Petition for New Zealand Government Support for Aleppo
To the Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Minister of Immigration,
We are asking you to support the people of Aleppo by:
1. Ensuring the safe evacuation for people trapped in Aleppo.
2. Committing to provide aid for those that cannot be evacuated from Aleppo
3. Give assistance to NGOs that are currently working in Aleppo
4. Increase the refugee quota in New Zealand
Why is this important?
Human Rights Groups have estimated that up to 100,000 civilians have been killed in the ongoing conflict in Syria.
Yesterday’s deal to evacuate the remaining civilians has collapsed. Shelling and airstrikes have resumed and the streets are littered with bodies.
According to alarming reports from a doctor in the city, many children, possibly more than 100, unaccompanied or separated from their families, are trapped in a building, under heavy attack in east Aleppo
The UN have a plan in place for evacuating the 100,000 civilians trapped in the city. Their lives can be saved. This plan just needs world leaders to implement it.
New Zealanders want to help those who are living through this horrible atrocity and we are asking you, our elected representatives, to listen to our request and to pledge your support to the people of Syria.
