We call our brothers and sisters abroad and the other chuches to go for boycott. Personally and individually, and then convincing the churches, and the churches to convince their governments...

Responsibility to Protect - Responsibility to set demands (R2P)
1. A State has a responsibility to protect its population from
genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing
2. If the State is unable to protect its population on its own, the
international community has a responsibility to assist the state by
building its capacity. This can mean building early-warning
capabilities, mediating conflicts between political parties,
strengthening the security sector, mobilizing standby forces, and
many other actions.
3. If a State is manifestly failing to protect its citizens from
mass atrocities and peaceful measures are not working, the
international community has the responsibility to intervene at first
diplomatically, then more coercively, and as a last resort, with
military force" (R2P)
