WHY A VALENTINE FOR THE PEOPLE OF SYRIA?
Over 6,000 people have died in Syria, due to President Bashar Al-Assad's violent crackdown on protestors demanding basic human rights. Hopes were dashed that the international community would stop the violence when Russia and China vetoed a U.N. Security Council resolution in early February 2012 that called for Assad to step down from power. Assad continues to kill civilians, and there is no accountability for his crimes.
The Syrian people need to know that Americans stand with them in solidarity in their fight for basic human rights. Signing this Valentine's Day card is a simple way to share your love and support for Syrians struggling for freedom. Raise awareness about the plight of the Syrian people by signing the card. With your participation, we can let the Syrian people know that the world is watching and that we have not forgotten them.
