In the name of humanity, solidarity and responsibility, and
in accordance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, taking into
account the respect for human life, we appeal to you to play an active role in
the process of solving the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. Despite all appeals
and warnings, issued by the United Nations and humanitarian organizations, to
draw attention of the international diplomacy, cries for help of victims of the
war in Yemen have been met by silence. The three–year long conflict that world
media named "The Forgotten War", has caused the biggest humanitarian
catastrophe of the 21st century. Therefore,
it should be stopped! Crimes, committed by warring sides and the consequent
agony of the Yemeni citizens should be stopped now!
For the people of Yemen, ending the war is a matter of life
and death. For the so-called democratic world, helping to end the war may be
one of the last chances to affirm its commitment to humanity and dignity of
people. The absurdity and cynicism of our times have reached their limits, if
not already surpassed them. Instead of trying to save the planet, the human
race and its elected political leaders are on the route to self-destruction.
As civil initiative and citizens of the world, we are
therefore asserting our initiative - our civil and moral responsibility towards
our civilization. We call attention to the immense and intolerable suffering of
Yemeni people, who will die unless we stop this senseless massacre. The numbers
of victims are staggering, raising daily. Today, 5.2 million children are in
danger of dying from hunger. The statistics reveal that 35% of all citizens are
undernourished. The cholera has reached all Yemeni provinces. According to
findings of the NGO, Save the Children, in the last three years, 85.000
children under the age of five have died because of this war. Entire
generations do not go to school. Millions of people are displaced and homeless.
21 million of Yemeni citizens urgently need humanitarian aid!
- 1. call on diplomats of the European Union, and the international community to actively
participate in actions to end the war in Yemen,
- 2. ask for your support for the arrival of the UN peace keeping
forces to Yemen, so that the distribution of the humanitarian aid will be
possible in the port of Al Hudayda, while the international peace negotiations
are taking place at the conference to end the war in Yemen,
- 3. ask for your support that Al Hudayda becomes a safe haven
as soon as possible, because it is the only port of entry for the humanitarian aid,
- 4. ask for your pledge that the citizens of Yemen will
receive enough food, medicine and other aid, in order to prevent hunger and
- 5. ask for your effort to achieve an immediate opening of
the Sana Airport.
It is unforgivable that in the 21st century, some vulnerable
countries have been turned into mass concentration camps. When we see pictures of
emaciated children, thin as feathers, dying in full view of the world, we
cannot but think of the former death camps. During the WWII, people were
transported into camps to be murdered, but now people are being murdered in
their homeland. This is unacceptable. It is against the principles of
civilization. It is inexcusable to murder a human being. And it is even a
greater crime to murder children! Children, innocent children, are the most
vulnerable targets. Why must they die? For the sake of greed and human evil.
For the sake of human vampires, who lack basic humanity and possess no empathy.
Stop! No more!
