We raise our voice to oppose the use of U.S- imposed sanctions, embargoes and blockades.These actions are collective punishment against civilian populations.
Sanctions are war, comparable to weapons of mass destruction. They impact whole countries, resulting in chronic shortages, economic dislocation and chaotic hyperinflation. Those who impose sanctions aim to induce artificial famines, disease, poverty, and despair among the most vulnerable. In every country, the poorest and the weakest – infants, children, the chronically ill and the elderly — suffer the worst impact of sanctions.
By imposing sanctions, the U.S. is commiting a crime against humanity as defined under the terms of the Nuremberg Principles. Economic sanctions clearly violate the United Nations’ Charter, the Geneva Convention and other fundamental institutions and documents of contemporary international law.
Let’s expand efforts to oppose ALL forms of economic sanctions and blockades. Add your name below to get involved:
