Slovakia: Indian Attacked/Charged With Murder. UPDATE: "Not Guilty" but Verdict Appealed

An Indian man is attacked on October 7th, 2017 by 3 white men, fights back in self-defense only after the threat to his life is escalated by kicks and punches, then is charged with First Degree Murder while his attackers go free. This happened in Bratislava, Slovakia next to the U.S. and German Embassies. Racially motivated attacks are not rare, and in this case, even though the Slovak judge and prosecution have the video footage and witness testimonies, the victim is still the one charged. The Slovak people are shielded from the truth.  The video shows one story <http://yt.vu/c/UC4EyFTDhl9BSH6JQVIjGiaA > but the news sells a different story. By supporting this petition, you will not only give hope to this man, but you will give hope to his family that he will finally be freed and come home. There is also hope that the Slovak courts will not continue to be swayed by racist public opinion and tabloids but lean toward true justice for victims of Hate Crimes. There is also hope that the attackers will be held accountable for the Hate Crime they committed against this man. I humbly urge you to support and share this petition to show this man and his family that they are not alone...that there is hope.   UPDATE: OCTOBER 15, 2018
Mr. Timothy received the verdict "Not Guilty" today and was sent home finally after 1 year and 1 week in custody. This is a major victory and we thank the Lord.  The Prosecutor has appealed the decision so the case will go to the higher courts in Slovakia.  Please keep sharing and supporting this petition as we prepare for the next trial.   Justice For TimothyContact: justice.for.tim.sk@gmail.comSupport: https://chn.ge/2EYKHA4Instagram: @justicefortimFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/JusticeForTim/YouTube: http://yt.vu/c/UC4EyFTDhl9BSH6JQVIjGiaA Relief For The Family:  https://www.gofundme.com/relief-for-timothy039s-family #Justice4MrTimothy

Support Eurovision 2019 in Tel Aviv

We, the undersigned, believe that music is our shared language, one that transcends boundaries and brings people together under a common bond. We believe that unifying events, such as singing competitions, are crucial to help bridge our cultural divides and bring people of all backgrounds together through their shared love of music. The annual Eurovision Song Contest embodies this unifying power. Every year, millions of people across Europe, and around the world, join together in a massive display of cultural exchange and celebration of music. Unfortunately, this year, the spirit of togetherness is under attack by those calling to boycott Eurovision 2019 because it is being held in Israel, subverting the spirit of the contest and turning it from a tool of unity into a weapon of division.  We believe the cultural boycott movement is an affront to both Palestinians and Israelis who are working to advance peace through compromise, exchange, and mutual recognition. While we all may have differing opinions on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the best path to peace, we all agree that a cultural boycott is not the answer. We call on all our friends and colleagues around the world to express their support for an exciting and successful Eurovision 2019 in Tel Aviv. [بالعربية أدناه] [En français ci-dessous] [En español abajo] [Auf deutsch unten]                                                                --- You can stay updated on everything happening with Eurovision HERE And follow CCFP on social media: Facebook / Twitter / Instagram                                                                 --- French: Nous, les soussignés, pensons que la musique est notre langue commune, une langue qui transcende les frontières et rassemble les gens sous un lien commun. Nous croyons que les événements fédérateurs, tels que les compétitions de chant, sont essentiels pour réduire nos divisions culturelles et rassembler des personnes de tous les horizons par le biais de leur amour commun pour la musique. Le concours annuel Eurovision de la chanson incarne ce pouvoir unificateur. Chaque année, des millions de personnes en Europe et dans le monde entier se rassemblent pour une vaste manifestation d'échanges culturels et de célébrations de la musique. Malheureusement, cette année, l'esprit de solidarité est attaqué par ceux qui appellent au boycott de l'Eurovision 2019 parce qu'il se tient en Israël, subvertissant l'esprit de la lutte et en faisant de l'outil d'unité un outil de division. Nous croyons que le mouvement de boycott culturel est un affront pour les palestiniens et israéliens qui travaillent pour faire progresser la paix par le compromis, l’échange et la reconnaissance mutuelle. Bien que nous puissions tous avoir des opinions divergentes sur le conflit israélo-palestinien et sur la meilleure voie vers la paix, nous sommes tous d’accord pour dire que le boycott culturel n’est pas la solution. Nous appelons tous nos amis et collègues du monde entier à exprimer leur soutien à une Eurovision 2019 excitante et réussie à Tel Aviv.                                                                 -- Spanish: Nosotros, los abajo firmantes, creemos que la música es un lenguaje común; uno que transciende fronteras y une a la gente bajo un vínculo universal. Nosotros creemos que aquellos eventos que unen a la gente, como los son las convocatorias musicales, son cruciales para derribar nuestras diferencias culturales y unir a la gente de distintos orígenes a través de su amor por la música. El Festival de la Canción de Eurovisión representa este poder unificador. Cada año, millones de personas a lo largo de Europa y el mundo celebran en conjunto la diversidad cultural representada en su pasión por la música. Desafortunadamente, este año aquel espíritu unificador está bajo amenaza por aquellos que piden boicotear el Eurovisión 2019 - puesto que se hará en Israel - vulnerando así el espíritu del concurso, y convirtiéndolo en una herramienta de división. Creemos que el movimiento de boicot es una ofensa para todos aquellos israelíes y palestinos que trabajan por alcanzar la paz a través del compromiso, intercambio, y reconocimiento mutuo. Si bien cada uno puede tener opiniones distintas acerca del conflicto árabe-israelí, todos concordamos en que el boicot cultural no es la respuesta. Llamamos a nuestros amigos y colegas alrededor del mundo a expresar su apoyo por lo que será un emocionante y exitoso Festival de la Canción 2019 en Tel Aviv                                                                 --- German: Wir, die Unterzeichner dieses Dokumentes sind der Ansicht, dass die Musik unsere gemeinsame Sprache ist, die Grenzen überschreitet und Menschen zusammenführen kann. Wir sind der Überzeugung,  dass verbindende Veranstaltungen wie Gesangswettbewerbe ein wichtiger Faktor in der Überbrückung kultureller Differenzen sind und Menschen verschiedenster Herkunft aufgrund ihrer Liebe zur Musik zueinander finden lässt.  Der jährlichen Eurovision Song Contest ist eine Verkörperung dieser vereinigenden Kraft der Musik.  Jedes Jahr finden sich Millionen Menschen in ganz Europa und weltweit zusammen, um bei diesem gewaltigen Schauspiel kulturellen Austautausches und der Musik dabei zu sein. Bedauerlicherweise wird dieses Jahr der Geist der Verbundenheit von denjenigen attackiert, die zum Boykott des Eurovision Song Contest 2019 aufrufen, weil er in Israel stattfindet. Sie zerstören damit den Gedanken der Verbundenheit und machen aus einem Werkzeug der Einigung eine Waffe der Spaltung.   Wir glauben diese kulturelle Boykott Bewegung ist ein Affront gegenüber den palästinensischen und israelischen Gemäßigten gleichermaßen, die daran arbeiten den Frieden durch Kompromissbereitschaft, Austausch und gegenseitige Anerkennung voranzutreiben. Wenngleich unsere Meinungen bezüglich des Israelisch-Palästinensischen Konfliktes und einem Weg zum Frieden auseinandergehen mögen, sind wir einig in der Überzeugung, dass kultureller Boykott nicht die Antwort sein kann. Wir bitten Freunde und Kollegen weltweit ihre Unterstützung für einen spannenden und erfolgreichen Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in Tel Aviv zum Ausdruck zu bringen.                                                                    --- Arabic: نحن الموقعون أدناه، نعتقد أن الموسيقى هي لغتنا المشتركة ، وهي لغة تتجاوز الحدود وتجمع الناس معاً تحت رابطة مشتركة. نحن نؤمن بأن المناسبات الجماعية ، مثل الفعاليات و المسابقات الغنائية، امر مهم و قوة لا يستهان بها للمساعدة في سد الفجوات الثقافية و جمع الناس من جميع الخلفيات تحت مظلة حبهم المشترك للموسيقى. تجسد مسابقة الأغنية السنوية يوروفيجن هذه القوة المشتركة. ففي كل عام ، يشارك الملايين من الناس في اوروبا و في جميع أنحاء العالم في هذا العرض الضخم للتبادل الثقافي والاحتفال بالموسيقى. و لكن في هذا العام، للاسف،  تتعرض روح العمل الجماعي للهجوم من قبل أولئك الذين يدعون إلى مقاطعة يوروفيجن بسبب إقامته في إسرائيل، مما سيفسد روح المسابقة ويحولها من أداة وحدة إلى سلاح إنقسامي. نحن نعتقد أن حركة المقاطعة الثقافية هي إهانة للفلسطينيين وللإسرائيليين -على سواء- الذين يعملون على دفع عجلة السلام من خلال التسوية و التواصل والاعتراف المتبادل. لدينا جميعاً آراء متباينة حول النزاع الإسرائيلي الفلسطيني وأفضل السُبل للسلام و لكن نحن نتفق جميعنا على أن المقاطعة الثقافية ليست الحل. ندعو جميع أصدقائنا وزملائنا في جميع أنحاء العالم للتعبير عن دعمهم ليوروفيجن 2019 ناجح و مثيرفي تل أبيب.                                                               --- Hebrew אנו, החתומים למטה, מאמינים שמוזיקה היא השפה המשותפת שלנו. שפה שחוצה גבולות ומחברת בין אנשים.  אנחנו מאמינים שאירועים מאחדים, כמו תחרויות מוזיקליות, חיוניות כדי לסייע ולגשר על שוני תרבותי וכדי לאחד אנשים מכל קצוות החברה סביב אהבתם המשותפת למוזיקה. תחרות האיורוזיון, המתקיימת מידי שנה, מאחדת בתוכה את הכוח המאחד עליו אנחנו מדברים. כל שנה, מיליוני אנשים מרחבי אירופה והעולם כולו, חוברים יחד בתצוגה מרהיבה של תרבות ומוזיקה.  לצערינו, רוח האחדות נמצא תחת איום של אלה הקוראים להחרים את אירוויזיון 2019 מכוון שהיא תתקיים בישראל ובכך חותרים תחת רוח ואווירת התחרות שהופכת את האירוע מכלי של אחדות, לנשק שנועד לפלג. אנחנו מאמינים שהתנועה לחרם התרבות היא עלבון לפלסטינאים וישראלים, הפועלים ועמלים רבות כדי לקדם שלום ע"י הכרה הדדית ומציאת העמק השווה. למרות שלכולנו דעות שונות לגבי הנושא הישראלי-פלסטיני והדרך הנכונה להגעה לשלום, כולנו מסכימים שחרם הוא לא הפתרון. אנחנו קוראים לחברינו ועמיתנו מסביב לעולם להביע תמיכה בקיום אירויזיון 2019 מרגשת ומוצלחת בתל-אביב.

VENEZUELA: APOYO AL DIÁLOGO PROPUESTO POR UY Y MX FRENTE A CRISIS POLÍTICA Y HUMANITARIA

Queremos evitar una guerra civil potenciada por intervención y confrontación armada entre potencias globales (EEUU, Rusia y China) por intereses geo políticos ajenos a Venezuela. El belicismo  solo traerá más miseria y un triste e inútil derramamiento de sangre hermana que enlutará al pueblo venezolano, a Latinoamérica y al mundo entero. Para evitar la guerra es necesaria una presencia masiva de representantes de todos los países del mundo a la convocatoria del encuentro de diálogo por la paz en Venezuela promovida por Uruguay y México que se realizará el próximo 7 de febrero en Montevideo. Creemos que frente a la profundización de la crisis venezolana el rol de la comunidad internacional en todos sus ámbitos socio políticos y culturales, no es el de echar más leña al fuego tomando partido por uno u otro bando sino actuar responsablemente, pacificando y agotando todas las instancias de diálogo posible entre las partes en conflicto.  Respetamos el principio de no injerencia y autodeterminación de los pueblos, por lo cual promovemos un diálogo democrático que pueda culminar en un llamado a elecciones libres sin candidatos ni partidos proscriptos, sin presos políticos y con la tutela y supervisión de la ONU Latinoamérica no es ni será patio trasero, delantero ni lateral de nadie.Los pueblos por la paz unidos, jamás serán vencidos

PLEASE REVOKE ROTIMI AMAECHI AND FAMILY'S VISA..

  The United Nations, Heads of Government, Heads of Parliament and other members of the International Community, We write to bring to your notice, the wanton killings, maiming and brazen violation of human rights of the citizens of Nigeria, particularly the people of Rivers State which enveloped the Gubernatorial Election held on March 9, 2019 by the Minister of Transportation, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, using the Nigerian Military, a litany of security personnel and thugs loyal to the All Progressive Congress (APC). It is per the above ratio, that this petition is raised to save our democracy that is on the precipice. The world would recall that the Supreme Court of Nigeria, in exercising its constitutional functions while determining the suit filed by 22 aggrieved members of the party barred the candidate of the APC from contesting the Rivers Gubernatorial election. Following this judgement by the Supreme Court, Rotimi Amaechi, the leader of the party in Rivers State and his lieutenants have unleashed the most crude form of attack on the people of Rivers State. The media is awash with pictorial and video evidence of the mayhem caused by Rotimi Amechi, in the bid to cause anarchy and destroy Nigeria’s hard earned democracy. The militarization of Rivers State during this election, have been used to perpetrate the worst form of brigandage, tryanny and chaos known to the lexicon of human existence in recent times. Homes and Polling units have been invaded and opposition members shot in cold blood. The military have been used to cart away Electoral materials in an attempt to thwart and subdue the will of the people. The death toll has risen to an astronomical level owing to the desperation of a man whose party fielded no candidate in the election, but has sworn to make the state uninhabitable for the citizens. Suffice it to say, that the Rivers State government and the entire people of Rivers State have times without number, called on the President, the Inspector General of Police and the Chief of Army Staff to bring to an end to wit; the killings and inhuman treatment to no avail. The current federal government out of desperation has further empowered Mr Rotimi Amechi to enable him kill more people. It is vital to note, that the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) working with the incumbent Federal Government suspended the election in Rivers State, after results have been announced at the various polling units, refused to collate same and announce the PDP candidate winner in an election that he had clearly won. This has further caused panic amongst the citizenry who now live in fear. It is against this backdrop, that we ask you to intervene and blacklist Rotimi Amechi who in our opinion has become a terrorist, bar his family members from traveling and withdraw their visas. The people of Rivers State should not die for choosing the path of prosperity and progress. The people must be allowed to elect a government of their choice. Anything to the contrary would be a recipe for anarchy. THANK YOU.

Injustice with Hindus and Christians in Pakistan

On Wednesday 20th March 2019,  two teenage Hindu sisters were abducted by unknown men as the local Hindu community celebrated the festival of Holi. 14 year old Reena Kumari & 16 year old Raveena Kumari were abducted from the town of Daharki in Pakistan’s southern province of Sindh. Daherki Distt. The local Hindu population of the district took to the streets and blocked the local highway protesting the abduction. The girls family claimed that the that sisters had been abducted by people from the Kohbar and Malik tribes on the eve of Holi. Police refused to help Hindu persons protesting the abduction. Family approached the police to lodge a first information report (FIR) but all in vain. The incident took a strange turn after a video uploaded on social media appeared to show the girls converting to Islam. Their expressions clearly speaks how much they are afraid and oppressed by those religous fanatics. The sisters appear to be visibly distressed in the video and rights activists have claimed that this is another case of forced conversion and abduction, which are becoming increasingly common in the southern region of Sindh. It was not free will and the girls were in fact kidnapped and forcibly converted. It's so devasting to write about forced conversions of minor Hindu daughters of Pakistan. I often think how one can be so cruel and oppressive against people belong to other Religons OR school of thought. This is what happening with Religious minorities, this is how Pakistanis surprise minorities on their religious festives. It's my appeal to everyone who is against oppression and injustice, raise voices for these daughters of Pakistan and Save Humanity. Stop Forced Conversion

About the disqualification of Ukraine at Eurovision 2016, revision of the voting results,

The 2016 Eurovision Song Contest was a spectacular show and a testament to a year of hard work by so many people from so many countries. The live shows were world-class television productions with a thriller climax on Saturday night. We understand the passions and emotions that are engendered by the Eurovision Song Contest. In light of this, we have taken notice of your petition and appreciate this opportunity to respond. The winner of the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest was decided by music industry professionals and you, viewers at home, each with a 50 percent stake in the result. Ukraine's Jamala won, thanks to broad support from both the juries as well as televoters. She did so with an outstanding performance of an emotional song, telling a personal story. Australia's Dami Im won the jury vote. Sergey Lazarev won the televoting. They both deserve credit for their world-class performances, their great songs and for being magnanimous in defeat. They may not have won the contest, but responded to the outcome as winners. We respect and appreciate them for that. The Eurovision Song Contest is a competition. There can only be one winner. We understand that not everyone agrees with the outcome of this year's Eurovision Song Contest however in a competition where the results are decided based on a subjective and often very personal opinions, there will always be people who do not agree. Regardless of this, the result remains valid by all means, in accordance with the rules as they were known to each participating broadcaster, each artist and each dedicated fan. Ukraine is, and will remain, the winner of the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest. Whether you agree or disagree, we call upon those who signed this petition to embrace the result, valid in accordance with the rules, and to continue a constructive dialogue about how to further strengthen and improve the Eurovision Song Contest.
