Pelto signs onto Revive the Peace Movement Letter entitled The Russia-US Bombing Deal Will Bring Neither Peace Nor Justice
Revive the Peace Movement Network (RPM) is a broad-based network of organizations working to promote greater peace and harmony in the world.  In their letter below, they (1) reject U.S.-Russia collaboration for more bombing, (2) call for immediate food drops to besieged areas in Syria and (3) explicitly condemn the Assad/Russian Killings as well as U.S. Bombing
As the Green Party candidate for Congress in Connecticut’s 2nd Congressional District, I sign this important letter entitled, The Russia-US Bombing Deal Will Bring Neither Peace Nor Justice and call on all candidates across the political spectrum to join the effort to promote peace.
The Russia-US Bombing Deal Will Bring Neither Peace Nor Justice
There can be no doubt that the Syrian people have paid a terrible price for their struggle for freedom. They know the pain and suffering of being unable to feed their children, of being the targets of relentless and merciless bombing. We share their desire to see peace with justice in Syria. Unfortunately, the Kerry-Lavrov negotiations have thus far brought neither. The “agreement” being sold as a “peace deal” for Syria has thus far been a rotten bargain that extends the bombing. The wanton destruction of the aid caravan on September 19th brought the sorely unsuccessful “ceasefire” phase to a barbaric conclusion, and what is proposed to follow will be even worse – far worse.
The Assad regime’s forces continued their attacks throughout the so-called “ceasefire” of September 12th-18th. The day after the deal was announced, a hundred people died from regime attacks. On September 16th, regime warplanes targeted and bombed the White Helmets’ Head Quarters in Al Tamanna, rendering it inoperable.
The sieges that seek to impose submission to the regime through starvation still affect hundreds of thousands, and promises to allow aid convoys to reach the besieged areas during the “ceasefire” never materialised. This demonstrates beyond all doubt that only air-drops of food will prevent the mass starvation of entire populations under siege.
Millions have been driven from their homes as a result of Putin and Assad’s bombing campaign. Tens of thousands rot in Assad’s torture-to-death prisons.
These issues must be addressed to bring peace through justice to Syria. An expansion of the targets to be bombed by the US Coalition, and cooperation in bombing these targets between the US and Russia, which objectively means cooperation with the Assad regime, cannot bring Syrians peace nor justice.
We say:
Stop the bombing! Don’t expand it!
End the sieges! #DropFoodNotBombs! Immediate airdrops of food to the besieged! UN Aid must reach the people, not be diverted to supply a war criminal regime! Aid to the hungry is Pelto signs onto Revive the Peace Movement Letter entitled The Russia-US Bombing Deal Will Bring Neither Peace Nor Justice - Wait What?:
