The Hands Off Syria crowd had a panel at the Left Forum in NYC titled “No to U.S. Intervention in Syria–Keeping the Antiwar Movement Focused on US Wars.” It doesn’t get more politically debased than that. What kind of provincialism allows US activists to only protest US intervention? That’s to justify their support for Syrian & Russian bombing of civilians.
In response to their retreat from international solidarity they should be reminded that the anti-Vietnam War movement involved millions of people on every continent, in every major city & small hamlet marching in unison to demand “US Out Now.”
