If we want to give people a chance for justice and the world a chance for peace, we need to unite. The alternative is grim – it leaves hundreds of thousands unprotected in the face of widespread, systematic crimes, exposed to needless suffering and abuses of basic human rights. It allows for continued violence, conflict and war instead of peace.

The ICC will do its part to deter would-be crimes and to ensure access to justice, but global access is only possible with global support. That’s why we need humanity to unite.

Together, we can build a more just world.
