From UK Column News Extra: Lift the sanctions on Syria!

While all the focus is on the plight of Ukrainians facing a winter without energy, everyone seems to have forgotten that Syria has been living under western Sanctions for eleven years.

Vanessa Beeley explains the impact of sanctions on the people of Syria and appeals for everyone to assist in raising awareness, and having them lifted.

Please see Vanessa's Substack article for more details and the full text of the statement by Alena Douhan, UN Special Rapporteur on unilateral coercive measures and human rights, urging sanctioning states to lift unilateral sanctions against Syria and warning that they are perpetuating and exacerbating the destruction and trauma suffered by the Syrian people since 2011.
