This purpose of this cause is to educate readers as to the the murderous Syrian regime and put pressure on the Chinese government to reverse its veto of the UN condemnation of Syria's actions.
The Assad regime has killed over 7000 people since March of 2011. Every country on the UN Security Council, with the exception of China and Russia, supports the Syrian people's struggle for freedom and democracy. In the short time that it took for the UN to count the votes, the Assad death squads killed another 200 more people in the city of Homs.
Each year, people from every country around the planet leave billions of dollars/euros/yuan when they travel to China. China needs to know that these tourists have strong global ethical convictions and that they consider these convictions when planning their travels. As well, China also needs to know that these same people care from whom they buy - and if "Made in China" equates to allowing death squads kill more Syrians, then global citizens can put their strong global ethical convictions into play. Please connect to this link, sign the petition, and then re-post to your wall for others to share. Also, please send out this link to all of your contacts in your address book. Syria needs your help - are you willing to give it? http://www.thepetitionsite.com/10/stop-the-murder-in-syria/
There are millions of compassionate, concerned and democratic-loving people both in and outside of China. Let's make China hear us all! Let China know that we do not support the Syrian Assad regime nor can we support the governments that turn a blind eye to the atrocities being committed in the name of the Assad regime!
