Arrest Syria's torturers

To all members of the UN Security Council and the Arab League:

We call on you to stop the deadly terror in Syria by immediately referring cases against the regime to the International Criminal Court. Both the UN Human Rights Council and a new Avaaz report have found evidence that Assad's senior officials and security forces have committed crimes against humanity. It is time to stop this murderous brutality and protect the Syrian people, who are risking everything to reclaim their rights and their dignity.

This is hard to report, but Avaaz’s own members are being tortured by Syria’s monstrous regime. Manhal* reports that he was held in a secret prison where they pulled out his fingernails and toenails and electrocuted his body parts. "I have seen death, and I’ve been tortured nearly to death,” he's told us. But if we act now, we can make Manhal's sacrifice the last straw that turns the whole world against the Assad regime.

The Arab League’s observers have failed to stop the brutal crack down, but pressure on Assad is mounting. Avaaz has just released a terrifying report revealing the scale of Syria’s detention facilities, including what they did to Manhal. If we build a massive global outcry now, we can force key governments to confront the horrors in this report and accelerate the end of Assad.

Sign the petition on the right, and when we reach 500,000 signatures we’ll deliver it along with Avaaz’s report to the Arab League and the United Nations Security Council, demanding they refer Assad to the International Criminal Court to be tried for crimes against humanity.

* “Manhal’s” name has been changed to protect his identity.
