The Syria Solidarity Campaign (SSC) is based in the UK and includes a network of activists and supporters committed to solidarity with the Syrian Revolution.

The main purpose of the Syria Solidarity Campaign is to amplify the voices of Syrians struggling for peace and freedom. We want to work with all existing campaigns and organisations to help build a campaign that can assist the Syrian people in their struggle for a democratic, just, free and pluralist Syria. In addition, we want to bring Syria’s war criminals to justice.

We support the popular revolution in Syria and its principles. We ask for real support for the Syrian people. We oppose all support for the Assad regime, which is unjustifiable in light of its war crimes. We are critical of the parties who provide political and material support to the Assad regime, and of those that have abandoned the Syrian people and the revolution. We support the right of Syrians to defend themselves from the regime of Assad, its allies, and from ISIS. We demand the immediate withdrawal of all foreign occupation forces. We call for the protection of civilians all across Syria in accordance with the Geneva Convention.

We support the unconditional right of Syrian refugees to come to Britain and Europe, humanitarian relief to the refugees, and to the internally displaced and besieged areas in Syria. We also call for Britain and the international community to uphold their legal and moral obligations to refugees. We campaign for the release of all political detainees in Syria who are undergoing systematic torture and abuse.

We support all efforts towards a political settlement for a democratic, just, pluralist and united Syria, where all Syrians can freely determine their future.
