s gas attack at least 58 people including children were killed. They died fainting, vomiting, foaming at the mouth and choking. There were no proper medical facilities available to treat them.

Once more, the powers that be in the international community are proving unwilling to stop these atrocities. Emboldened by Western indifference and now even the tacit support of the Trump administration, the vile Assad regime will try to press on with this brutal strategy and the atrocities will intensify until all opposition has been annihilated.

The beleaguered people of Syria desperately need to know that their plight is not being ignored. As the last hope that these people have, we have to make our opposition clear and deliver a strong message to Putin that we will not stand idly by and let this slaughter continue.

Please join us in a demonstration which will start in Rathgar Village and will proceed by foot to the Russian Embassy on Orwell Road. We will meet on Friday 7th April at 6pm at the car park to the side of the large Presbyterian Church (Christ Church) and walk to the Russian Embassy to bring our outrage to their door.

Demonstration of Solidarity with the Syrian Civil Opposition

 ISSM Solidarity with Syria 21 Jan'17 A4 poster v12
Saturday 21st January 2pm Top of Grafton Street (Stephen’s Green end)
The people of Syria rose in 2011 demanding justice and were met with annihilation instead.
In spite of horrific repression, the rise of extremist factions and the interference of numerous external international forces, the local pro democratic revolt in Syria has continued. It has been the focus of Assad’s savage repression, and although it is faltering after over five years of relentless attack by Assad and his allies Russia, Iran Hezbollah and others, it continues. There are areas of Syria which have experienced democracy and the development of free democratic institutions – including local councils, free press and radio, women’s groups – for the past five years. Now squeezed between the genocide and ethnic cleansing of Assad and the extremist ISIS and Al Qaeda affiliated groups, the civil opposition needs our outspoken support. They are the hope of Syria for the future.
In truth there has been no ceasefire, the slaughter, the barrel bombing, the starvation – the massacre – continues. Those who were forced to leave Aleppo are being bombed again. Children are still ‘being pulled from the clay’ of Syria as a result of Assad’s barrel bombs. Wadi Barada, Douma, Idlib, Ma’arat Al Nouman and many other ares are being shelled, bombed and besieged, deprived of food, medicines and fuel.
Join us and show solidarity with the people of Syria who want freedom with justice, but who are being subjected to bombing, starvation, imprisonment, torture and ethnic cleansing instead.

Dear Supporter,

in light of the absolutely catastrophic situation in
Aleppo, we are asking you to please join us for a protest demonstration at
the Russian Embassy on Orwell Road in Dublin tomorrow, Wednesday 14th
December at 5pm.

In the meantime, please see and support the request via
the Syrian Campaign from Syria Civil Defence (The
White Helmets), Kesh Malek,
Independent Doctors Association, and Syrian American Medical Society below.

Please also forward this request on to anyone who you
think may be interested.

Thank you.

URGENT: Hundreds of our humanitarian friends and colleagues
are facing summary execution, disappearance, and torture right at this moment
in besieged Aleppo and we need to take urgent action to secure safe passage
for them and the remaining 100,000 civilians.

This is the call that teachers, medical workers, and the White
Helmets put out yesterday to the international community to implement the UN’s evacuation plan. We have almost no time so
please act immediately and call the Department of Foreign
Affairs and the Russian Embassy in Dublin (numbers below) to
demand safe evacuation for people trapped in besieged Aleppo.

Please email us back and let us know what they say. Thank you.

The bombs are falling as we write this. For years our
humanitarian volunteers have worked to save the lives of our people in Aleppo:
operating in underground hospitals, rescuing entire families buried under
the rubble and risking our lives to document what the daily war crimes
committed by Assad regime and its ally Russia. We can do no more. 

Now we are with 100,000 civilians trapped in an area of five
square kilometres with non-stop bombs, shells and
advancements on the ground. In one building more than 500 people are
sheltering. People have been underground for days.

We are calling on the international community to provide a safe passage out
of Aleppo for the remaining 100,000 people. We know that the UN has a plan
to get us out across the four kilometres of
Western Aleppo to safety: with a few dozen buses and lorries we could all
be evacuated in twenty four hours. However, we need the international
community to guarantee the safety of their workers and our own.

CALL THE DEPARTMENT OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS AND THE RUSSIAN
EMBASSY RIGHT NOW TO DEMAND SAFE PASSAGE.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs: + 353 (0) 1 408 2000 and Russian Embassy: +353 (0) 1
492 2048

If we stay we fear for our lives. The women may be taken to
camps, the men disappeared and anyone who is known to have supported
civilians will face detention or execution. We’ve watched thousands of our boys and mens be detained. Countless White Helmets, doctors,
nurses and humanitarians have been targeted and killed in the regime’s cruel assault on Aleppo. The regime has been
trying to kill us for five years. Please don’t give them this chance.

We can not believe that the world’s most powerful countries cannot get 100,000
souls four kilometers to safety.

CALL THE DEPARTMENT OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS AND THE RUSSIAN
EMBASSY RIGHT NOW TO DEMAND SAFE PASSAGE.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs: + 353 (0) 1 408 2000 and Russian Embassy: +353 (0) 1

Signed,

Douma 4 Vigil, Amnesty Candle at Busáras, Dublin, December 9th, 6pm

Details here: douma4-a5-flyer-hr
Please stand with us at a vigil in memory of the Douma 4 – Extraordinary people and victims of the conflict in Syria. This, our 3rd Dublin vigil for these heroic people will be held at 6pm on Friday December 9th at the Amnesty Candle Monument beside Busáras in Dublin.

The so-called Douma 4 iconically represent the heights of the civil society uprising in Syria but their fate is also reflective of the depths of the ongoing crushing of a movement that once held so much hope and promise.

This extraordinary group of human rights activists was abducted on December 9th in 2013, allegedly by Jaish al-‘Islam, and have not been seen or heard of since. Jaish al-‘Islam is a militia that was under the control of Zahran Alloush, who has himself since been killed. Alloush was one of the approximately 1,500 jihadists that Assad released from his jails in 2011 to “poison” the revolution and legitimise his murderous and violent campaign of suppression against civilian opposition.

Our solidarity with the civilian opposition can not end with the crushing of the organised opposition forces in Aleppo and elsewhere in Syria. Our political leaders and so-called international diplomacy have yet again crumbled in the face over overwhelming violence and military force. Assad still has many tens of thousands of innocent people, including minors, detained in wretched conditions in detention centres and there are now countless thousands of people – again including children – displaced in Syria and facing a bleak and uncertain future. They will all be at the mercy of the Assad regime and its Russian and Iranian allies and desperately need our support and solidarity.

Thank you.
