Carta Aberta ao Governo dos Estados Unidos e à Organização das Nações Unidas

O Sr. Donald J. Trump
Presidente dos Estados Unidos

O Sr. António Guterres
Secretário geral das Nações Unidas

O surto global da COVID-19 expôs a prática ilegal e imoral de imposição de medidas coercivas unilaterais (sanções econômicas) pelo governo dos Estados Unidos contra mais de trinta nações. O governo dos Estados Unidos está agora usando a distração do público causada pela pandemia para intensificar suas ações militares contra as nações que tem como alvo.

A Guerra econômica contra essas nações já tem resultado no sofrimento inimaginável do povo nas nações alvo, mesmo antes da pandemia de COVID-19.

Com a devastação trazida pela pandemia global, os países alvo — especialmente a Venezuela, Cuba, Irã, Síria e Zimbábue — enfrentam dificuldades limitantes da sua capacidade de proteger e salvar as vidas de seus cidadãos diante da corrente emergência global. Essas sanções constituem crimes contra a humanidade.

Como consciente cidadão do mundo, insto o governo dos Estados Unidos a:

1. Eliminar suas sanções econômicas contra todos os países alvo imediatamente.

2. Descongelar os ativos financeiros e contas bancárias dos países alvo para que estes possam comprar e receber a alimentação, os remédios, o equipamento e os suprimentos médicos necessários para combater a pandemia.

3. Encerrar todas as ameaças e ações militares contra os países alvo, inclusive retirando os navios de guerra da Marinha estadunidense enviados à Venezuela sob o falso pretexto da “Guerra contra as Drogas”.

4. Retirar a acusação sem fundamento de “Tráfico de Drogas” apresentada contra o Presidente Nicolás Maduro e outras autoridades do governo da Venezuela.

5. Atender ao apelo feito pelo Secretário-Geral das Nações Unidas, António Guterres, por um cessar-fogo global.

Insto o Secretário-Geral das Nações Unidas e os órgãos de liderança da ONU a invocar os artigos da Carta das Nações Unidas para exigir respeito pelo direito internacional por parte do governo dos Estados Unidos.

Também apelo ao Conselho de Segurança da ONU para que igualmente levante todas as sanções impostas pela ONU contra aqueles países.

Open Letter to the Government of the United States and the United Nations

Open Letter to the Government of the United States and the United Nations

Mr. Donald J. Trump
President of the United States

Mr. António Guterres
Secretary General of the United Nations

The global spread of COVID-19 has exposed the illegal and immoral practice of imposing unilateral coercive measures (economic sanctions) by the United States government against more than thirty nations. The government of the United States is now using the public distraction caused by the pandemic to intensify its military actions against the targeted nations.

The economic war against those nations had already resulted in unimaginable suffering of the people in the targeted nations even before the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the devastation of the global pandemic, the targeted countries — especially Venezuela, Cuba, Iran, Syria and Zimbabwe — are finding it prohibitively difficult to protect and save the lives of their citizens in the face of the ongoing global emergency. These sanctions constitute crimes against humanity.

As a concerned citizen of the world, I call upon the United States government to:

1. End its economic sanctions against all targeted countries immediately.

2. Unfreeze the financial assets and bank accounts of the targeted countries so that they can purchase and receive the necessary food, medicine and medical equipment and supplies needed to combat the pandemic.

3. Stop all military threats and actions against the targeted countries, including the removal of U.S. Navy warships dispatched to Venezuela under the false pretense of “War on Drugs.”

4. Drop the baseless charge of “Drug Trafficking” against the President Nicolás Maduro and other officials of the government of Venezuela.

5. Respect the call issued by the Secretary General of the United Nations, António Guterres, for a global ceasefire.

I call upon the Secretary General of the United Nations and the leading bodies of the United Nations to invoke the articles of the UN Charter to demand respect for international law by the government of the United States.

I also call upon the UN Security Council to lift all UN-imposed sanctions against the targeted countries as well.
