EMERGENCY PEACE ACTION FOR SYRIA
'24 Hour 0n-going Peace Strike Picket'
Outside the US Embassy, Grosvenor Square W1A 2LQ
Starting 7pm Monday 3rd August 2013
Around a dozen people showed up in Queens Square, Wrexham this morning at short notice in visible opposition to the threat of western military action in Syria. The government may have lost the Commons vote last night but there's every chance it won't be able to resist getting involved in some way if the US goes ahead with an attack.
Among those protesting today were two enthusiastic children who made sure the placards were displayed to their best advantage throughout the morning and a Syrian friend who has alreadly lost five cousins and numerous acquaintances in the conflict.

On May 29, 2012, 13 people were arrested in La Paz, Bolivia, as part of an antiterrorism witch hunt directed against anarchists in response to a series of arsons, bombings, and sabotage claimed by the FAI-FRI and related to government plans to build a highway through TIPNIS, a protected rainforest. Subsequently, most of those arrested have been released, in some cases after snitching to prosecutors. Two people remain locked up. This article is an attempt to cut through the pervasive misinformation surrounding the case, and facilitate solidarity for those who deserve it. It is also an attempt to learn certain practices of communication in anarchist circles that aid repression and hinder solidarity.
Together with comrades in La Paz we have convoked an international day of solidarity for May 29, 2013. We intend this article to lend clarity and background to that convocation.

Bradley Manning, a gay soldier in a homophobic military environment, risked his life and liberty to bring us evidence about the wars being fought in our names. His trial has been going on since 3 June, he has been found guilty on charges that could add up to a sentence of 136 years. His trial continues in Fort Meade, Maryland, where evidence is being presented in relation to sentencing. He needs our support and solidarity.
"At this point I would throw out some questions... What about the people who sent Manning to Iraq? Let's hear some things about them..."
