Brisbane residents appalled by the slaughter in Aleppo last week joined global protests against the involvement of our governments in supporting and prolonging the civil war in Syria. The ongoing annihilation of the people of Aleppo by the Syrian Government in an attempt to wipe out the rebel strongholds in the city was the catalyst for the protests.
