US anti-war delegation returns from Syria

In-depth Report:
On September 20, a group of U.S. Anti-War activists returned from a trip to Syria. The delegation that visited Syria included Sara Flounders of the International Action Center, former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clarke, John Parker of Workers World Party, John Achi of “Arab Americans 4 Syria,” and Dedon Kamathi of the All-African People’s Revolutionary Party. Sara Flounders said the trip was planned in response to the U.S. threat of war.

Many on the delegation said that they feel that Syria is being targeted, not because of chemical weapons, but because is it an independent Arab State. Sara Flounders said she was able to meet with victims of the foreign backed insurgents who are committing atrocities throughout the country.

Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clarke said that being in Syria reinforced his opposition to U.S. militarism.

The delegation was also able to meet Syria’s President, Bashar Assad.

Though a deal has been reached, and the government has agreed to turn over its chemical weapons, the threat of a strike is still looming. The group that traveled to Syria made clear that they intend to do all they can to prevent any U.S. attack.
