Stop the killing in Libya: International Physicians

MARCH 23, 2011: MAPW's global network - the International Physicians for Prevention of Nuclear War - have called for a solution to be sought in Libya through peaceful means.

IPPNWi state: "IPPNWi calls on all parties for an immediate cease fire in Libya. Having established a no fly zone, we call on the governments responsible for the international forces for an immediate halt in all military actions, and on the Libyan government and the Libyan rebels to end the fighting and to seek a peaceful conflict solution, if necessary facilitated by UN negotiators."

"With continued hostilities and foreign military intervention, a humanitarian crisis is emerging in Libya. IPPNWi demands that health care and medical facilities at all times must be accessible for all parties and that health care workers must be allowed to perform their duties according to humanitarian and ethical principles."
