\"We received yesterday at the Rome conference permission from the world ... to continue the operation,\" Israeli Justice Minister Haim Ramon, 27 July 2006
We, the people of the world hereby call upon Prime Minister Tony Blair and the British Government to demand an immediate ceasefire to halt the cruel suffering and systematic destruction of Lebanon. We despair at the continuing loss of innocent civilian life, both Israeli and Lebanese and displacement of thousands of people from their homes. We, the people of the world do not give our permission to the continuation and intensification of warfare in Lebanon.
We strongly urge the British Government to not isolate itself from the mood and sentiment of the international community towards this conflict. The UN Secretary General, Kofi Annan has called for an immediate cessation of hostilities, access to humanitarian aid and a peaceful and diplomatic solution to this conflict to prevent further conflagration of this war.
We, the people of the world have witnessed much death, destruction and wish not to be complicit through our silence. We ask you to let there be no more blood spilt, no more tears shed, no more cries of mothers, fathers and children and let there be no more rubble of homes and livelihoods. If ever a time, a people, a nation and a world needed moral leadership, it is needed now and we demand it from the British government.
We are the Peace Warriors,
We are people who won\'t stand by and watch injustice being condoned by our government in our names.
