ACT NOW!

It is with deep sorrow and concern that we witness the injustice and tragedy befalling the Palestinian refugees in Syria. Displaced from their homeland, our courageous people continue to face the horrors of violence, siege, famine, and indiscriminate targeting. We believe it is our duty to support them, as we believe it is our duty to support all innocent civilians who fall victim to slaughter, displacement, destruction of homes and lack of medical care and basic necessities. We know that many communities in Syria are currently suffering from these horrors, and we sympathize and stand in solidarity with all of them. However, as an organization that is dedicated to supporting Palestinian refugees and their inalienable right of return to their homes and lands of origin in Palestine, we are well aware of our responsibility in drawing attention to their specific fate, as it is inextricably tied in with our common history of brutal expulsion in the shatat (exile).

ACTION:

We ask all people of conscience to contact the Syrian Embassy and the Office of the National Coalition of Syrian Revolution and Opposition Forces in Washington DC to demand that the siege of Yarmouk camp end and that all fighters leave the camp with their weapons immediately. Let our people live!

Please contact the Syrian Embassy in Washington DC at

Embassy of Syria 2215 Wyoming Ave. N.W., Washington, D.C. 20008 USA info@syrembassy.net Tel (202) 232-6316 Fax: (202) 232-4357

Please write to National Coalition of Syrian Revolution and Opposition Forces using the online form posted at this page http://www.etilaf.us/contact_us

We also call on all members and supporters to hold protests and demonstrations to draw attention to the desperate plight of our people in the Yarmouk camp and elsewhere in Syria and to demand an end to the siege of Yarmouk camp and that all fighters leave the camp with their weapons immediately. Let our people live!

Al-Awda, the Palestine Right to Return Coalition stands by its brothers and sisters in Yarmouk camp, squarely and firmly. Forever we will stand in solidarity with our Palestinian refugee communities, wherever they live in the world. Until Return!

Thank you for your support. We depend on it.
