"A massacre that has lasted for two years must be stopped. An international intervention to liberate Aleppo from the siege is necessary. It takes responsibility on the part of the governments involved: from Turkey, sided with the rebels, to Russia, authoritative at Assad. To save Aleppo is worth more than a victory of one side or the other on the field! they must establish humanitarian corridors and supplies for civilians. and then the end of the fighting must be addressed to the bitter end. A UN peacekeeping force would be appropriate. Of course, it takes time to be realized and cooperation from Damascus. Meanwhile, the people of Aleppo die. Peace must be imposed in the name of those that suffer. A sort of " Aleppo, an open city". Read all

With these words, Andrea Riccardi has appealed to the international community for the salvation of the city of Aleppo, in Syria, where bombing continues, with a huge number of casualties. Thousands of voices have joined his voice, from all over the world.
