Stop the Turkish invasion of Syria! Rally at Turkish Consulate
October 15, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Stop the Turkish invasion of Syria!
Stop this attack on the Kurds!
Stop U.S./NATO support to the Turkish army!
-Turkey has begun a military invasion of Syria. The U.S. should join the EU in formally calling for Turkey to end its offensive. The United States should throw its full weight behind diplomatic efforts to replace the offensive with a ceasefire in northeast Syria.
-As a NATO ally, the Turkish military is supplied with state-of-the-art weapons by the U.S., now being used against the Kurds. The U.S. should immediately cut off all military assistance and weapons sales to Turkey.
-Trump appears to be basing Turkey policy on his long-time personal relationship with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a relationship developed alongside decades of Trump family business dealings in Turkey.
-Legitimate concerns about the Kurds should not be allowed to lend support to those making excuses for endless U.S. interventions. More U.S. troops stationed around the world in conflict zones is not the solution.
-Foreign intervention in Syria has only prolonged the civil war, leading to the deaths of thousands and the displacement of millions. All foreign forces must leave Syria immediately.
