Maya Geiger started this petition to President Donald J. Trump

President Trump and the entire United States government are uneducated about the issue that persists on the Syrian Turkish border. After the president of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan stated that if the United States removed sanctions from Turkey, they would ceasefire and attacks of the Kurds would halt. However, the Turkish government is continuing attacks on the Kurds. 20 civilians have died and another 20 have been injured by attacks from Turkey after the cease-fire promise.  President Trump and the entire United States government have not done anything about the continuing attacks of the Kurds by the Turkish government and it is deeply unethical and ignorant to ignore our allies. The Kurds were a major force in the defeat of the Islamic State with the United States. They fought along with our soldiers and suffered many more casualties than did our soldiers. We are now abandoning these faithful war partners by allowing the killings of them to continue. Turkey has always seen the Kurdish people in Syria as a threat to them even when they were opposed to the Islamic State. Knowing this, President Trump still led soldiers out of Syria in an attempt to guide them to safety and instead sparked a mass genocide of the Kurdish people that continues even after Turkey has stated they would cease-fire. This issue needs to be addressed and fixed and the United States must help our allies to put an end to this mass genocide we are all witness to.
