LET SYRIANS SORT OUT SYRIA. I spoke last night in the Dáil in support of lifting the sanctions imposed on Syria. These sanctions hurt the poorest, sickest, most vulnerable people, especially children. People Before Profit amended the motion to also condemn the slaugher of the Syrian people by the muderdous Assad regime and oppose all imperialist intervenitions by the US, Russia and regional powers. One correction: in my speech I referred to the fact that Assad’s father, also a dictator, slaughtered 30,000 people in a town called Homs. In fact it was Hama.
