URGENT! Tell Congress: Vote NO to War on Syria!

SDS is calling on students and progressives everywhere to call their U.S. Representatives and Senators to VOTE NO to war on Syria! When Congress returns to DC next week, on September 9, their votes will determine whether and how a war on Syria may begin. The U.S. military machine brings nothing but terror, death, and destruction everywhere it goes. We have seen the horrific results of the U.S. invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S. bombing of Libya, U.S. drone attacks in Yemen, Pakistan and elsewhere. We have heard the lies of “weapons of mass destruction,” that were used to justify the invasion of Iraq that resulted in over one million Iraqi deaths, and now we hear the United States banging the war drums and repeating the same lies to justify the bombing of Syria. U.S. bombing of Syria would result in the senseless murder of untold numbers of innocent civilians and children. TELL CONGRESS TO VOTE NO!!
