Ten years after the invasion of Iraq, launched in violation of international law and based on lies about "weapons of mass destruction," the Obama administration is once again dragging the American people into war on false pretenses, this time against Syria.

After a decade of invasions and military occupations, the population is hostile to war. Aware of growing opposition to its policies at home and abroad, the US ruling class is systematically dismantling whatever remains of democratic rights. The government illegally records every email and phone call, spies on journalists, murders US citizens without trial, and imprisons and persecutes those who expose its crimes.

This drive towards dictatorship is rooted in the vast growth of inequality, which has eroded the social base of American democracy. The financial oligarchy, whose wealth is amassed through fraudulent conspiracies against the people, seeks to defend its wealth at any cost.

If war and dictatorship are to be stopped, the working class and youth must fight back! The SEP and its sister parties internationally call for the organization of demonstrations, rallies, teach-ins and other popular manifestations of anti-war sentiment against the war in Syria. These must be organized in workplaces and schools throughout the country

The working class must be armed with an independent program and perspective, based on the fight for equality and socialism. The Socialist Equality Party and International Youth and Students for Social Equality are holding a series of public meetings to expose the causes of war and the destruction of democratic rights and organize opposition.
