Dismantle Chemical Weapon Stockpiles in Syria

Bashar al-Assad by Fabio Ridrigues Pozzebom

Target: Syrian President Bashar al-Assad

Goal: Stop stockpiling dangerous chemical weapons.

United Nations inspectors in Syria have found small traces of deadly chemical weapons including sarin and ricin in drainage pipes and artillery shells. In 2013, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad agreed to dismantle the country’s chemical weapon arsenal, but recently the government has been accused of using chlorine bombs in insurgent-held areas. Therefore, officials believe that finding these traces of chemicals may mean that Bashar al-Assad is still stockpiling chemical weapons.

While the Syrian government denies dropping chlorine bombs, witnesses say that the helicopters that are dropping them are only accessible to the Syrian government. Urge Bashar al-Assad to dismantle chemical weapon stockpiles if there are any.


Dear Bashar al-Assad,

In 2013, you signed an international treaty agreeing to dismantle any stockpiles of chemical weapons you may have possessed. Recent inspections by the United Nations have found traces of sarin and ricin, indicating that you may still be stockpiling these dangerous weapons.

Using dangerous chemical weapons will not bring peace to Syria, and directly violates your agreement. We the undersigned urge you to dismantle any arsenal of chemical weapons that you may have to protect the people of Syria.
