On the eve of the 17th anniversary of the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish center in Buenos Aires, the regional affiliate of the World Jewish Congress has launched the online petition 'Sign for Justice' to bring the masterminds of the terror attack to trial. The petition is to be delivered to Argentina's president, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. "We call upon the Argentinean government and judicial system to continue the investigation to bring those responsible to justice and end impunity," the petition reads.
The global campaign, whose website www.signforjustice.org features a video with stark images of the aftermath of the bombing, has been launched in eight different languages, including English, Russian and Chinese.
“The masterminds of the attack have not been brought to justice yet, but only Iran is to blame since they refuse to cooperate with the Argentinean justice,” Claudio Epelman, executive director of the Latin American Jewish Congress, a regional affiliate of the World Jewish Congress, told the news agency JTA.
The petition can be signed here.
