This resolution was approved by the Hamilton District Labour Council on Thursday, April 19.
Condemn the Missile Strikes in Syria
Whereas the Trudeau government was complicit in a war crime and blatant violation of the UN Charter by supporting the recent foreign aggression by France, the USA and the UK against Syria;
Whereas such hasty and irresponsible actions, based on unproven claims of chemical weapons use, could not only totally destroy Syria and widen the war in the Middle East, but it could also escalate into a global confrontation involving Russia and the US, in the name of the specious doctrine of ‘responsibility to protect’;
Therefore, be it resolved that the Hamilton and District Labour Council condemns the illegal and dangerous airstrikes on Syria conducted by the US, UK and France on April 13th, and the support given to these attacks by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Be it further resolved that the Hamilton and District Labour Council make its views known in a letter to the prime minister, Global Affairs Minister, minister of defence, all local MP’s, all affiliates, and the local news media.
