Give peace a chance

Denmark’s far-left is urging the government to seek an alternative to military action against Syria.

Enhedslisten (EL) said it will not vote in favour of allowing Danish forces to participate in an attack in retaliation for the presumed chemical weapons attack in Syria last week.

Enhedslisten is instead calling for negotiations and increased humanitarian aid. “It’s wrong to drop bombs and to arm rebels that may or may not be on our side,” said EL spokesperson Nicolaj Villumsen.
