After the use of chemical weapons in the Damascus suburbs of Ghouta, early on August 21st, news began to circulate on using military force by the U.S. and the U.K. against Syria.

A growing number of pacifists have shown a tendency to oppose the military action on Syria while not providing any alternative option to hold the responsible party accountable.

Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom takes an anti-war stance and calls yet again for choosing peace over violence, but also brings forward practical, legal and most importantly peaceful proposal to seek justice.
