Syria: Protest in Support of Bashar Al Assad – Sydney 5/08/2012

We praise those enlightened Australians who took to the streets to voice their support for the Syrian people. Who are, the only ones that have to decide the future of their country.

We gladly notice that more and more people are opening their eyes and realizing that mainstream media serves an agenda and is unfortunately not dedicated to what it is supposed to be: TRUTH.

Once again, thank you to all those who took to the streets.

You are a source of inspiration for us all. In Europe, in the USA, in the Gulf, in all the countries currently plotting against Syria, we are more and more numerous to voice against neo-colonialism, foreign interference, covert regime change coups, proxy wars, military intervention.

Syria’s sovereignty has to be defended. For the sake of justice. For the sake of freedom.
