Peace Keeping in Syria

In Syria, women are being bought and sold, children are being slaughtered, Kurdish and Izadi teenage girls are picking up guns and protecting their families, protecting their homes and protecting their freedom. But here in Canada we are cut between two political sides, a weak left and a far right. One is saying we will not have any involvement and one has a token presence with just bombings and selective refugee policy. We need to be there. We need to be pressuring the United Nations and the Security Council to be involved. We need a Canadian Peace Keeping mission, as a UN sanctioned movement in Syria, supporting those young women who are not leaving their lands, their homes. Canada must be there, on the side of those women, for the sake of humanity. —Shahin Sayadi, artistic director, Onelight Theatre
