Russia: Stop Syria's horror hospitals

To the leaders of Turkey, Germany and the Arab League:

As concerned citizens from around the world, we call on you to use all peaceful means to pressure the Syrian regime to end the carnage and enable a speedy transition to democracy. We urge you to marshal international pressure on Russia to cease its support for the current regime and the deadly supply of Russian weapons, which are being used to kill peaceful protesters and humanitarian workers.

Russia: Stop Syria's horror hospitals

The Syrian regime has reached a new low -- its death squads are using ambulances and hospitals to lure and kill wounded protesters. But Russia, Syria's key backer and arms supplier, could bring an end to this carnage.

There are two governments that can influence Russia -- Turkey and Germany -- both of them support the Syrian democracy protesters and have strong ties with Russia. If we call on them to act now, they could weigh in behind mounting regional pressure and push Russian President Medvedev to stop propping up this brutal regime and help urgent global action.

Syria's horror hospitals are the latest in a string of unspeakable crimes against peaceful protesters. So far, Russia has faced little condemnation for its complicity in these atrocities, but we can change that. Let's build a massive petition to Merkel and Erdogan now to speak out and work with the Arab League to stop the brutality. Sign now, and share this with everyone -- it will be delivered to their Foreign Ministries this week.
