A demonstration on 29 January at the UN Peace Talk in Geneva… Photo taken from PlanetSyria Facebook page

I wanted to share this protest, which I read about on Facebook.  Planet Syria wrote:

Syrian activists and solidarity groups are launching a Siege Soup Kitchen for delegates of the peace talks in Geneva. We invite delegates to give up their fancy lunch and come taste for themselves the dishes Syrians under siege are cooking right now to stay alive. Our specialties will be “herb soup” and “leaf soup”. Our servers President Obama and President Putin.

On the menu today:
– Green soup
– Spicy leaf soup
– Grass & leaf soup

One million people are under siege in Syria, deprived of food and medical care. They are forced to be creative in order to survive.

We need to see real action. A solution for Syria does not begin in Geneva. It begins in Madaya, Moadamiyeh, Daraya, Homs, Deir Ezzor, Aleppo… It begins when world leaders are serious about stopping war crimes and protecting civilians.

More brilliant food-themed activism like these films.  What can I do with my profound belief in non-violence if not support the creative and incessant work by the people and activists most effected by the violence of this war? Best wishes to them, and really hoping something beneficial comes out of the Peace Talks.  If you are a person for whom prayer is meaningful, do it!
