Solidarity statement with the Syrian uprising by OccupyLondon

In Syria, the uprising against the oppressive regime of Bashir-al-Assad has continued for almost a year.
Thousands have been killed, many have lost their homes, livelihoods and loved ones.
In the recent weeks the violent and murderous attacks by the Assad regime have escalated and the international community is failing to respond to the oppression and humanitarian crisis.

We, Occupy London, condemn the violence against Syrian people and support their uprising for freedom.
Throughout the winter, Occupy London has engaged with the Syrian community in London.
We have organised events to discuss the Syrian situation and show solidarity: This has included talks about human rights as well as live video links to the Syrian protests in November and December and a General Assembly in front of the Syrian embassy on Friday, the 10th  February.

As part of a worldwide movement for equality and democracy Occupy London stands in solidarity with all struggles for freedom and justice.
In a globalised world where the interests of elites, dictators and corporate powers are deeply intertwined, no uprising is isolated and resistance needs to be built beyond borders. This is why our thoughts are with our sisters and brothers in Syria, to whom we want to say: Your fight is our fight.

About author
We are just like you, citizens of the world fed up with the critical situation and we believe a real change can be achieved through the coordination of non violent actions and self-managed alternatives around the world. There must be a better way of dealing with the survival and enjoyment of our life, we believe in consensus and in non-hierarchical organization. We believe that another world is possible, where nobody has to die of hunger while others throw food away. We don’t have flags and we fight the borders crossing them. We try to be in the best place at the good moment, from Brussels to Lisbon, from Madrid to Athens, reporting but also acting. We come from activist groups, hacking platforms or post capitalist projects and we participated a lot in the Spanish revolution since the beginning. We leave our respective assemblies for this international project of global coordination but we keep in touch, sending back information and visiting regularly. We are open to integrate new people to our project or to help the creation of new teams. More information about our way to work in the protocol.
