Block All Child Pornography From Facebook

    1. Petition by

      Men Against Prostitution And Trafficking - MENAPAT

Facebook is a household name for millions of people around the world who use it to make friends, share photos, and discuss common interests. But increasingly, those people include predators who use Facebook to share illicit images and videos of children.

Please tell President Obama to call Facebook's CEO, Mark Zuckerberg and demand action. We must have 25,000 signatures on the White House Petition by January 24th.

Over two years ago, Men Against Prostitution and Trafficking (MENAPAT) began to uncover the massive amount of this illegal and abusive content on Facebook. In just one day, MENAPAT discovered over 1,400 illicit images of children on the Social Network.

 

This tragic content is found on Facebook through closed "groups," fake profiles, "special events," "interests," and "likes" created by predators who then trade and share extremely illicit images of abused children.

 

Despite the severity and prevalence of these illicit images on Facebook, the company has not implemented effective policies or procedures to block these crimes from taking place. Their current procedure is to allow these horrible images of children to be posted all day, every day. Then they rely on Facebook users - some only children themselves - to report the abuse, not to law enforcement, but to Facebook.

 

No matter what Facebook might be doing to address this dangerous situation, it is clearly not enough. In fact, speaking about illicit images of children on Facebook, the company's "Safety Team Leader" recently told MENAPAT, "there's plenty of it."

 

We will not allow Facebook to hide the fact that there is "plenty" of this often deadly content on their site. The only acceptable amount is zero.

 

It's time Facebook took the protection of children on their site seriously enough to share our zero tolerance policy. We demand they take responsibility for ending these crimes from ever taking place.

 

If change is going  to happen, it's up to us. Our opinion is that Facebook cannot be trusted with the safety of our children.

Do you want to help us change the world? Right now, you can take real action and make a difference.

Please tell President Obama to call Facebook's CEO, Mark Zuckerberg and demand action. We must have 25,000 signatures on the White House Petition by January 24th.

Thank you,
Men Against Prostitution And Trafficking

      Children need to be protected at all costs. Facebook should never allow this content on it's website.

      Facebook should be more responsible for policing certain metarial within their domain. Child pornagraphic meterial is prohibited by Law, therefore, Face book should cooperate with the laws meant to promote public safety.
