Petition: Stop the torture of doctors in Syria!
The Syrian physician Sakher Hallak lived well in Syria. But when he signed a petition calling for doctors to treat gunshot protesters, his destiny changed. He was selected to die and to frighten other doctors.
Following the death of Sakher Hallak, who was tortured to death by the Syrian regime because he signed a petition, urging that doctors should treat gunshot protestors – I today start a petition against the Syrian regime.
The Syrian regime must immediately stop the torture and violence against the Syrian people.
Doctors all over the world must have the right to treat all people and do what they are trained to do: save lives. Whether it’s a politician or an ordinary citizen who has been gunshot when protesting against the dictatorial regime.
