Free Ahed Tamimi

My name is Nasri Akil from Toronto, Canada. I started this campaign to support" Ahed Tamimi", her mother "Mariam", her cousin "Nur" and the other kids detained by the evil hands of the Zionists of the fake state of Israel. In a desperate hope to get enough signature to put pressure on decision makers to do something about the constant twisted detention of Palestinian kids. In turn this will expose the evil of the zionists and pressure the international community. I would like to mention here that this petition has nothing to do with race or religion or ethnicity. It's pure right against wrong. Zionism is not Judaism. Judaism is a religion not a race. Many Jews are not Zionists. Most Zionists are not Jews. Many Zionists hate Jews. Opposition to Israel is NOT anti-Semitism. Ahed Tamimi, 16, was arrested ( kidnapped actually ) by Israeli forces in the middle of the night. Since she was a young child, she has been active in weekly demonstrations against Israel’s theft of her family’s land in occupied Nabi Saleh. But as Tamimi stands against Israeli occupation, she underscores: whenever a people face oppression, we must show solidarity. Israeli soldiers shot Ahed Tamimi's relative in the head, leaving the teenage boy in a coma, and then invaded her family home. She demanded that the occupying Israeli soldiers leave her property immediately, shouting "don't touch me" and "leave!" Now she's in Israeli military detention, where 75% of Palestinian children report assault. Ahed is a child, and like thousands of Palestinian children she could be humiliated and abused if we don't get her out fast. She has become another child statistic of the countless other children detained illegally in Israel. Her court date is December 25th, 2017. She was taken into question at the Moscobiyeh prison, notorious for it's dungeon cell, torture tactics fully utilized on children, and extensive harassment. She was put in isolation, left in an icy cell, without proper food. In fives days she was moved three times. Why? To exhaust and break her.  When her mother arrived to be there with her, she too was arrested.  We demand that Ahed and all Palestinian children are released from Israeli prisons now.  The international community must put an end to the ill-treatment and detention of Palestinian children. Enough is enough.  Ahed Tamimi represent all the innocent kids in the Isareli detention and represent the Palestinians struggle against the illegal occupation of Palestine. Since 1967, Palestinian children in the Occupied Palestinian Territory have been living under Israeli military law and prosecuted in military courts. Israeli military law, which fails to ensure and denies basic and fundamental rights, is applied to the whole Palestinian population. Israel is the only country in the world that automatically prosecutes children in military courts that lack basic and fundamental fair trial guarantees. Since 2000, at least 8,000 Palestinian children have been arrested and prosecuted in an Israeli military detention system notorious for the systematic ill-treatment and torture of Palestinian children. Around 500-700 Palestinian children are arrested, detained and prosecuted in the Israeli military court system each year. The majority of Palestinian child detainees are charged with throwing stones, and three out of four experience physical violence during arrest, transfer or interrogation. Unlike Israeli children living in illegal settlements in the West Bank, Palestinian children are not accompanied by a parent and are generally interrogated without the benefit of legal advice, or being informed of their right. They are overwhelmingly accused of throwing stones, an offense that can lead to a potential maximum sentence of 10 to 20 years depending on a child’s age. AHED TAMIMI will go to trial on Christmas Day for slapping an Israeli soldier, illegally trespassing on her property, the day after her 15-year-old cousin was shot in the face. In December 2011, Mustafa Tamimi was killed during a protest in the village when an Israeli soldier shot him in the face with a tear gas canister. One year later, Israeli soldiers shot and killed Rashadi Tamimi in the village. One wonders why the "slap" is the Crime? I decided to do something about it and start with what I can. So that's why I am here asking you to help me help Ahed, her family and all the other kids. I also started a fund raising campaign on "GoFundMe" hoping to raise enough money to hire as many legal advisors to support Ahed and the others legaly in the court and get some justice. I mean enough is enough...I can't sleep I can't eat and these kids are experiencing all of that twist. Someone must do something. This is not right. This is not humanity. We cannot make this acceptable by doing nothing.  I earnestly ask that at the very least, we make some noise in support of Ahed Tamimi and the other children that are held prisoners with no charge, no defense, all in violation of international laws.   She is one, but we are many. It takes a united front to add pressure, to induce accountability and hopefully give freedom to the oppressed, weak and innocent.  To Ahed and all the children in Israeli jails: We stand by your side, and are holding you in our hearts. We will not give up until you are free. You are not alone. As a wise man ounce said: "Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible" Sign. Support. Make Noise. Add Pressure. Be Human.  what if Ahed was your daughter, sister or just a friend? What would you do?

Dukung Tuan Guru Muhammad Zainul Majdi Maju di PilPres 2019

HARAPAN UNTUK MASA DEPAN INDONESIA YANG LEBIH BAIK Saatnya Tuan Guru yang Memimpin Negeri Tuan Guru dengan Masa Depan yang Panjang Inilah gubernur yang berani mengkritik pers. Secara terbuka. Di puncak acara Hari Pers Nasional (HPN) pula. Di depan hampir semua tokoh pers se-Indonesia. Pun, di depan Presiden Jokowi segala. Di Lombok. Tanggal 9 Februari lalu. Inilah gubernur yang kalau mengkritik tidak membuat sasarannya terluka. Bahkan tertawa-tawa. Saking mengenanya. Dan lucunya. ”Yang akan saya ceritakan ini tidak terjadi di Indonesia,” kata sang gubernur. ”Ini di Mesir.” Sang gubernur memang pernah bertahun-tahun bersekolah di Mesir. Di universitas paling hebat di sana: Al Azhar. Bukan hanya paling hebat, tapi juga salah satu yang tertua di dunia. Dari Al Azhar pula, sang gubernur meraih gelar doktor. Untuk ilmu yang sangat sulit: tafsir Alquran. Inilah satu-satunya kepala pemerintahan di Indonesia yang hafal Alquran. Dengan artinya, dengan maknanya, dan dengan tafsirnya. Mesir memang mirip dengan Indonesia. Di bidang politik. Dan persnya. Pernah lama diperintah secara otoriter. Lalu, terjadi reformasi. Bedanya: Demokrasi di Indonesia mengarah ke berhasil. Di Mesir masih sulit ditafsirkan. ”Di zaman otoriter dulu,” ujar sang gubernur di depan peserta puncak peringatan Hari Pers Nasional itu, ”tidak ada orang yang percaya berita koran.” Gubernur sepertinya ingin mengingatkan berita koran di Indonesia pada zaman Presiden Soeharto. Sama. Tidak bisa dipercaya. Semua berita harus sesuai dengan kehendak penguasa. ”Satu-satunya berita yang masih bisa dipercaya hanyalah berita yang dimuat di halaman 10,” ujar sang gubernur. Di halaman 10 itulah, kata dia, dimuat iklan dukacita. Gerrrrrrr. Semua hadirin tertawa. Termasuk Presiden Jokowi. Tepuk tangan pun membahana. Bagaimana setelah reformasi, ketika pers menjadi terlalu bebas? ”Masyarakat Mesir malah lebih tidak percaya,” katanya. ”Semua berita memihak,” tambahnya. ”Halaman 10 pun tidak lagi dipercaya,” guraunya. Meski hadirin terbahak lebih lebar, sang gubernur masih perlu klarifikasi. ”Ini bukan di Indonesia lho, ini di Mesir,” katanya. Hadirin pun kian terpingkal. Semua mafhum. Ini bukan di Mesir. Ini di Indonesia. Juga. Saya mengenal banyak gubernur yang amat santun. Semua gubernur di Papua termasuk yang sangat santun. Yang dulu maupun sekarang. Tapi, gubernur yang baru mengkritik pers itu luar biasa santun. Itulah gubernur Nusa Tenggara Barat: Tuan Guru Dr KH Zainul Majdi. Lebih akrab disebut Tuan Guru Bajang. Gelar Tuan Guru di depan namanya mencerminkan bahwa dirinya bukan orang biasa. Dia ulama besar. Tokoh agama paling terhormat di Lombok. Sejak dari kakeknya. Sang kakek punya nama selangit. Termasuk langit Arab: Tuan Guru Zainuddin Abdul Majid. Di Makkah, sang kakek dihormati sebagai ulama besar. Buku-bukunya terbit dalam bahasa Arab. Banyak sekali. Di Mesir. Juga di Lebanon. Jadi pegangan bagi orang yang belajar agama di Makkah. Sang kakek adalah pendiri organisasi keagamaan terbesar di Lombok: Nahdlatul Wathan (NW). Setengah penduduk Lombok adalah warga NW. Di Lombok, tidak ada NU. NU-nya ya NW ini. Kini sang cuculah yang menjadi pimpinan puncak NW. Dengan ribuan madrasah di bawahnya. Maka, pada zaman demokrasi ini, dengan mudah Tuan Guru Bajang terpilih menjadi anggota DPR. Semula dari Partai Bulan Bintang. Lalu dari Partai Demokrat. Dengan mudah pula dia terpilih menjadi gubernur NTB. Dan terpilih lagi. Untuk periode kedua sekarang ini. Selama karirnya itu, Tuan Guru Bajang memiliki track record yang komplet. Ulama sekaligus umara. Ahli agama, intelektual, legislator, birokrat, dan sosok santun. Tutur bahasanya terstruktur. Pidatonya selalu berisi. Jalan pikirannya runtut. Kelebihan lain: masih muda, 43 tahun. Ganteng. Berkulit jernih. Wajah berseri. Murah senyum. Masa depannya masih panjang. Pemahamannya pada rakyat bawah nyaris sempurna. ”Bapak Presiden,” katanya di forum tersebut, ”saya mendengar pemerintah melalui Bulog akan membeli jagung impor 300.000 ton dengan harga Rp 3.000 per kg.” Lalu, ini inti pemikirannya: Kalau saja pemerintah mau membeli jagung hasil petani NTB dengan harga Rp 3.000 per kg, alangkah sejahtera petani NTB. Selama ini, harga jagung petani di pusat produksi jagung Dompu, Sumbawa, NTB, hanya Rp 2.000 sampai Rp 2.500 per kg. Sang gubernur kelihatannya menguasai ilmu mantiq. Pelajaran penting waktu saya bersekolah di madrasah dulu. Pemahamannya akan pentingnya pariwisata juga tidak kalah. ”Lombok ini memiliki apa yang dimiliki Bali, tapi Bali tidak memiliki apa yang dimiliki Lombok,” moto barunya. Memang segala adat Bali dipraktikkan oleh masyarakat Hindu yang tinggal di Lombok Barat. Demikian juga pemahamannya tentang vitalnya infrastruktur. Dia membangun by pass di Lombok. Juga di Sumbawa. Dia rencanakan pula by pass baru jalur selatan. Kini sang gubernur lagi merancang berdirinya kota baru. Kota internasional. Di Lombok Utara. Sebagai gubernur, Tuan Guru Bajang sangat mampu. Dan modern. Sebagai ulama, Tuan Guru Bajang sulit diungguli. Inikah sejarah baru? Lahirnya ulama dengan pemahaman Indonesia yang seutuhnya? Dahlan Iskan

Pak @SBYudhoyono Pak @Zul_Hasan : Batalkan Izin Penebangan Hutan Kepulauan Aru

Tiba-tiba saya khawatir Kepulauan Aru. 500 ribu hektar hutan leluhur saya di Maluku mau dibabat massal! Total luasnya hanya 643 ribu. Berarti hampir habis! Kabarnya, gabungan 28 perusahaan kantongi izin Menteri Kehutanan @Zul_Hasan, terutama untuk pembabatan itu. Hingga sekarang, kekayaan dan keindahannya terjaga. Kawan saya anak Maluku, Jacky Manuputty belum lama menelusuri perairan besar kepulauan ini, melewati pesisir desa-desa adat dengan rumah berbentuk panggung di atas air. Kaya! Tapi kenapa ya, tahun 2010, BPS mencatat pulau Maluku sebagai propinsi termiskin ke-3 di Indonesia. Lalu, apa yang tersisa dari Maluku, jika kekayaan tersisa berupa bentangan hutan lebat, tempat bermainnya unggas Cendrawasih ini dibabat massal? Hampir semua penduduk lokal dari 117 desa menolak perkebunan ini. Bung Jacky bilang masyarakat Kepulauan Aru butuh banyak dukungan dari kita. Oya, jarak Kepulauan Aru dari Ambon (1,5 jam penerbangan) persulit akses pantauan ke sana. Tapi beberapa teman bersedia ke Aru. Akhir bulan ini, Aliansi Masyarakat Adat Nusantara (AMAN) Maluku dan KOMNAS HAM Maluku akan ke sana. Kunjungan ini turut memperkuat konsolidasi masyarakat Aru dalam gerakan penolakan mereka. Teman-teman netizen sudah menolak, termasuk #SaveAru yang dimobilisasi oleh "Maluku Bloggers" di media sosial. Saya sendiri ingin ikutan menjadi corong perjuangan mereka dengan memulai petisi di laman Nah, tandatangani dan sebar ya petisi #SaveAru! Saya ingin coba kumpulkan 10 ribu dukungan teman-teman sebangsa, juga anak Maluku! Salam perubahan untuk Indonesia di tanah Maluku manise!

Gubernur Zaini, Tepati Janji, Tegakkan Hukum. Hentikan semua kegiatan berbasis lahan di Rawa Tripa dan cabut izin perusahaan yang membakar Rawa Tripa!

“Kalau tidak ada perubahan, hutan gambut Tripa dan Orangutannya akan punah pada tahun 2015-2016.”  Begitu kata Dr. Ian Singleton, Direktur Konservasi Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Program.Hutan rawa gambut Tripa di Kawasan Ekosistem Leuser Aceh, di ambang kehancuran. Tripa merupakan kawasan dengan kepadatan populasi orangutan tertinggi di Sumatra. Populasi Orangutan tinggal 200 ekor (dari seribu), dan sisa lahan tinggal 11 ribu hektar (dari 62 ribu). Padahal berada dalam kawasan yang dilindungi. Pasalnya, beberapa perusahaan kelapa sawit seperti PT. Kalista Alam, dengan izin yang tidak sah, melanggar hukum dengan memperluas lahan melalui pembakaran hutan. Pada Agustus 2011, Gubernur Irwandi (pada masa itu) memberikan izin yang bertentangan dengan moratorium presiden mengenai perluasan lahan dan Kawasan Ekosistem Leuser. Maret kemarin selagi persidangan berjalan, pembakaran besar-besaran terjadi di Tripa. Ribuan hektar konsesi PT. Kallista Alam dan PT. Surya Panen Subur 2 terbakar. Pelanggaran pidana dan administratif terjadi di hadapan peradilan. Tripa menjadi perhatian dunia. Komitmen presiden untuk melindungi hutan dipertanyakan. Namun masih ada kesempatan menyelamatkan salah satu hutan dan satwa terpenting di Indonesia. Kementrian lingkungan hidup telah memulai menyidik kasus ini. Presiden SBY telah mengirim tim untuk menyelesaikan kasus ini, UKP4 dan Satgas REDD+ telah memberikan rekomendasi kepada Gubernur untuk mencabut izin-izin bermasalah tersebut. Menteri kehutanan sendiri telah berkunjung dan meminta seluruh rawa tripa untuk dilindungi dan direstorasi. Sekarang, penyelamatan Rawa Tripa ada di tangan Gubernur Zaini. Beliau memiliki wewenang tersebut. Bahkan, beliau pun pernah mengatakan akan mencabut izin 2 perusahaan itu, karena telah melanggar hukum (sumber The Globe Journal). Namun sampai sekarang, belum ada hasilnya.Mari kita ingatkan dan dukung beliau untuk menepati janjinya dengan memerintahkan penghentian semua operasi berbasis lahan di Rawa tripa, dan mencabut izin perusahaan kelapa sawit bermasalah di Tripa.Mari kita perjuangkan terus hutan dan satwa Aceh, sebelum dirampas perusahaan.

Jokowi dan DPR, Putuskan Hubungan Diplomatik dg Myanmar dan Keluarkan Myanmar dari ASEAN

Dalam sebuah video terlihat rumah-rumah suku Rohingya dihancurkan dan dibakar oleh militer Myanmar. Mayat-mayat suku Rohingya terlihat bermunculan dari dalam lumpur dan abu. Pemandangan yang sangat kejam dan mengerikan sebagai gambaran genosida militer Myanmar terhadap suku Rohingya di utara Rakhine. Human Rights Watch (HRW) menyatakan, ratusan rumah suku Rohingya di desa-desa dihancurkan hingga luluh lantak oleh militer Myanmar. Ini menimbulkan kekerasan yang terus-menerus antara militer Myanmar dengan suku Rohingya. Kekejaman militer Myanmar sudah di luar batas kemanusiaan. Pemerintah Bangladesh mengatakan, puluhan suku Myanmar banyak yang menyeberang ke Bangladesh dari perbatasan Myanmar. Mereka berusaha melarikan diri dari militer Myanmar. Maka sebagai wujud dari Pembukaan UUD 1945, Indonesia harus terlibat aktif membebaskan Muslim Rohingya atas Penjajahan dan kezaliman yang dilakukan Junta Militer dan Pemerintahan Myanmar yang berkuasa.  Untuk Hal tersebut, Joko Widodo Harus memanggil Duta Besar Myanmar dan Meminta penjelasan dari mereka, serta menutup Kedutaan Besar Myanmar Hingga batas waktu mereka untuk tidak lagi terlibat menjajah dan menzalimi Muslim Rohingya. Serta, Mengajak seluruh Peserta Negara ASEAN, untuk mengeluarkan Myanmar dari Keanggotaan. Pembuat Petisi, Rizqi Awal. CEO Sahabat Padjadjaran, founder dakwah islam, 085722224399.

China: Stop Religious Persecution against the Uyghurs!

Torchlight Uyghur Group ( This Petition Is Also Available In The Following Languages: Turkish (Turkçe),French (Français), Uyghur (ئۇيغۇرچە), Uyghur Latinche, Uyghur Kirilche, Arabic (عربى) , Chinese (Simplified),Japanese (日本語),Russian(Pусский) May 9th, 2018  According to one European researcher, at this very moment, “at least several hundred thousand, and possibly just over one million (Uyghurs), are or have been interned in political re-education facilities” in East Turkestan (known as Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in China). That means one out of every Uyghur family has likely been taken forcibly into one of these camps. The crackdown has focused on young Uyghur men, so if you’re a male and between the age of 20 and 40, the odds are you will find yourself locked up in a camp.   ( In these Nazi style concentration camps, Uyghurs are being forced to denounce their religious belief and to eat pork. In addition to these Uyghurs held in the concentration camps, more than half a million Uyghurs were imprisoned since April 2017 for keeping religious contents on their phones or reading religious books .  The Chinese authorities are convinced that the religious belief of the Uyghurs is one of the main obstacles to assimilate them, and thus now openly launched anti-religion campaign against the Uyghur people in East Turkestan, reaching the highest level ever seen since the Cultural Revolution. Fasting in Ramadan is a serious crime and not having alcoholic drinks is a sign of extremism for the Uyghurs now in East Turkestan. The campaign targets all Uyghur population and it actually is part of China’s ethnic cleansing policy against the Uyghurs. The Chinese government has frequently been condemned by the Uyghur people and global rights groups for committing genocide against the Uyghurs and crimes against humanity.  Now in East Turkestan: •    More than one million Uyghurs are languishing in China’s Nazi style concentration camps and forced to give up their religious belief. •    Uyghurs are no longer allowed to say some Arabic words such as “ Allah” and “Assalamu alaykum”. Using these kinds of words has become part of the Uyghur customs for many centuries. •    Most mosques are being demolished or turned into entertainment facilities. •    Traditional customs like naming children and marriage ceremony with Islamic way are prohibited. •    Some Uyghurs girls are forced to marry Chinese men by the arrangement of the Chinese authorities. •     Chinese men are installed in Uyghur homes whose male family members have been detained.   •    Islamic clothing and beards are forbidden as a sign of extremism. •    The usage of “Halal” labels for food production has been criminalized.  •    The Uyghur government officials are being forced to sign for cremation instead of Islamic burial. •    Islamic books including Holy Qur’an and praying mats were burned. Praying and Fasting are banned. •    Chinese national flag and the portraits of Xi Jinping are placed in mosques. •    Most Uyghurs in diaspora have not been able to communicate with their family members in East Turkestan since mid 2016.  A large number of Uyghurs who studied abroad or visited some Islamic countries such as Egypt were imprisoned in 2017 without any trial. The Chinese government requested all Uyghur students studying abroad, especially those in Turkey and Egypt, to come back to China immediately. The authorities arrested returned students in airports and their whereabouts are still unclear. The Chinese government arrested family members of the students who did not return. Also, the Chinese government carried out an operation for hunting thousands of Uyghur students in Egypt at the end of 2017 and many students fled to other countries for saving their lives. Thousands of religious scholars and influential public figures have been arrested and some of them, such Muhammed Salih, a prominent Uyghur religious scholar,  is known to have died during the interrogation. (  “The Chinese government’s restrictions on Uyghur Muslims are an attempt to assimilate a besieged religious and ethnic minority,” said United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) Chairman Daniel Mark. “By installing Communist Party cadres in Uighur homes and detaining countless innocent Uyghurs in extrajudicial ‘re-education camps’, the Chinese government has created a culture of fear, suspicion, and mistrust throughout Xinjiang. Indeed, the government’s actions are disrupting entire communities as they try to live their lives and practice their faith in peace.” (  “What is happening?” questions Jay Nordlinger, An American journalist and senior editor of National Review, “Up to a million Uyghurs have been rounded up, thrown into a gulag — an archipelago of ‘reeducation’ camps — with no due process whatsoever. Many have simply been ‘disappeared’.”  He also says that “there has not been mass killing yet, but many Uyghurs have been tortured to death. Lots of people fear that this is a pre-genocidal situation — that the mass incarceration is a prelude to mass murder, and to organ harvesting, in particular. (This is one of the evil specialties of the Chinese Communist Party.) The entire Uyghur population, incarcerated or not, has been DNA-sampled.” (  The Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO) conference that took place at the US Congress on  February 26, 2018 highlighted the Chinese government’s draconian restrictions on Uyghurs cultural and religious freedoms. (  Since April 2017, Uyghurs accused of harboring “extremist” and “politically incorrect” views have been detained in political re-education camps throughout East Turkestan. Authorities have relied on a list circulated in early 2017 of “75 Signs of Religious Extremism” to detain Uyghurs amid a string of harsh policies attacking their legitimate rights and freedoms enacted since Communist Party secretary Chen Quanguo was appointed to run the region in August 2016. (  By analyzing information “from 73 government procurement and construction bids valued at around RMB 680 million (approximately $108 million),” Adrian Zenz, a researcher at the European School of Culture and Theology, conclude in a recent paper that the bids revealed a massive plan to build these massive concentration camps, focusing on Uyghur-majority areas of East Turkestan.  Life inside these camps is horrifying, according to rare accounts of those who were able to leave and speak to the media. One such account came from a Kazakh national who was swept up into one camp, and then returned to Kazakhstan. Daily brainwashing sessions were held “about the dangers of Islam”. “Do you obey Chinese law or your God?” instructors asked. “Do you understand why religion is dangerous?” Other prisoners were forced to praise Xi Jinping’s greatness instead of God. Before every meal, inmates were forced to chant: “Thank the Party! Thank the Motherland! Thank President Xi!” Daily Mail reported shocking details of the methods revealed by former inmates in these camps that were employed by Chinese agencies to make Muslims in East Turkestan align with communist ideals and give up their Islamic beliefs. According to these former inmates, Muslims in the camps are made to eat pork and drink alcohol among other punishments when they refuse to follow orders from the camp authorities. Upto a million Muslims, mainly from East Turkestan, are reportedly detained in such camps in China. (  Zenz pointed out that “China’s pacification drive in Xinjiang is, more than likely, the country’s most intense campaign of coercive social re-engineering since the end of the Cultural Revolution. The state’s ‘war on terror’ is arguably more and more a euphemism for forced ethnic assimilation.”  (    A US commission on China had last month described the program as ‘the largest mass incarceration of a minority population in the world today’. (  The unforgettable human tragedies of Nazi concentration camps and Soviet gulags taught enough lessons for humanity to vow to prevent similar tragedies from happening again. And yet, under the watchful eyes of the world, the Chinese government has deprived more than a million Uyghurs of their basic rights by placing them in these heinous camps. (  We, the Uyghurs, at the moment are in our fight against the Chinese government’s atrocities, and cannot fight this battle for our survival alone.  We need the support of all the justice-loving people in the world.  If tens of thousands of people from around the world sign our petition, it may be possible that the United Nations will make a commitment and will act to stop the tragedy that the Uyghur people are facing today.

Please spread the word so that people around the world could learn about such a great tragedy that is happening in East Turkestan. Please sign and share this petition.

Pindahkan Hewan di KBS ke tempat yang layak

Hari ini, kesekian kalinya saya membuat petisi. Biasanya, saya penuh emosi, dan rasa marah. Biasanya, saya membantu sesama manusia yang dilecehkan, yang bercerita ke saya apa yang dialaminya. Saya merasakan cerita dan pengalaman mereka. Tadi malam, saya menangis. Menangis karena melihat mata harimau wanita bernama "Melani," dan juga hewan-hewan baik di Kebun Binatang Surabaya yang tampak lelah, lapar, sakit, dan desperate karena tidak bisa bercerita , berteriak, atau berbicara meminta makan. (sebagian foto bisa dilihat disini). Mereka kelaparan, tapi tidak bisa bicara. Seperti banyak temannya, mereka menunggu hari untuk dibiarkan mati. Setahun lalu, saya coba masuk dan menawarkan bantuan makanan dan sumbangan ke KEBUN BINATANG SURABAYA . Selama setahun, saya melihat berita penyimpangan dan foto dan cerita di segala jenis media di Indonesia. Dan sama seperti cerita saya, semua bantuan terpental keluar. Konon, bukan cuma hewan, tapi bahkan pegawai pun banyak tidak bergaji. Hari ini, gue mohon dukungan sahabat yang masih peduli dan masih bisa merasakan tangis saat lo ngeliat semua foto-foto ini. Setiap tanda-tangan lo di halaman ini, mengantarkan satu email ke Gubernur Jawa Timur dan Kepala Kebun Binatang Surabaya untuk : 1 , Mengeluarkan surat untuk membiarkan bantuan umum masuk untuk memberikan makanan pada hewan yang ada disana. 2 . Mengeluarkan surat untuk membiarkan bantuan umum masuk berupa dokter untuk memeriksa hewan yang ada di sana. 3 . Mempertanggungjawabkan atau MENUTUP dan MEMINDAHKAN hewan yang ada di sana ke tempat/kebun binatang yang lebih layak, dengan pengawasan PUBLIK . Harus berapa hari kita menunggu tandatangan ini mencapai ribuan agar didengarkan? Bisakah kita membuat ini terwujud, sebelum ada yang mati lagi? Love Melanie
