Tell Obama: Recognize Libyan Transitional National Council (TNC)!


For more background information on the National Transistional Council visit: http://www.nydopeace.org

It’s time for the U.S. to take a clear stand and officially recognize the Libyan National Transitional Council as the only legitimate representative of the Libyan people.  This will provide the Libyan pro-democracy movement with much-needed moral support, help further isolate Gadaffi’s regime and establish a clear path for negotiating effective strategies to end the slaughter without overstepping the will of the Libyan people.

Secretary of State Clinton is traveling to the region to meet with and vet some of the leaders of the Libyan National Transitional Council over the next few days. She has said:

We know there are people we want to be associated with; we know there are people we don’t want to be associated with...

The Libyan people have been unwavering and continue to lay down their lives for one objective – to free themselves of Gadaffi's tyranny.

To that end, many Libyans have aligned themselves with the National Transitional Council, as has the Arab League and France. It’s time the U.S. did the same.  Please sign the petition urging President Obama to officially recognize the National Transitional Council. Libyans are dying for it.

 

 

 

 

Letter to
President of the United States
As an ordinary citizen I am distraught by the unspeakable violence and military attacks perpetrated against the citizens of Libya. Whole towns are effectively held hostage. Unarmed women, children, elderly people, doctors and ambulance drivers are being massacred by the Gadaffi regime.

It’s time for America to take a clear stand and officially recognize the Libyan National Transitional Council as the only legitimate representative of the Libyan people. This will provide the Libyan pro-democracy movement with desperately needed moral support, help further isolate Gadaffi’s regime and establish a clear path for negotiating effective strategies to end the slaughter without overstepping the will of the Libyan people.

The Libyan people have been unwavering and continue to lay down their lives for one objective – to free themselves of Gadaffi's tyranny. To that end, many Libyans have aligned themselves with the National Transitional Council, as has the Arab League and France. It’s time America do the same. I urge the U.S. to officially recognize the Libyan National Council immediately as the only legitimate representative of the Libyan people. Their bravery and determination deserves support.

Thank you,
