Open Letter to the Security Council on the Situation in Syria

This Open Letter from the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect urges the UN Security Council to take action to halt the crimes being committed against population in Syria. The government has already demonstrated its unwillingness to uphold its responsibility to protect populations. The basic premise of the responsibility to protect is that the international community must act if a government abdicates its responsibility and perpetrates atrocities, so now is the time for the Security Council to respond.
