SUBJECT: Lifting Sanctions on Syria
Hello, my name is [Your Name] and I am a resident of [City/State]. I am contacting you today as your constituent to demand that you do your part in order to put an end to the violent and murderous sanctions implemented against Syria, including the recent Caesar Act.
Regardless of political views on the conflict, sanctions are only hurting the Syrian people and do little to hurt the government itself. Over 80% of Syrians now live below the poverty line and the currency rate has been devalued by over 50% due to the implementation of the Caesar Act. Over 9.3 million Syrians are considered food insecure and they have little access to humanitarian aid due to the U.S. sanctions making it extremely difficult to obtain permits for humanitarian exemptions.
An independent expert within the United Nations, Mr. Idriss Jazairy, even confirmed the brutality of the sanctions on Syria by stating that “restrictive measures are only making the situation worse” and “it [sanctions] is not allowing humanitarian actors to access the humanitarian exemptions.” I, along with other constituents and Americans, refuse to allow the use of my taxpayer dollars in funding the starvation of innocent people abroad. I urge you to introduce a congressional bill to lift sanctions or take another path of action to avoid causing further harm to the Syrian people. I will certainly be taking your response into consideration during the next election.
