No excuses, no delays. Ceasefire Now!

Here are some suggestions for what you can say in your message:
  • I call on you to take immediate action to end the bloodshed in Syria by bringing both sides to agreement on a ceasefire NOW.
  • Every day the US and Russia stall, more are killed and raped, more flee the country. The Syrian people need help now.
  • Friday's meeting between US and Russian leaders is the time to set a date for peace talks.

Women in Syria are being forced to stand in front of tanks and act as human shields before they’re stripped and raped by soldiers. This is the depravity humanity has sunk to in Syria as the war there drags on. But for the first time in months, we may have a chance this week to begin to turn things around.

On Friday, the US and Russian foreign secretaries are meeting in Washington about potentially convening peace talks. But every time they’ve done that in the past, they’ve argued about side issues and stalled -- stalling that the Syrian women and children being raped and slaughtered simply can’t afford.

We’re already planning powerful giant advertisements just outside their meeting to demand peace talks and a ceasefire now. If we back that with a flood of emails, we can force them to finally end all the delays. We have two days -- send an urgent message to Secretary of State Kerry and Foreign Minister Lavrov now.
