Mr. Bernard Gbayee Goah –
President, Operation We Care for Liberia

Operation We Care for Liberia condemns the use of force on peaceful protestors by the Libyan military under the leadership of a notoriously unpredictable man, Moammar Gadhafi.

We disagrees with President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf’s lack of commentary on the current human rights violations in Libya. We are mostly concerned about the lives of innocent Liberians living in Libya at this time. We ask the government of Liberia to evacuate its citizens from Libya to Liberia.

Information reaching us has revealed that there are mercenaries from other African countries fighting alone side Gadhafi’s forces. We call on all Liberians to abstain from traveling to Libya due to the security situation in that country. We ask that the Liberian government discourage its citizens from fighting alongside Libya’s military forces. Doing so would jeopardize the little peace Liberia is experiencing. Aiding Gadhafi in any way would not be in the best interest of Liberia and West Africa.

In order to bring about credibility to the Africa Union, AU member countries, including Liberia must demand Gadhafi’s resignation! Gadhafi’s sanctioned attacks on peaceful protestors have also compromised Libya’s membership status in the AU. These actions are unacceptable, undemocratic, inexcusable, and not in the interest of peace in Africa. We believe that any delay in Gadhafi stepping down will result in an increase of violence and death.

We have learned that 700 or more protestors were killed by Moammar Gadhafi’s military forces in Libya. The voice of the people of Libya must be respected and we believe it is the responsibility of the government of Libya to yield to its citizen’s demands. We ask the United States, the United Kingdom, and France to hold responsible, the current Libyan regime for vehemently refusing to respect the rights of innocent civilians.

Lastly, Given Liberia’s relationship with Libya, President Ellen Sirleaf of Liberia must publically condemn the current violence in Libya. President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf must publically state that the government of Libya is responsible for the death of its own citizens, and Liberia will not support the current regime and its actions. President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf’s government must act swiftly and safely evacuate all Liberians from Libya.
