Syrian community in Germany rallies in front of US Embassy in Berlin to protest against "Caersar Act"

BERLIN, (ST)- The Syrian students and community in Germany on Friday organized a rally in front of the US Embassy in Berlin to reject the economic siege and the so-called Caesar Act imposed by the United States on the Syrian people.

The rally was organized by the National Union of Syrian Students-Germany Branch- and the Syrian German Forum “Syrians in Germany", according to the Syrian News Agency.

Participants in the rally affirmed their solidarity with their motherland, Syria in the face of the US economic terrorism and the unfair unilateral coercive economic measures imposed on the Syrians, mainly those imposed under "Caesar Act".

Speeches during the rally affirmed that the American administration and the European Union will not be able, through their new coercive measures, to achieve the political gains that they could not achieve during the past years despite their absolute support for terrorists on the Syrian soil. They also asserted that the economic terrorism practiced by Syria's enemies will not dissuade the Syrian people from continuing their fight until they achieve complete victory over terrorism.

 

Head of the Syrian-German Forum Reem Ismael said that the Syrian people will not be broken by aggression or siege, because the Syrians have for many years sacrificed their dearest for the dignity and pride of their homeland. She saluted the heroes of the Syrian Arab Army who have achieved successive victories in their fight against terrorism.

Manaf Hassan, a lawyer, said that economic sanctions are clear violation of international legitimacy and the UN Charter. They contradict human rights and target the livelihood of the Syrian citizens.

Journalist, Aktham Suleiman pointed out that the United States is practicing economic terrorism against the Syrian people who are still fighting a war on terrorism. He indicated that the new US sanctions also target Syria's allies and come within the context of political pressure to achieve certain gains.
