Urgent solidarity needed with the city of Salamieh under the threat of a massacre by the Islamic State

Saturday 4 April 2015

The city of Salamieh is surrounded and has been suffering a total blockade for several days by the ultra reactionary movement of the Islamic State threatens to commit a massacre against the local population.

On March 31, 2015, soldiers of the Islamic State committed a massacre killing 48 civilians, including women and children, in the village Maboujah, located at 25 kilometers north of Salamieh. The majority of the people had left the village before the arrival of the Islamic State.

The city of Salamieh was one of the first city in Syria to raise against the bloody Assad regime at the start of the revolution in 2011. The revolutionaries of the city suffered a fierce crackdown at the hands of the security services and militias of the regime in recent years. The revolutionary spirit and the original objectives of the revolution for democracy, social justice and equality nevertheless persisted and continued to be upheld by the numerous revolutionaries still in the city through popular demonstrations and other civil campaigns.

It is the duty of all revolutionary and internationalist forces to support the local population of Salamieh and revolutionaries of the city against the threat of a massacre by the Islamic State.

The revolutionaries of Salamieh launched a few days ago a campaign “Salamieh is being slaughtered” on social networks to alert the world of the danger they are facing.

It is absolutely necessary to bring our total and immediate solidarity with the people of Salamieh and our comrades of the Revolutionary Left Movement in Syria in the city under the threat of a new massacre by the Islamic State.

No passaran,

They have not passed

No to the criminal Assad regime and no to the reactionary and fundamentalist forces

All power and wealth to the people
