Stop this hell on earth

Sign the petition to all World Cup 2018 leaders and teams:

As citizens from around the world, we urge you not to attend Russia’s World Cup unless it stops dropping bombs on children in Syria. No country, team or player should condone these crimes against humanity by lauding the Russian regime at the games. We call on you to make sure sport is used for peace, not to sponsor war.

For 7 years Syria has been hell on earth.

President Assad's extermination of his own people has been chillingly surgical: he surrounds towns so civilians can't leave, cuts off access to food and medicine,
and drops bombs, even chemical weapons, on desperate families. 400,000 have died -- and he's just started in on a new target.

There's one reason why Assad's been able to continue with this destruction: Russia. But now there's one thing Russia may care about more than Syria:
saving the World Cup it hosts this year.

The British Prime Minister just announced no Ministers will attend. Australia, Japan and Poland may be next. And there's massive debate in Germany about a boycott. This is huge! If we can get more governments and players to join in opposing the World #Cupofshame, Russia could finally be pushed to stop the bombing.
