Progressive Europeans Are Marching Into Aleppo To Wave White Flags

Manifesto

It’s time to act. We can’t sit in front of our laptops and do nothing. We can’t drink cafe latte and do nothing. We’ve had enough of clicking the sad or shocked faces on facebook and writing “this is terrible” and “we’re so powerless”.

No, we are not! We are far too many!
We are going to Aleppo. From Germany to Aleppo, along the so-called “refugee route”, just the opposite direction.

We’ve been taught submission to war. We’ve been taught to be afraid of the powerful who pull the strings. We’ve been persuaded to take sides with “the good” and blame “the bad”, to accept the division of people into the better and the worse, the ones who can sleep safely in their own beds and the ones who have to flee for their lives. “That’s just the way it is” – we’ve been told.

But we refuse to take it anymore. We’ve just withdrawn our consent. We’re ready to deny powerlessness.

We want to go and help people like us, who just weren’t lucky enough to be born in Berlin, London or Paris. We will not tolerate the siege of Aleppo anymore. Civilians for civilians, we will walk, hand in hand, from Berlin, through the Czech Republic, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Macedonia, Greece and Turkey – to Aleppo.

It’s a long way. Just as long as the refugees had to come to save their lives. Now, we want to do the same to save some other lives. And we’re marching together in a big, big group. We are just random, average people. We don’t represent any specific political parties or organizations.

We’re carrying these white flags to let the whole world know our message: Enough is enough. This war has to stop!

And this war can be stopped. This war can be ended with a few strokes of a pen. But even if we still have to wait for that, we can’t wait and see the suffering of the people of Aleppo. No one deserves what they are going through. It’s no longer a “normal” war, if children’s hospitals become the targets.

We don’t want to just observe it from a safe distance. And we won’t! We’re determined to shake this feeling of helplessness and start to act. We’re determined, we’re united and we will march as long as it takes. For peace.

Do you also think it’s enough? Do you also want to do more than crying in front of your laptop? Our tears and anger have to be transformed into action. We’ve been passive for too long.

This is our action. We are going to Aleppo. What will happen then? Will they send bombs on our 5000-people crowd? Will they dare to do that?! You think we are crazy? We think that it’s crazy to sit and wait until everybody dies. Let’s not wait. Let’s just go there and put an end to this madness.

We are starting on 26th December, from Berlin. In a group of 3000 people. Will you join us?

Progressive Europeans are planning to march into Aleppo– you know, the major Syrian city in the middle of the civil war– to wave white flags. That’s right. These precious snowflakes are marching straight into the war-torn city to demonstrate.

No, this is not The Onion. These kooks are completely serious.

I can think of one or two...
