I am writing to you today as a VERY concerned citizen of the UK to find out what you and the UK Government are doing about the atrocities being enacted in Aleppo today and over the last 5 years. 

It’s all very well the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon voicing alarm “over reports of atrocities against a large number of civilians”. https://www.facebook.com/Channel4News/ But what is being done about it?

I can’t believe that we as a civilised country are seriously only debating this NOW in Parliament. Why have we not gone in there with the aim of protecting and getting these people out. Yes, I realise there are political issues etc etc but these are innocent people, women and children…being slaughtered on the streets. And NOW Parliament is debating the issue????

What are you doing to petition the Government to take action? What have you done over the past 5 years to try and stop this horror in Syria?

Why have we as a civilised country not taken more stringent action than a few slaps on the wrist for Assad and Putin….as for Russia, you may as well just forget about them because America’s President-elect has handed his country to them on a platter.

I saw their military fleet from the top of the cliffs in Hastings. Why were we simply escorting them through our waters when we knew what they were going to be doing once they reach the other side?

There is so much horror going on in Syria, it’s a wonder anyone in power who should be doing something about this manages to sleep at night.

We simply have to provide serious humanitarian aid to the people of Aleppo and get them out….if there is anyone left by the time you folks have finished debating this in Parliament.

I hope to hear from you asap.
