behalf of the Civil Community of Benghazi and Derna cities in the eastern part
of Libya, we demand that the Inter-Agency Coordination Group for Mine Action
and the fourteen United Nations partners involved in mine service action
immediate action to assist in clearing
the liberated areas from mines and remnants
left by the terrorist group.
mines kill and maim tens of defenseless innocent civilians, mostly minors,
everyday in Benghazi and Derna. Additionally, they:
- frighten returning refugees,
- stop farmers from harvesting,
- hinder economic and social
terrorists planted their mines at the entrances, kitchens and bedrooms of
- delay reconstruction after war.
We are in emergency situation where there is no time to train
staff. We demand the United Nation Department of Peacekeeping and the United
Nation Mine Action Coordination Centre
to start an urgent humanitarian
intervention through International NGOs and commercial companies. Mine detection dog program to locate and
define the boundaries of minefields is needed.
We promise that all local NGOs will collaborate and
coordinate to give all possible assistance. Further, we would like to emphasize that the
liberated areas are mostly free of the terrorists’ risks except of what they have
left of mines and remnants.
the United Nation collaboration, we believe that Benghazi-Derna model could be
as successful as Kosovo model since the mines are in contained area. Also, we,
the civil community, will push hard for Libya to sign and ratify Ottawa Treaty
as soon as we have a stable united government.
, for this human cause, would help rescue an innocent life, so don'thesitate to VOTE
