Calls for German government to support action against Gaddafi
Genocide Alert is an active ICRtoP member based in Koln, Germany, who has launched an email campaign directed at the German government (who has a seat on the Security Council) calling for action in Libya, modeled on its Sudan Alarm campaign.
In light of the recent events in Libya, Genocide Alert published a press release on 24 February requesting the German government to advocate for sanctions as well as a no-fly zone over Libya within the Security Council and the European Union. The press release can be found here (in German).
Two days later, Genocide Alert published an article on Libya and the international community's responsibility to protect civilians from mass atrocities committed by Muammar Gaddafi and his forces. The article can be found here (in German).
Genocide Alert further established a Libya email campaign to call on Chancellor Merkel and foreign minister Guido Westerwelle as well other relevant politicians in Germany to take more decisive action on Libya.
In the beginning of March 2011, Genocide Alert conducted an interview with Prof. Dr. Claus Kreß, eminent expert on international criminal law and member of the German delegations to the Assembly of States Parties of the ICC since 2003, on the situation in Libya and on the role of the ICC in general.
