Syria: Assad to the ICC

To all members of the UN Security Council and the Arab League:

We call on you to stop the deadly terror in Syria by immediately referring cases against the regime to the International Criminal Court. Both the UN Human Rights Council and a new Avaaz report have found evidence that Assad's senior officials and security forces have committed crimes against humanity. It is time to stop this murderous brutality and protect the Syrian people, who are risking everything to reclaim their rights and their dignity.

We may have a new way to end the horror-show in Syria.

President Assad kicked out all foreign media and human rights organizations to conduct his bloodbath in the shadows. But the Avaaz team and members have covertly interviewed hundreds of victims and family members to create an authoritative count of tortured, imprisoned and killed. Our reports have been covered in dozens of news articles and shows - last week in the NYT, AP, CNN, and many more.

We've just released a powerful new report on torture that show links to top regime officials -- with this evidence, we can help bring a case before the International Criminal Court (ICC) that Assad and his henchmen are guilty of crimes against humanity. An indictment from the court would seriously increase the crippling international pressure that is beginning to unravel Assad's rule. The UN Security Council meets in days and can refer a case to the ICC - let's send them an avalanche of public demand for justice for Syria's brave protesters -- sign the petition on the right, and send a message to key Ambassadors.
