As sociologists we know from the beginning of our careers that we will face opposition from those who are exposed by telling the truth about the world. I ask you to do the hard thing by keeping this conference open to all voices that can show evidence for their statements and theories.

I once had to show courage dealing with the Secret Service, Washigton D.C. Park Police, and city police to organize a rally in front of Capital Hill and the White House. They made threats, and they attempted to get us to cancel our plans using intimidation. But, we went forward as the atrocities perpetrated by BP's Deep Water Horizon, and a complicit Comgress, required that Americans speak out in disapproval.

I urge you, at this time in history, to hold on to our courage, that of Bernie Sanders, Michael Moore, Gandhi, Mandela, and give voice to the suffering.

You can do this!!!

Tim is a widely respected author and authority on the Syrian conflict that is causing so much hardship for the peope of the region and has caused a refugee crisis. He should be heard.

In my view, Dr. Anderson has delivered the most honest and thorough account on the war on Syria. He therefore would be a very important speaker.

A terrible crime has been committed against the sovereign country and people of Syria by the USA and enabled by their grotesque proxies, the Gulf States and western puppet governments. We owe it to the Syrian people to ensure that Tim Anderson is given a voice at the conference. If Tim Anderson is excluded, then the conference can be regarded as nothing more than a farce.

The truth needs to be told about what is really going on. Enough of that media propaganda feeding the wrong information to people.

To the US,
the Western governments,
and the Saudi-Turkey-NATO backed coalition that portray terrorist groups as “Freedom Fighters” (Jabhat al Nusra, Jaysh al Islam, Ahrar as Sham and ISIS).

Between 2011 and 2016, your masks have fallen.

You refer to the international law but you applaud its violation against a Sovereign State. You pretend to promote democracy for the Syrians but you are the harbingers of the terrorism that is prolonging their suffering.

The fact that no moderate rebels exist in Syria has been admitted by the U.S. Government on several occasions. Vice-president Joe Biden has admitted it, the Pentagon’s General Dempsey has admitted it, Tulsi Gabbard of the US Armed Services Committee has admitted it, and the Defense Intelligence Agency has admitted it. Western corporate media agencies have themselves admitted that the West is supporting al-Qaeda terrorists in Syria in an attempt to overthrow President Assad, yet, perversely, the same media systematically re-brand barbaric head-choppers and child murderers as ‘moderate rebels’, when their heinous crimes are propitious to Western foreign policy objectives.

Ignoring facts and concealing them where necessary you all played your miserable part in this orchestra of lies.

You knew that the secular Baathist government acted as a life insurance for all minorities inside Syria but you persisted in discrediting and ridiculing those who came to the defense of the persecuted minority communities.
Even worse, you continue to do so.

To what aim? To justify the bombing of a small sovereign state, whose greatest crime was to resist the imperialist order.

To come to the aid of a democratic opposition whose true face you have hidden behind a mask, perpetuating the myth of a moderate, that, in reality exists only in the meeting rooms of luxury hotels in Geneva, Doha, Paris or Ankara.

Western ‘civilization’ has become so decadent, the masses so dumbed down, so passive and apathetic, so hopelessly addicted to simplistic sound bites and spectacles that it is possible for those who keep them in such torpor to occasionally reveal the truth about Western complicity in crimes against humanity, then simply resume the tragic-comical narrative of Western benevolence. Repetition of falsity always triumphs over elucidation of truth.

The society of the spectacle only sees what it is told to see. Our crimes are transposed and boldly displayed in a virtual gallery as the crimes of others.

You are the main culprits of the ‘Massacre of the Innocents’ in Syria.

Thanks for adding your voice.
