Peace Rally (SPR) believes that the current attitudes of animosity,
incompatibility, suspicion and hostility by Somali warlords
towards Djibouti peace plan for Somalia reflect their economic
advantages in Somali conflict such as illegally printing Somali
money and using public infrastructure for their personal interests.
warlords' attitudes towards Somali peace process also stem
from the fact that they do not want to see their unbridled
passion of riches and power to be constrained by a Somali
state with the capability to make rules, collect revenue and
enforce the rule of law.
peace plan aims at the holding of a national reconciliation
conference and the establishment of a Somali transitional
government with an acting president, Prime Minister and a
parliament. The peace plan reinforces the position of Somali
civil society in peace establishment.
peace plan for Somalia is aimed to promote national consensus,
deepen and give substances to the concepts of consent, participation,
legitimacy and accountability to the Somali people.
the collapse of Somali state, Somali warlords have wilfully
caused mass killings, serious suffering and inhuman treatment
to unarmed civilian populations, destruction of social and
physical fabric in Somalia, and the use of the Somali public
and private properties for their personal interests.
the SPR strongly urges the international community to hold
the warlords back and force them to co-operatively participate
in bringing the Somali peace process to fruition.

parties concerned in peace establishment, in order to build
up the foundations that are necessary for sustainable peace
also urges the UN Security Council, the United Nations, IGAD,
Arab League, EU and Djibouti government to encourage Somali
peace participants at the peace conference in Djibouti to

level and the expected demand of international community for
peace, stability, security and prosperity in Somalia.
