Global Amnesty Watch, GAW, has condemned Wednesday’s siege on the US Congress, describing it as “despicable” and an “assault on democracy.”
In a statement signed by its Director, John Tom Lever, on Thursday, the group said President Donald Trump showed a lack of respect for democratic ideals by instigating and urging his supporters to assault the Capitol.
According to Lever, the incident at the Congress affirms the retrogression of democracy in the US under Trump’s watch.
The GAW, therefore, noted that it is time for retrospection by the incoming administration led by President-elect, Joe Biden.
He said the new government must improve the country’s internal mechanism to guard against a repeat of the assault in its democracy as carried out by Trump and his supporters.
The Global Amnesty Watch, however, advised the incumbent to seek forgiveness from the American people for bringing democracy in the nation to disrepute.
It added that the actions of Trump remain despicable and must be condemned by all lovers of democracy all over the world.
“The Global Amnesty Watch views the events in the United States of America that culminated in the attack on the United States Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump as a most despicable desecration of democracy in the United States of America.
“By all indications, President Donald Trump has proved a lack of respect for democratic ideals by instigating and urging his supporters to assault democracy in the United States of America in its over 200 year’s existence.
“The Global Amnesty Watch is of the considered opinion that the attempt to subvert the will of the American people by President Donald Trump must be condemned in its entirety,” Lever said.
