Dear GVCP member,

This action alert comes from the ANSWER coalition.  Here’s the link:

http://www.answercoalition.org/hands_off_syria_defeat_h_r_5732

The page you use for signing the petition is user-friendly.  However, when I was checking the link, there was an offensive ad visible.  That happened only once, but I thought it was a good idea to warn everyone.

Action Alert: Hands off Syria!  Defeat H.R. 5732!

SIGN THE PETITION to demand that Congress reject the pro-intervention H.R. 5732. The true threat to Syrian civilians is the U.S. war machine and its regime change operations – both covert and overt. Hands off Syria!

Congress is currently debating an extremely dangerous, pro-war bill called House Resolution 5732, misleadingly titled the "Syrian Civilian Protection Act." It is essentially a war cry for intervention in Syria. Not only would it tighten the sanctions that have been a centerpiece of U.S. regime change efforts, but it would require the president to assess the possibility of enforcing a "no-fly zone" over the country.

No-fly zones are often packaged and sold to the public as a humanitarian measure. But as the decades of brutal war waged on the people of the Middle East by the U.S. government and its support for the most repressive dictatorships in the region show, this cannot possibly be the true motivation behind such a move. In fact, a no-fly zone is a prelude to a war, and involves extensive bombing to cripple the targeted country’s ability to control its own airspace.

SIGN THE PETITION to demand that Congress reject the pro-intervention H.R. 5732. The true threat to Syrian civilians is the U.S. war machine and its regime change operations – both covert and overt. Hands off Syria!

Our voice can be decisive. In August and September 2013, there was a major push for open war on Syria based on the dubious and improbable pretext of the Syrian government attacking civilians with chemical weapons. But the huge public outcry helped force the war makers to back down.
