UN: Stop Russia from Helping Assad Commit Atrocities

Bashar Al-Assad has been committing crimes against humanity and the Syrian people for 15 months. Yet, the Russian government continues to support Al-Assad’s atrocities, both through their vetoes in the United Nations Security Council and the constant and documented flow of arms from Russia to help Al-Assad kill innocent civilians. Russia’s role in this atrocity has yet to end, however. Recent United States intelligence indicates that the Russian government has prepared a shipment of military helicopters to send to Syria (See: http://www.cnn.com/2012/06/12/world/russia-helicopters/index.html.) These military helicopters will only serve to dramatically escalate the attacks on innocent civilians by regime forces.
The United Nations Security Council has failed in its duty to give security to the people of the world as Russia advocates for mass slaughter. It is completely unacceptable that the Russian government is able to act with impunity and immunity at the UN Security Council as it provides more arms for the massacres, genocide, and crimes against humanity being committed by the Assad regime.
The United Nations Security Council is supposed to be a staunch advocate for bringing peace to all people of the world. However, Russia has been allowed to reign over its proceedings, acting in complete impunity and immunity as it provides more arms for the massacres and crimes against humanity being committed by the Al-Assad regime. This is completely unacceptable to any citizen of humanity with a conscience.
We demand that given the Security Council’s inaction, the United Nations Human Rights Council should urgently convene a meeting to reconsider the membership of countries such as Russia, China and Syria, which are plummeting the very essence of human rights into the Dark Ages. It is horrifying to us, citizens of the human race, that human rights are being represented by countries that blatantly disregard them. We appeal for your urgent attention in summoning an emergency meeting of countries who will stand for the human race and change the course of history in a positive manner, saving thousands of lives in the process.

Sincerely,

      Putin claims that he supports the Syrian people but he believe only few wants Assad to step down and those are represented by the armed opposition I don't blame him only 178 bothered to sign this petition which takes 5 seconds so how would he hear our voices.

    2. 2 Russian military ships loaded with troops and weapons to land at Syria

      Petition Organizer

      Russia and China had repeatedly stopped any resolution at the UN Council that might put an end to Assad brutality and killings of civilians and children in Syria.Russians politicians insisted that they are against any intervention in Syria . However they don't consider shipping weapons and troops to aid Assad in the crack down against his own people an intervention. We Syrian are sick of Russia supporting our killers and preventing help and aid from reaching the civilian whom need the support.

      You are damaging the UN's ability to stop the violence and help to bring peace. I know you wish to remain true to your allies, but they have become amoral and the price is too much. Many innocent people are dying in an attempt to bring change - please do not turn away from them and support their oppressive regime. Instead, help to protect these brave and courageous people and bring them the peace and change they desire. Thank you.

      I sign this petition without reservation because just as U.S. govt. support for Israeli savagery against Palestinians should be confronted, so too should Russian support for the Syrian dictatorship's savagery be stopped.

      There should never, ever be ANY double standards when it comes to confronting evil, from any regime, or transnational group, or individual that tramples over human rights.

      ENOUGH!

      The leaders of the world are doing very little to stop the inhumanity in Syria. We cannot simply stand by and watch.
