Tomorrow - Omaha's Emergency Vigil to #StandWithAleppo





Omaha Call to Action - Friday, Dec 16th

Emergency Vigil to #StandWithAleppo 


When: Friday, December 16th, 2016
Time:  5 - 6:30pm
Location: 72nd & Dodge St, Omaha, NE 


Over the last few days, the Syrian government and its Russian allies have escalated their offense against the besieged neighborhoods of Aleppo. Tens of thousands remain under siege at the moment and many have lost their lives. 

News just broke of a deal between Turkish and Russian intelligence to evacuate civilians from Eastern Aleppo, but we must keep the pressure up to make sure everyone gets evacuated safely. 

As citizens of Aleppo are being massacred and the city faces total destruction by the Assad regime and the Russian government forces, we will gather this Friday, December 16 from 5 - 6:30pm on the northwest corner of 72nd & Dodge for an emergency, community-wide vigil to #StandWithAleppo, sending a message to Syrians that they are not alone.
Please join us in showing solidarity with people of Aleppo, and in demanding an immediate end to the indiscriminate aerial bombardment of residential areas in Aleppo. Join us in raising your voice to support safe and free movement for civilians and aid convoys out of and into the city.

Please share widely with your friends. Feel free to bring your own homemade signs and candles.
Don't turn away. Our voices are their voices, and we need to make sure they're heard. This isn't an invitation, it's a call for humanity for anyone who's willing to join in their voice.
Aleppo has been devastated beyond words as the world watches in silence. It is time to break the silence and raise our voice for Aleppo and Syria at large.
SHOW TRUE SOLIDARITY FOR THE SYRIAN PEOPLE BY STANDING IN THE COLD THIS FRIDAY FROM 5 - 6:30 PM ON THE CORNER OF 72nd & DODGE ST.
