We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Kafraya & Foua: the forgotten terrorist siege

Click here to access article by Vanessa Beeley from her blog The Wall Will Fall.

Recent reports indicate that the Aleppo, Syria's largest city, is under siege by Syrian government forces who appear to be within days of liberating the city from terrorist forces backed by the US, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Britain, etc.--the usual Empire allies. 

This report is of villages southwest of Aleppo and its people who have been suffering the ravages of the Empire's war against Syria for five years. However this period appears to be coming to a close, if the villages haven't already been liberated by the Syrian army.

Beeley's report is in sharp contrast to reports by corporate media (if you need an example, read this from the Empire's number one newspaper) located in countries that make up this imperial NATO Empire and Israel, or in media permitted to function in the medieval Muslim countries of Saudi Arabia and associates. 
The people of Kafarya and Foua maintain their valiant struggle against the forces that bear down upon them and they resist in silence, an externally imposed silence.  Like so many of the Syrian people they know only too well who is the enemy in their midst and it is not the Syrian Arab Army.  Their Army is the Syrian people, as Mother Agnes Mariam de la Croix expressed so eloquently.  They know their enemy are the NATO  US proxy thugs camped among them bringing pestilence and death.  These preying locusts will be driven out of Syria by the peoples Army and their allies and the children of Kafarya and Foua will be liberated from the pall of terror that has been hanging over them for almost 5 years.
Once again, it looks like someone is lying, grossly lying about massive war crimes. So, who are you going to believe?
