We’ve launched a new website! –> solutionforsyria.org
Jubilee Campaign has launched a new website dedicated solely to our Syria efforts. As you may know, for the past few years we have been advocating for a solution to the Syrian crisis – a solution that comes from the people and is representative of the people.
So far, peace talks and other initiatives for a solution have left out many of Syria’s ethnic and religious minorities, only including the actors engaged in violence. However, many of Syria’s minorities have been instrumental in protecting vulnerable areas from ISIS, as well as maintaining peace in areas previously consumed by fighting. We find it puzzling that the actors who have remained peaceful are being left out of discussions regarding a solution.
We are advocating for a democratic, pluralistic solution for Syria. In northeast Syria, a group of Kurds, Arabs, Assyrians, Chaldeans, Arameans, Turkmen, Armenians, and Chechens of various religions have established the Self Administration Areas of North East Syria. This region is self-governed, and functions on a social contract “based upon mutual and peaceful coexistence and understanding between all strands of society.” As we advocate for a democratic, pluralistic solution for Syria, we look to the Self Administration Areas as a prime example of how this solution can be achieved.
Our new website will provide information on the solution we are proposing and advocating for, current news on Syria, as well as opportunities for you to be involved. Be on the lookout tomorrow for when the website goes live! We will be sending an email with the link, as well as posting it to our social media accounts.
As always, please remember to pray for the crisis to end in Syria. And please pray that our advocacy initiatives will be effective and well-received!
