Libya: Stop the Crackdown

24 Feb

From avaaz.org:

In Libya, Colonel Qaddafi’s armed forces are using machine guns and fighter jets against pro-democracy protesters — hundreds have already been killed and, without immediate international action, the situation could spiral into a national bloodbath.

The United Nations Security Council and the European Union are in emergency sessions on Libya this week. If we can pressure them to agree to a no-fly zone over Libya, a freeze of Qaddafi’s, his family’s and his high command’s assets, targeted sanctions against the regime, and international prosecution of any military officials involved in the crackdown — this could stop airforce bombings and split Qaddafi’s command structure.

We have no time to lose — the people of Libya are being slaughtered by government forces. Click to send a message directly to all the UNSC delegations, EU Foreign Ministers and the High Representative for the EU to stop the violence and share this with everyone — let’s inundate them with messages and spur them to action!
