Syrian Government Must Uphold Principles of Universal Human Rights

Washington, DC | | June 17, 2011 - The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) strongly believes that the Syrian government must uphold the principles of Universal Human Rights.

As activists continue to make their voices heard in Syria, ADC reiterates its support for the basic human rights of the Syrian people to organize, voice their dissent, and peacefully gather to project their political will. ADC condemns the use of violence against those exercising their rights, or by any participant, and encourages all those involved to exercise restraint.

ADC believes that appropriate steps must be taken to ensure that a fair democratic system will be implemented, which respects the free will and human rights of all Syrians. ADC urges all participants to ensure that the transition to reform is a peaceful one.
