Avaaz, which presents itself as an alternative media and an independent voice, is part of a corporate public relations campaign. Avaaz will report on civilian casualties in Syria without mentioning the influx of US-Saudi sponsored terrorists.
Who is behind the atrocities in Syria?
Avaaz will casually blame the government of Bashar Al Assad for killing civilians. It will accuse the government of using chemical weapons when the evidence amply confirms that the US-NATO-GCC supported rebels were behind the August 21st chemical weapons attacks.
The deployment of death squads supported by the Western military alliance is never mentioned.
Avaaz does not acknowledge that government forces are fighting a terrorist insurgency.
Nor do they mention that the US government has direct contacts with Al Qaeda affiliated rebels.
Avaaz calls for an opinion poll ahead of the Geneva talks.
Avaaz calls for a ceasefire.
That ceasefire can be achieved if the US and its NATO and GCC allies cease their support to the Al Qaeda affiliated terrorists.
Let Syrians decide says Avaaz.
Who are the warring parties, Avaaz is silent on the matter. Is this a civil war or a war of aggression?
The atrocities are not being committed by government forces but by paid mercenaries. The Western military alliance has blood on its hands.
Who is paying these mercenaries? Who is training them? Why is Avaaz spreading lies? Who is behind Avaaz?
Below is an excerpt of a recent Avaaz report, which constitutes an unsubtle form of media propaganda (emphasis added):
I am from Homs, Syria — a city under siege, where children and babies have been tortured and bombed. It is hell on earth, and it is hard to have hope, but right now I see a chance and I am urgently calling on everyone to help.
In 48 hours, for the first time ever, all the major powers behind this war are going to meet. All parties say they want to hear the Syrian people’s demands, and they want to show their own public they are doing something. So here is how we get ‘a seat at the table’ — we commission a Syrian opinion poll, set up a live feed from Syrians to get clear demands presented to negotiators at the talks, and a million of us from across the world back the call for a ceasefire.
