AID TO SYRIA - AGAINST ALL ODDS
dublin | anti-war / imperialism | event notice Sunday June 24, 2018 08:06 by Markus and Eva Heizmann - Alliance Against Imperialist War
Public Meeting at Connolly Books, Dublin,
Eva and Markus Heizmann will be at Connolly Books, 43 East Essex Street, Dublin, Ireland on Saturday 21st July 2018 when they will present a full spoken and documentary film account of their amazing journeys to Syria in 2016 , 2017 and 2018. 2.30pm start. Free entry. All welcome.
For decades we have been dealing theoretically and practically with the subject of colonialism, imperialism and the struggle against these phenomena.
Therefore it is not surprising that we never assumed that Syria was or ever has beenin a civil war. Nevertheless and against all facts they still talk in the mainstreammedia of a ?civil war? in Syria. So that?s not true.
Syria, the Syrian people, suffer under attacks coming from abroad.
Thanks to our comrades in Vienna we came in touch with a priest from the MelkitChurch in Syria. Even though this priest lives in Austria he has, as a Syrian, astrong connection to Syria. He organized transports for charity goods to the peoplein need in Syria. Those were the days when the war against the Arabic Republic wasat its peak. We are talking about the years 2013 to 2015.
As a result of our meetings with this Melkite priest we asked the local priest inour hometown in Switzerland if he could send some money to those who do that kind ofwork. It turned out that the Catholic community of our village decided to send, intheir own right, a ship container filled with charity goods, of such a kind asclothes, winter clothes in particular, shoes, tools and so on. We had a list ofitems that were needed in Syria. On another list were the prohibited items such asmedical drugs, liquids, food and other vital goods. The group which organized theproject got a lot of solidarity, far beyond the village. In the end we?ve sent notonly one ship container but six of them to Syria.
Nuns and monks from the monastery of Mar Yakoub, located in the hills betweenDamascus and Homs, took responsibility for the distribution of these goods. This ishow we came in touch with the Melkite community there with Abbot Father Daniel, andMother Superior Agnes. Some of you might have heard of them.
