Statement from the LCCS
We congratulate the Arab League for suspending its observer mission in Syria and making the decision to improve its performance in its national and humanitarian duty to the Syrian people. The Arab League will have fulfilled its duty to the Syrian people in creating an overarching Arab and international committee that is more professional, objective, and neutral, and that can protect the lives of Syrian civilians. We encourage the Arab League and United Nations Security Council members to raise the issue of the severity of the regime’s crimes and to do all they can to prevent further bloodshed, which would ultimately cause Syria to be a failed state and would represent a source of even more misery for the Syrian people. We in the Local Coordinating Committees in Syria welcome any efforts to re-energize the peaceful demonstrators and help the Syrians to control both their present-day and future circumstances as we transition to a united, free people in a united land. We therefore appeal to brotherly and friendly nations, international organizations, and non-governmental organizations around the world to expedite development and relief programs to help Syrians in overcoming the daily oppression and injustice under which they live. We also call on all Syrian political and activist entities to coordinate their efforts under a consolidated framework to ensure that relief supplies and other assistance are delivered immediately to those who need them.
