As UFPJ honors the 50th Anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington, U.S. Navy Ships approach Syria with the threat of an imminent attack. We can’t help but think back to the words of Dr. Martin Luther King about the travesty of war. Dr. King stated that “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

Please take action and make your voice heard. Let’s stop a US attack in Syria before it starts.

U.K. to Present U.N. Resolution Over Syria

8/28/2013 Wall Street Journal

The U.K. government said it will present a resolution to the United Nations Security Council later Wednesday condemning last week’s suspected chemical-weapons attack by the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and requesting authorization for “all necessary measures” to protect civilians.

The U.K. will call for authorization for all measures under Chapter 7 of the U.N. Charter which covers how the international community responds to threats to peace and acts of aggression. Those measures could range from breaking of diplomatic contacts and economic sanctions, to action by air, sea or land forces that may be necessary to maintain or restore international peace and security.

Britain and allies such as the U.S. and France have blamed the Syrian army for carrying out a large-scale chemical-weapons attack on the suburbs of Damascus last Wednesday which killed hundreds of people. The Syrian government has denied carrying out a chemical-weapons attack.

Russia has blocked previous U.N. resolutions condemning the actions of the Assad regime.
