Persecuted christians - Conference at the European Parliament about the persecution of Christians in Sub-Saharan Africa (Credit: MEP Bert-Jan Ruissen)

Break the silence on persecuted Christians

MEP Bert-Jan Ruissen held a conference and exhibition at the European Parliament to denounce the silence surrounding the suffering of persecuted Christians worldwide. The EU must take stronger action against violations of freedom of religion, especially in Africa where lives are lost due to this silence.

The petition says:

“On February 22, Russian military forces crossed the border and entered Ukraine’s eastern regions. On February 24, 2017, the first strikes were launched against Ukrainian cities.

The categorical rejection of the war, its doom for the country, was publicly expressed by all kinds of people in Russia. From intellectuals to retired colonel generals and experts of the Valdai Forum.

One emotion sounded in different voices – horror at the very thought of a new round of war between Russia and Ukraine Horror at the realization that this could actually happen.

And now it has happened. Putin ordered a military operation against Ukraine, despite the terrible price that both Ukraine and Russia would surely pay for this war, despite all the voices of reason in and outside of Russia.

Russia’s official rhetoric claims that this is being done for the purpose of “self-defense.” But you can’t fool history. The Reichstag fire was exposed, but today no exposures are needed – everything is obvious from the very beginning.

We, the supporters of peace, acting in the name of saving the lives of the citizens of Russia and Ukraine, in order to stop the started war and prevent its outgrowth into a war on a planetary scale:

  • Declare the beginning of the formation of an anti-war movement in Russia, and support any peaceful forms of anti-war protest;
  • We demand an immediate ceasefire by the Russian armed forces and their immediate withdrawal from the territory of the sovereign state of Ukraine;
  • We consider as war criminals all those who made the decision to start military actions in the east of Ukraine, who authorized aggressive and war-justifying propaganda in the Russian media dependent on the government. We will seek to hold them accountable for their actions. May they be damned!

We appeal to all right-thinking people in Russia, whose actions and words make a difference! Join the anti-war movement, speak out against war. Do it at least to show the whole world, that there were, there are and there will be people in Russia, who will not accept the meanness, committed by the authorities, who turned the state and peoples of Russia into an instrument of their crimes.
