Target: Hari Sastry, Director of the Office of U.S. Foreign Assistance Resources
Goal: Protect civilians from becoming victims of the Aleppo massacre.
The crisis in Aleppo, Syria is reaching critical mass as 82 civilians were reportedly executed by pro-government forces. About 80,000 still remain trapped in what is left of a tiny area that has been desecrated by the Syrian army and its allies: Russia and the Iranian-backed militias. It is dangerous for them to stay here, but they fear leaving will result in instant death. So far, one bus has been reported to have evacuated a number of civilians, but too many are still trapped and living in fear that they will be the next to die.
The situation in Aleppo has been going on for far too long now, and this year it is worse than ever. The people are facing genocide and civil defense is powerless to help them. This is a war that never should have been and is taking far too long to end, and innocent civilians are dying in the crossfire as the militia refuses to give them even a moment of peace.
Stopping the war in Aleppo is important, but so is protecting the lives of innocent civilians. We must do our part to help encourage evacuations and to protect the innocent. Sign this petition to demand that the U.S. government aid in the rescue and protection of innocent people in Aleppo.
Dear Director Sastry,
Civilians in Aleppo are under attack, with 82 people recently executed by pro-government forces and nearly 80,000 more remain trapped in what is left of an area desecrated by the Syrian army and its allies. Despite the danger, the civilians remain in the city out of fear that they will be killed instantly if they try to leave. Only one bus has been reported as successfully evacuating citizens from Aleppo.
We have let the war in Aleppo go on for too long, and things are reaching critical mass. We cannot let more innocent people be slaughtered or caught in the crossfire; We must do everything we can to protect them. Please do everything in your power to ensure that no more civilians die. In addition, please encourage all U.S. allies and trade partners to reach out to these innocent people.
[Your Name Here]
