It is also part and parcel of the global drive to encircle, contain, and subdue Russia and China, as a continuation of the neocons’ global strategy.
At the global level, the United States and NATO consider Syria as a stepping stone toward a regime change in Iran and ultimately in Russia, and are trying to bring Syria under the West and NATO control by any means possible, including financing, organizing, and arming the militant/terrorist groups fighting the Syrian government, either directly or by using their proxy states and regional allies.

Join the International Days of Action against Sanctions and Economic War
March 13-15, 2020
Sanctions are War!
End Sanctions Now!
Organize an event in your area against U.S. imposed sanctions! Help build a Global Movement with hundreds of actions around the world March 13-15
US imposed sanctions impacts a third of humanity in 39 countries. Join a mobilization against this dire form of economic warfare. Imposing starvation and disease on millions of defenseless civilians is a violation of international law and a crime against humanity. This intentional economic destabilization has awakened a growing movement of opposition.
Within a week over 1,000 organizations and individuals added their support to the International Call to Action. Volunteers translated the Call to Action into 10 languages.

Groups are discussing plans for local actions. Activists are reaching out to their networks. Each action encourages others to act.
Many organizations have been mobilizing against Sanctions and Economic War on individual countries. NOW is an opportunity to combine efforts to raise consciousness on this crucial issue. This broad campaign will include protests and demonstrations, lobbying, petition drives and all forms of educational efforts.
As an initial step for this campaign we encourage mobilizations and educational efforts during the March 13-15 International Days of Action against US imposed Sanctions and Economic War. Send details of action in your area to: info@SanctionsKill.org
Sanctions and economic blockades against Venezuela, Cuba, Iran, Russia and China are well known.

Most U.S. imposed sanctions are intentionally hidden; they don’t generate even a line of news.
Countries around the world have had all their assets and bank accounts seized by Wall Street banks. Suddenly even imports of food, essential medicines and basic spare parts are blocked. Calculated U.S. government efforts undermine development of social programs in order to impose economic restructuring that benefits U.S. corporate power.
