Groups of civilian activists in the “liberated” territories of Aleppo published a statement, signed on behalf of “revolutionaries of the liberated city of Aleppo”, in which they announced a strike to protest the kidnapping of some medical doctors by members of Jabhat Al Nusra.

The statement addressed the bodies of medical and civic councils operating in Aleppo, inviting them to “assume their humanitarian responsibilities, and to maintain the security of the medical staff.”

According to the statement, the medical doctors in Aleppo oppose the kidnapping, by the counter revolutionary force and reactionary force of Jabhat Al Nusra, and called for a “general and global strike in all the hospitals and medical centers in the liberated territories of Aleppo.”

The Revolutionary Left Movement declares its support for this strike and all forms of popular struggles against both the reactionary forces and the authoritarian Assad regime, and called for renewal of the popular movement wherever this is possible.
