Poziv za prenehanje trpljenja v Siriji

Poziv za prenehanje trpljenja v Siriji

Podpišite poziv za prenehanje trpljenja v Siriji – z všečkanjem, deljenjem, retvitanjem poziva in uporabo »hashtaga« #SyriaCrisis. Več kot 120 humanitarnih organizacij in agencij Združenih narodov je danes izdalo skupen poziv k dvigu glasu za prenehanje trpljenja v Siriji. Poziv navaja tudi praktične ukrepe, ki lahko izboljšajo humanitarno pomoč ljudem v stiski v Siriji.


Pred tremi leti so voditelji humanitarnih agencij Združenih narodov izdali nujen poziv tistim, ki bi lahko ustavili konflikte v Siriji. Pozvali so k reševanju usod sirskih ljudi. Trpljenju in prelivanju krvi so rekli »dovolj«.


Tako je bilo pred tremi leti.

Danes se vojna v Siriji bliža šestemu brutalnemu letu. Prelivanje krvi se nadaljuje, trpljenje se poglablja.

Danes voditelji humanitarnih organizacij in agencij Združenih narodov pozivamo ne le vlad, temveč vsakega izmed vas – prebivalcev tega sveta – prispevajte svoj glas k prenehanju pokolov. Pozovite k dogovoru o prekinitvi ognja in vzpostavitvi miru.

Bolj kot kdaj koli prej, mora svet slišati enoten glas javnosti, ki poziva k odpravi tega nasilja. Ta konflikt in njegove posledice namreč vplivajo na vse nas.

Vplivajo na Sirce, ki so izgubili ljubljene osebe, bili prisiljeni zapustiti svoje domove in sedaj živijo v obupu, preganjani. 13,5 milijonov ljudi v Siriji potrebuje humanitarno pomoč. To ni le statistika. Gre za 13,5 milijonov posameznikov, katerih prihodnost je ogrožena.

Vplivajo na družine, ki so se – z upanjem na boljšo prihodnost – odpravile na nevarno potovanje v tuje države v iskanju zavetja. Zaradi vojne je 4,6 milijonov ljudi zbežalo v sosednje države in dlje.

Vplivajo na generacije otrok in mladih, ki – z zamujanjem priložnosti za izobraževanje in izpostavljenostjo vsem grozotam - vse pogosteje svojo prihodnost vidijo le še v luči nasilja.

Vplivajo na tiste, ki – četudi daleč od Sirije - občutijo, kako posledice te krize hromijo ulice, pisarne in restavracije v njihovih soseskah. 

Vplivajo na ljudi po vsem svetu, katerih ekonomska blaginja je posredno ali neposredno ogrožena zaradi konflikta.

Tisti, ki imate možnost in sposobnost, da trpljenje prekinete zdaj (in ga torej morate prekiniti) – ukrepajte. Dokler ne najdemo diplomatske rešitve za prenehanje spopadov, si prizadevajte za:
  • Neoviran in trajen dostop humanitarnih organizacij do vseh pomoči potrebnih v Siriji
  • Humanitarne pavze in brezpogojno, nadzorovano prenehanje ognja, kar bo omogočilo distribucijo hrane in druge nujne pomoči do civilistov, zdravstveno pomoč in vrnitev otrok v šole
  • Prenehanje napadov na civilno infrastrukturo, kar bo ohranilo šole, bolnišnice in zaloge vode varne
  • Svobodo gibanja za vse civiliste in takojšnjo odpravo vseh obleganj z vseh vpletenih strani

To so praktični ukrepi. Nobenega praktičnega razloga ni, da jih ne bi mogli izvesti, če je le volja.

V imenu naše skupne človečnosti … za milijone nedolžnih, ki so že sedaj ogromno pretrpeli … in za milijone tistih, katerih življenja in prihodnost visijo na nitki, vas pozivamo k takojšnjemu ukrepanju.

Takoj zdaj.
