Help Alleviate Suffering in Libya
Washington, DC | www.adc.org | March 14, 2011 -- The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) extends its deepest sympathies to the people of Libya in light of the recent tragedies arising from the pro-Democracy movement in that nation.
On February 15, 2011, thousands of Libyans took to the streets across Libya demanding their basic and fundamental universal human rights. Over the past few weeks, the violence has escalated – resulting in innumerable deaths and the estimated displacement of 180,000 persons, as reported by the news media.
ADC is extremely concerned about the well being of the Libyan people, and all those who are refugees or displaced, and encourages all ADC members and friends to donate toward the alleviation of humanitarian suffering.
