Help Us Save the University of Timbuktu in Mali, West Africa (and Its Historic Artifacts) by Signing This Petition
Around the 12th century, the University of Timbuktu in Mali had an attendance of 25,000 students in a city which had a population of 100,000 people. The students came from all corners of the African continent in search of excellence in knowledge and trade.
Today, Timbuktu is under deadly and damaging attack!
We ask the United Nations Security Council to issue an emergency resolution authorizing the African Union (AU) and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS)-and each member state –to take all necessary steps to respond to the humanitarian crisis in Mali and to preserve the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Timbuktu and Gao.
