Women from Turkey to Switzerland!
After three years of horrendous fighting, a death toll now exceeding 100,000 and more than seven million Syrians forced to leave their homes, Syrian peace talks will finally take place at the United Nations in Montreux, Switzerland on January 22, 2014.
We are excited to announce that CODEPINK and a coalition of women’s groups have launched _WOMEN LEAD TO PEACE_ , a global alliance of women’s organizations calling for an immediate ceasefire in Syria, humanitarian aid for the refugees, and the full participation of women at the peace negotiations. We will be mobilizing a physical presence of hundreds of women from all over the world to meet in Switzerland from January 20-22.
WE WANT TURKISH WOMEN TO SHOW THEIR SUPPORT TO THE SYRIAN WOMEN, AND TO SHARE THEIR STORIES DURING THE SUMMIT. WILL YOU JOIN US AND ENDORSE AS AN INDIVIDUAL OR ORGANIZATION?
Women will arrive in Switzerland by January 20, 2014 to PLAN AND LEARN FROM EACH OTHER . On January 21, we will hold a Summit with testimonies from Syrian women and other women from all over the world. On January 22, the day of the official peace talks, participants will be inside and out with CREATIVE, BEAUTIFUL AND EXCITING PROTESTS.
This invitation is open to all peace-loving people. We would love to have you endorse the campaign as an organization or an individual! To endorse and learn more, EMAIL PERRINE. This is our opportunity to amplify the voices of women from all over the world, especially from conflict zones. You can make it happen, by DONATING
