Lettera Aperta al Governo degli Stati Uniti e alle Nazioni Unite

Signor Donald J. Trump
Presidente degli Stati Uniti

Signor António Guterres
Segretario Generale delle Nazioni Unite

La diffusione globale di COVID-19 ha messo in luce la pratica illegale e immorale di imporre misure coercitive unilaterali (sanzioni economiche) da parte del governo degli Stati Uniti contro più di trenta nazioni. Il governo degli Stati Uniti sta ora approfittando della disattenzione pubblica causata dalla pandemia per intensificare le sue azioni militari contro le nazioni colpite.

La guerra economica contro quelle nazioni aveva già provocato inimmaginabili sofferenze ai popoli delle nazioni colpite, anche prima della pandemia di COVID-19.

Con la devastante pandemia globale, i Paesi interessati – in particolare Venezuela, Cuba, Iran, Siria e Zimbabwe – stanno incontrando difficoltà proibitive per proteggere e salvare la vita dei propri cittadini di fronte all’attuale emergenza globale. Queste sanzioni costituiscono crimini contro l’umanità.

Come cittadino del mondo preoccupato, invito il governo degli Stati Uniti a:

1. Porre immediatamente fine alle sue sanzioni economiche contro tutti i Paesi interessati.

2. Sbloccare le attività finanziarie e i conti bancari dei Paesi interessati in modo che possano acquistare e ricevere cibo, medicine e attrezzature mediche e forniture necessarie per combattere la pandemia.

3. Fermare tutte le minacce e le azioni militari contro i Paesi presi di mira, così come a far rientrare le navi da guerra della Marina degli Stati Uniti spedite in Venezuela con il falso pretesto della “Guerra alla Droga”.

4. Ritirare l’accusa infondata di “traffico di droga” contro il Presidente Nicolás Maduro e altri funzionari del governo del Venezuela.

5. Rispettare la richiesta del Segretario Generale delle Nazioni Unite, António Guterres, di un cessate il fuoco globale.

Chiedo al Segretario Generale delle Nazioni Unite e ai principali organi delle Nazioni Unite di invocare gli articoli della Carta delle Nazioni Unite per esigere il rispetto del diritto internazionale da parte del governo degli Stati Uniti.

Chiedo inoltre al Consiglio di Sicurezza delle Nazioni Unite di revocare tutte le sanzioni imposte dalle Nazioni Unite contro tali Paesi.

 

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.
