A letter to Mrs. Hillary Clinton about the degradation of the state of human rights in Syria sign now


Dear Mrs. Hillary Clinton,

We write to you to voice our sincere concern for the degradation of the state of human rights in Syria. This deterioration of freedom and human rights is the result of systematic abuses by the Syrian regime which are illegal and un-constitutional in Syria, and concurrently, in violation of the International Declaration of Human Rights and other international treaties that have been signed by the Syrian regime. Syria has witnessed, particularly during the last six months, a dangerous deterioration of human rights to a level that has not been seen since the early 1980s. On the ground, we are noticing a steady increase in crackdowns on basic human freedoms and those who defend those freedoms.
The latest example of this progressive deterioration is the detention of the head of the Syrian human rights organization Sawasiyah and human rights lawyer Muhannad al-Hasany. Al-Hasany is known for his courageous defense of Syrian prisoners of consciencethose individuals who have committed the crime merely of speaking their mind and voicing their opposition to Syrias totalitarian regime. His reports on the many cases of human rights abuse in Syria are frequently used as a reference by international human rights organizations such as Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, and Freedom House, all of whom have since called for his immediate release. Al-Hasanys organization Sawasiyah, is considered one of the most important in-country monitors and defenders of human rights, and his detention is therefore a serious setback for those who depend on Sawasiyah for protection and a voice.
Other examples of Syrias ongoing disregard for international human rights abound. This past July 4th, on a day which for Americans symbolizes the triumph of this countrys struggle for freedom and justice, Human Rights Watch issued a reminder that one year following the massacre of an untold number of inmates at Sednaya Prisonmany of them presumably prisoners of conscience by Syrian authorities, no one has been brought to justice. Syria has been allowed to bury these victims in ignominy alongside the regimes own crimes against its people.

Madame Secretary, we have been hopeful since your confirmation as Secretary of State that you will stand in defense of human rights, particularly in the developing world. Your most recent comments during your visit to Africa insisting on political and legal reforms in countries like Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of the Congo were extremely encouraging. Yet, with regard to Syria, we have not seen any substantial progress as of yet.
The policy of political openness toward the Syrian regime was welcomed by Syrian activists because we hoped that openness would promote legal and political reform in the country and would go hand in hand with improvement in the conditions of human rights. However, arbitrary detention and imprisonment is still a way of life for all Syrian citizens. In fact, the most recent detention of Muhannad al-Hasany took place just three days after your special envoy, Mr. George Mitchell, left Syria.
While we understand the difficulties of negotiating a middle road in foreign policy, as human rights activists, we worry that the ideals which are fundamental to all peoples, and are particularly dear to the American people, will be sacrificed on the altar of American foreign policy. The people of the Middle East are watching carefully to see what steps you will take to make true the positive support President Obama pledged to human rights activists in his Cairo speech. We request that during this period of rapprochement with the Syrian regime, you demand Syria respects internationally mandated human rights and that you indicate to the regime openness is conditioned with the total and unconditional respect of human rights, the cancellation of the state of emergency and the disbanding of the Special and Military tribunals. We ask that you personally intervene to compel the release of Muhannad al-Hasany, and all other political prisoners and prisoners of conscience, as a first step by the regime to express its good intentions and seriousness toward political reform. The Syrian regime has a long history of broken promises, and we sincerely hope that their most recent gestures do not fall flat as they did in 2000 when Secretary Albright congratulated Bashar al-Asads seizure of power.

We appreciate your attention Madam Secretary, and we remain at your service for any additional information you may request.
