After months of bloody crackdown on protesters the Arab League voted Sunday to suspend Syria from its membership. The Guardian explains.
“Syria has been told it will be suspended from the Arab League – and faces the threat of sanctions ... if it does not agree to end its bloody crackdown on anti-government protesters. The vote in Cairo took place after Syria had failed to abide by an agreement ... to end violence against its people...”
Immediately following the decision protesters took to the streets in a show of support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. One protester tells CNN...
“We came to make our voices heard and let the Arab League know they are traitors and as long as they are traitors we do not care about them or their decisions.”
And at a press conference held Monday in Cairo Syria’s Foreign Minister strongly condemned the league’s vote. Euronews has the video.
“The Arab League’s decision to suspend Syria and take further action is a very dangerous move both now and for the future of the Arab countries within this organization and also for the Arab Leagues objectives.”
But as pressure mounts in Syria some leaders are calling for a change -- urging al-Assad to step down. According to the New York Times, King Abdullah of Jordan said...
“I believe, if I were in his shoes, I would step down. If Bashar has the interest of his country, he would step down, but he would also create an ability to reach out and start a new phase of Syrian political life.”
Despite the threat of sanctions-- violence against protesters continued in Syria over the weekend. The Telegraph reports...
“...another 28 people were killed in protests in Syria on Sunday. The total number of deaths since the uprising began in March is now over 3,500.”
