Ethiopian withdrawal from Somalia sign now

Thursday, May 08, 2008




Petition



To: Prime Minister of the United Kingdom
Mr. Gordon Brown,


Dear Sir,


Somalia has been wracked by violence, since the shaky transitional federal government invited Ethiopian troops in 2006, ousting the Union of Islamic Courts that had held most of the country, and brought back peace, after 15 years of civil war.

The Ethiopian troops are fighting in Mogadishu, using excessive force in heavily populated areas, causing very high causalities among the civilians. Over 1.5 million civilians has been displaced from homes in the capital Mogadishu alone during the year 2007 and live now in the outskirt of the town, without shelter, food, water, and medical care.
Thousands civilians has been killed, and the most of the casualties were caused by the Ethiopians using heavy artillery, tank shells and rocket launchers in heavily populated areas.
Hospitals, schools, markets, homes, mosques, radio and TV stations have been destroyed. The situation has never been as bad as it is today, and Mogadishu hasnt experienced such a large scale destruction and death in the last 15 years of civil war. This caused the worst humanitarian crises ever seen Africa.

To end the suffering of the civilians and this senseless bloodshed and to ease the situation in and around the Somali capital and also taking into account the historical issues between Ethiopia and Somalia, we the undersigned suggest first to stop fighting and secondly to get the Ethiopian troops out of the capital and other towns, and after that to negotiate a face saving way of withdrawal.
We ask You to use Your power and influence to stop this dreadful war against the civilians.


Ahmed Warsame Abtidon
