Stop the War Event: 'Don't Bomb Syria'

RR attended an event for Stop the War titled 'Don't Bomb Syria' on 6 October. The event's discussion centred around UK policy around Syria and the group's strong view that the UK should not get involved at all. Unfortunately, none of the panel speakers were Syrian, and the Syrian voice was marginalised throughout the event.


Stop the War Event in Bolton

We spoke at a Stop the War event on Syria on 8 October hosted in Bolton. The small audience was very engaging, and we discussed the practicality and feasibility of any UK action towards Syria.


Stop the War Panel on Syria without Syrian Speakers

Rethink Rebuild Society has had no response to an email it sent to Stop the War on 23 September requesting an opportunity to speak at its Manchester event on Syria on 6 October. The current panel features four speakers, none of whom are Syrian, thereby framing a discussion on Syria without input from the most important party to the issue - the Syrian people themselves.
