感谢您的参与

 

您的参与将成为世界领导人的有力提醒,提醒他们冲突中的平民需要尊重和保护。

在这个世界人道主义日,我们与陷入武装冲突的数以百万计的人们团结在一起。平民 #NotATarget。

签署这个请愿,世界领导人就能听到您的声音。我们没有时间可以浪费,原因如下。

当您阅读此文章时,战争荆棘中的人们仍在受苦难的折磨。城区的平民每天都挣扎着寻找食物、水以及安全避难所,而空袭和炮弹却在不断地摧毁其家园,使他们受到更大的伤害、歧视和折磨。儿童也被招募进军营并参战,其学校被征用为军事场所。女人生活在恐惧中,被敌人性侵,而后受到其村民的羞辱。尽管人道主义工作人员在提供支援,医疗工作者在为伤者和病患进行治疗,但是他们也是直接攻击目标并被视为威胁,并且受到非法阻止,不能顺利为这些急需救助的人民提供帮助和护理。

下列许多要求已经在长期公认的国际战争规则中明确提出,但是战争参与方都经常违反这些规则。我们需要您的帮助,这样我们才能表达我们深深的沮丧和关心并要求所有领导人采取行动以最大的努力来保护平民免受战争伤害。

让我们一起要求领导人采取以下行动:

• 保护城市和乡村的平民以及其家园和所依赖的基本服务。

• 承诺保护儿童,停止招募儿童入伍及参战并通过签署“安全学校声明”来保护儿童受教育的权利。


• 阻止冲突中所有形式的性暴力,对犯罪分子进行严厉制裁,并为幸存者提供机会和支持,使他们能够得到恢复并重新加入社会。

• 尊重难民在其他国家寻求避难的权利;支持联合国秘书长的工作以在 2030 年之前将内部迁移人数降低至一半。

• 确保支援工作人员能够安全且不受阻碍地为需要救助的群众提供人道主义援助。

• 允许医护人员为伤者和病患提供治疗和护理,无论这些人员身份如何,并结束对医护人员、救护车和医院的攻击。


与联合国秘书长共同努力并致力于在世界各地推行人道主义,我们要求世界领导人在其能力范围内利用所有外交、政治和经济影响力来确保冲突所有参与方都尊重并保护平民。


为了我们都将在其中生存的世界的未来,我们请求您签下您的名字来支持这项事业。

平民

who we are
advocating for

These are the groups of civilians who need urgent humanitarian assistance and protection, as highlighted in the United Nations Secretary-General Report on the Protection of Civilians in Armed Conflict. Learn more about their plight, as well as the specific action we’re demanding of leaders.

   

This World Humanitarian Day we bring attention to the millions of civilians affected by armed conflict every day. People in cities and towns struggle to find food, water, and safe shelter, while fighting drives millions from their homes. Children are recruited and used to fight, and their schools are destroyed. Women are sexually abused by fighters, then shamed by their villages. As humanitarian workers deliver aid, and medical workers treat the wounded and sick, they are directly targeted, treated as threats, and prevented from bringing relief and care to those in desperate need.

The humanitarian concerns described here can’t possibly capture the lives of all those affected by conflict around the world. From people with disabilities, to the elderly, migrants, and journalists, all civilians caught in conflict need to be protected. Please sign the petition demanding world leaders do everything in their power to protect all civilians in conflict.

   

What Is

World Humanitarian Day?

World Humanitarian Day is held every year on 19 August to pay tribute to aid workers who have risked and lost their lives in humanitarian service. The Day was designated by the General Assembly in 2008 to coincide with the date of the 2003 bombing of the United Nations headquarters in Baghdad, Iraq. Each year, World Humanitarian Day focuses on a theme, bringing together stakeholders from across the humanitarian system to advocate for survival, well-being, and dignity of people affected by crises, and for the safety and security of aid workers.

Safety and Security of Humanitarian Workers

Around the world, humanitarian aid workers operate in dangerous and difficult environments.

Over the past 20 years, 4,132 aid workers have been attacked. In 2016, 91 aid workers were killed, 88 were injured and 73 were kidnapped in the line of duty.1 The majority of these attacks took place in five countries: South Sudan, Afghanistan, Syria, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Somalia.

Attacks against aid workers are deplorable and represent clear violations of international humanitarian law. In addition to endangering aid workers, these attacks threaten humanitarian operations and the lives of millions of people who rely on humanitarian assistance for their survival.

Canal Hotel Bombing in Baghdad, Iraq, 19 August 2003

On 19 August 2003, a bomb attack on the Canal Hotel in Baghdad killed 22 humanitarian aid workers, including the UN Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Iraq, Sergio Vieira de Mello. Five years later, the General Assembly adopted a resolution designating 19 August as World Humanitarian Day.

The Canal Hotel bombing was a massive loss for the United Nations and the humanitarian community, and marked a turning point for humanitarian operations in Iraq and worldwide.
