Rethink Rebuild Society had a meeting with Jeff Smith MP in Parliament on 15th June. We discussed civilian protection and condemnation of Assad’s war crimes in Syria. We were especially pleased that Mr Smith has agreed to take part in our fundraising Fast-a-thon on 1st July to help break the sieges.
On 15 June Rethink Rebuild Society met with the office of Jo Cox MP to discuss civilian protection in Syria. Jo's office is central to coordinating efforts surrounding Syria in Parliament, and as such we discussed future steps to take in order to work towards civilian protection, accountability, and aid drops.
We participated in the Didsbury Festival on 15 June alongside the Manchester branch of Amnesty International. Amnesty's stall was dedicated to raising awareness about Syria. Attendees were able to get a 360 degree visual experience in some of the affected areas in Syria, learn more about the situation, and sign action alerts to ask their MPs to take action.
