Syria: A child eating from garbage due to sever hunger.


Published on Jan 23, 2014

During the tenure of Hafez Al Assad and his son, Bashar, the Syrian regime always supported the Palestinian Cause, called for the right of return and opposition and raised shiny slogans. Nowadays, Palestinians in Syria are dying out of starvation due to the siege that has been imposed on the Camp for more than 
a year so far.

These are the 29 foreign nationals executed in the US since 1976

they grow and fly on the wind like magic butterflies ... 
when we break this cry it just lays in our hands in shape
of tears and smiles ... 

my poppies have this power, to keep my cry of revolt alive !!!!!

Jan. 11 Day of Action Against Guantanamo





















JANUARY 11
DAY OF ACTION AGAINST GUANTANAMO

Rally and procession to mark the 12th anniversary of Guantánamo and to demand its closure. 

WHERE:
White House (1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW., Washington, D.C.) 

Noon - Gather for rally and witness at the White House 
(1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW) 
1 p.m. - Procession leaves from White House, ends at 2:30 p.m. 

This January 11, 2014 marks the unacceptable 12th anniversary of indefinite detention without charge or trial at Guantánamo. Join us in Washington, D.C. to witness this anniversary together, and to call on President Obama to finally fulfill his broken promise to shut it down. Obama has the power to close Guantánamo, and the new National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA 2014) just approved by Congress makes it even easier for him to do so. 158 men remain detained at Guantánamo; most should never have been detained in the first place and are entering their 13th year of being deprived of their liberty without any charge or trial. They must be tried in a fair court or released; Guantánamo must be shut down.
