JTMP Supports Syrian Opposition and Calls For Assad To Step Down

JAN 31, 2012 – JTMP supports the civilian Syrian opposition and calls for President Bashar al-Assad to step down. Assad's security forces have used brutal tactics on peaceful civilians, that have called for major reforms and more freedom. Assad has been widely accused of major human rights violations in trying to hold on to power. JTMP believes that the only way to peace is for Assad to step down, and the people of Syria form a new government that represents them and secures their human and civil rights. 

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton attended a UN debate on a resolution calling for President Assad to step down, Josha Hersh on HuffPo has a great post up about it here.
