Hold Myanmar’s military accountable for genocide

In Myanmar, young children, women and men, the old and the disabled have been tortured, set on fire, raped, murdered and their houses burned. The persecution of the Rohingya Muslim community has been well documented through the media.We started this petition to hold those in charge to account through the International Criminal Court (ICC). We crowdfunded to put pressure on the United Nations, we protested outside Downing Street and we also have gotten in-touch with International Lawyers to pursue an investigation to put on pressure. A year later, the UN have released a report saying that 6 of top military leaders should be investigated for genocide and other crimes against humanity. Although they say that it should be referred to the ICC, a monument and rare step, the referral still needs the backing of the permanent five Security Council members - and may be rejected.That’s why we need to add as much pressure as possible to show that this issue cannot be ignored. Please sign this petition to add public pressure so that the people responsible for destroying lives are actually held accountable.More than 10,000 Rohingya Muslims have been murdered. Over 700,000 Rohingya have been displaced. We as the humankind have to take action because they are innocent people that don't deserve this. The Rohingya community is being ethnically cleaned as the army and the government deems (Islam) a foreign. The OHCHR also noted that “more than half of the women its human rights team interviewed reported having suffered rape or other forms of sexual violence. Many other interviewees reported witnessing killings, including of family members and having family who were missing.” When I started this petition, the UN said that war crimes having been committed was “very likely.” Now, they say genocide must investigated. Myanmar’s leader Aung Sang Su Kyi should also be held accountable. This is not easy but we are getting closer. The Rohingya community are still suffering - justice is needed - history will wonder how we have allowed this to happen. We say never again.The enforcement of the UN’s findings would go a long way in ensuring justice for the Rohingya people alongside other vulnerable minorities.Please help us to convince the International Criminal Court to invesitgate by signing this petition.

Jatuhkan sanksi PBB untuk Cina penyiksa Muslim Uyghur

https://www.msn.com/id-id/berita/dunia/tak-tahan-disiksa-china-wanita-muslim-uighur-minta-dibunuh/ar-BBQeMKA?ocid=spartandhp *Tak Tahan Disiksa China, Wanita Muslim Uighur Minta Dibunuh* Seorang perempuan etnis Muslim Uighur membeberkan perlakuan Pemerintah China terhadap mereka. Ia mengaku kerap menjadi korban penyiksaan dan pernah berpikir untuk minta dibunuh. Mihirigul Tursun saat berada di Amerika Serikat menceritakan penyiksaan yang diterimanya saat berada di kamp detensi yang khusus dibuat untuk menahan warga Uighur. Selama berada di sana, wanita 29 tahun itu menyebut dirinya diperiksa selama empat hari tanpa tidur. Rambutnya pun dicukur hingga gundul. Tak hanya itu, berulang kali badannya disetrum. Usai menerima berbagai macam siksaan, Tursun pernah dipaksa ikut pemeriksaan medis yang aneh dan tanpa tujuan jelas. Ia mengatakan, dirinya tiga kali ditangkap dan dibawa ke detensi. Semakin sering ditangkap, semakin sadis pula penyiksaan yang diterima."Saya pikir saya lebih baik mati dari pada melewati segala siksaan itu, dan saya memohon kepada mereka untuk membunuh saya," ujar Tursun seperti dikutip AP dalam forum National Press Club di Washington DC, AS, Kamis (29/11). Tursun merupakan wanita yang lahir dan besar di China. Saat dewasa ia pergi ke Mesir untuk melanjutkan studi. Di Mesir, Tursun bertemu suaminya. Bersama sang suami, Tursun memiliki tiga anak. Ketika kembali ke China 2015 lalu, Tursun dipenjara untuk pertama kalinya tanpa mengetahui dengan jelas alasan penangkapan tersebut. Ia dipisahkan paksa dengan anak dan bayinya. Ketika lepas dari penjara, seorang anaknya ternyata telah meninggal dunia. Sementara dua lainnya menderita masalah kesehatan. Ketika berada di kamp, Tursun melihat beberapa kejadian penyiksaan aneh terhadap warga Uighur lain. Salah satunya, ketika seorang kerabatnya diminta minum pil yang membuatnya langsung pingsan. Tursun menegaskan, selain siksaan fisik, petugas keamanan China juga kerap melontarkan ucapan diskiriminatif."Saya tidak ingat pasti, tapi pernah mulut saya berbusa dan saya mulai hilang kesadaran. Kata terakhir yang saya ingat dari mereka adalah menjadi Uighur adalah tindakan kriminal," kata dia. Kesaksian Tursun disampaikan seiring membesarnya kekhawatiran dunia mengenai perlakuan China terhadap etnis Muslim Uighur yang mayoritas tinggal di Xinjiang. China dituding menahan dua juta etnis Uighur di detensi yang mereka sebut kamp re-edukasi. Kamp itu adalah bagian program persatuan etnis yang digaungkan Pemerintah China di Xinjiang.

Unámonos a favor del AMAZONAS. ¡Cesemos los incendios y paremos la deforestación!

El Amazonas representa el hogar de más de 600 especies de animales y aves, algunas que son únicas en su especie y corren el riesgo de extinguirse. Se trata del único lugar con la diversidad animal más extensa del planeta. Lamentablemente los medios tradicionales y las autoridades están haciendo caso omiso a esta tragedia que está ocurriendo. Son 17 días que el Amazonas está siendo consumido por un voraz incendio, días en los cuales no se ha declarado como alerta ambiental. Además son varios años que el Amazonas está siendo talado indiscriminadamente, el oxígeno generado en esa región representa el 20% utilizado por todos los seres humanos.  El Amazonas necesita toda la ayuda que podamos brindarle, a causa de esta situación miles de familias se están quedando sin hogar, sin alimento y desprotegidos. Llamamos a todos los gobernantes, a las organizaciones ambientales, ONG's y cualquier persona con la capacidad de brindar socorro a los afectados, entre ellos personas y animales y sobre todo a restaurar la paz en el Amazonas y que éste sea reforestado, estoy seguro que esta petición puede llegar a las manos correctas. Así mismo instamos a las Naciones Unidas, a la Unión Europea y a quien le concierna, la investigación sobre la deforestación en el Amazonas y posterior sanción a los responsables del incendio. Firma y comparte esta petición porque lo que está ocurriendo es una grave amenaza a los derechos a la vida, a la salud, al agua, a la alimentación y a un medio ambiente sano para los niños, niñas, jóvenes y adultos que vivimos y viviremos en un planeta moribundo por el cambio climático. ¡NO ACELEREMOS NUESTRA EXTINCIÓN!

*STOP RAPE * Lets change the statement "4th unsafe country for women". Start Death Penalty

We are a part of community called Youth Against Rape. Where we are fighting for those people who are scared to raise there voice against rape, molestation and acid attack. We have prepared a data which projects that many cases are still not being reported and most of the cases are genuine but the victims and witnesses are being threatened or attacked at different occasions. To take a step forward we need to change the mentality of the society and amend few laws against rape, molestation and acid attack criminals and the victims who have faced it.   We are students, mothers, brothers, sisters and father's and we want to change the future of India. To make India the safest country in future we need to educate the future generations to be bold and to report any incident they see around them without any fear.  Walking on streets would become safer in time.  Although we organize seminars with school in every state we still get cases, where people say it the fault of the victim, we fail to understand this blame game. :- Why can't we change the way we think?  Let the girls wear what they want to? Why can't teacher teach necessary etiquettes to children in school like other subjects? Humanity can't be taught but laws can be amended. We, at youth against rape have the following demands and aspirations for the betterment of Indian society as a whole:- 1. Execution Of Death Penalty We want implementation of death penalty for Rapist, those who have been sentenced after being proved guity. This measure is important to instil fear among people and to show them that their actions have equal consequences. Few List With Name,Time, Current Status a)Dilip Bankar,13 year, in Sc (b) jitender Bagwan , Divender Dhurndhure , Babu Ketan - 6 Years, in Sc (c) Firoj Saha- 5 years, in Sc , In 2012 Nirbhya case. Total 64 Death Penalty are Pending . We want the law to start implementation from these cases. 2. Punishment For Females Filing fake Cases against men  We also want minimum 14 years of imprisonment for females who file fake cases against men to exploit them. The responsibility of ensuring a respectable society is from both genders and no human has the right to destroy another human being's life. Both genders should be equally accountable for their wrong doings. 3. Start Sex Education By Expert's  We want compulsory sex education by experts in all schools. Although many acts have been passed by various boards, but due to the failed implementation children continue to be unaware of what they are doing. The increasing cases of juveniles raping are a proof that the education system is going wrong somewhere. We want to sensitize children from the beginning and make them realize their moral responsibility towards society. 4. Forensic Labs  We want proper forensic labs in every city with trained and expert doctors for treating the victims. Many cases of tampering of medical reports are common. In the eyes of Justice department, this is the most important evidence, hence should be handled by trained people who understand the importance of this confidential issue and ask themselves if they are doing the right thing. We easily find difference between sex and rape . 5. Shift Case's On Fast Track Court For All Rape Victims - On 12 July Finance minister approved budget of 700 Crore Fund Through Nirbhaya Fund For 1023 Fast Track Court. We want the hearings of all the cases of rape to be in the fast track courts and the verdicts to be announced within 1 month. 6. Victim & Witness Protection program We also want government to pass rules to provide witness protection program to every witness and victim who are involved in the case as there is danger to their life till justice is served, government should take the responsibility of transfer of victim , if needed after investigation for their safety. 7. President mercy rule on Rape Case's We want Indian government to re think about president mercy rule for rapist . A rapist never shows mercy to the rape victim and her family. So why should the system show mercy to him? 8. Permission To Ngo's and Trusts to do Awareness Programs in institutions  As Mostly schools reject the proposal for awareness programs after listening to the word rape , sex etc. These are some taboo words that we often hear. We want an official notice from education ministry  to make sex education a mandatory subject in every school and college. We have analyised that Mentality Is Not The Reason Behind Rape but it is a major part of this issue. - We Are Working on Each Factor, Rape Cases are increasing rapidly and mostly within normal family.  Case 1: The recent rape and murder of an nine month old girl in Warangal (Telangana) . Just think about it and create an image in your mind why this happened? What was the fault of the victim? She was Just 9 months old !!! Case 2: The family of another rape victim was murdered  by the MLA before the police took any action. The people are angry now but also in despair. So much has happened till now and no doubt our government is taking good steps but a strict action not taken till now . What are we all waiting for? Do the all People's wants to see India's name on 1st number in the unsafe nation list?  First, the Criminal’s rapes the victim and then the system repeatedly rapes the Survivors. Now cases of suicide by Men’s are increasing Day by Day. A lie from girls destroy men’s life and his entire family suffers the consequences.  Why can’t the law open the blinded eyes and see the hidden truth? Now we can't ignore these issues any more , if amendment of the death penalty law is not enforced till 16 October'2019 , we have planned something on #17oct2019 .

Stop the yulin dog meat eating festival!

The Lychee and Dog Meat Festival, commonly referred to as Yulin Dog Meat Festival, is an annual celebration held in Yulin, Guangxi, China, during the summer solstice in which festival goers eat dog meat and lychees. The festival began in 2009 and spans about ten days during which it is estimated that 10,000–15,000 dogs are consumed. The festival has been criticised by animal welfare and animal rights supporters. The tradition of dog meat consumption began over 4,000 years ago in China. Chinese practitioners of folk medicine believe that dog meat would help ward off the heat felt through the summer months. It wasn't until recent years that the festival in Yulin began. The festival is celebrated annually in Yulin, Guangxi, China, during the summer solstice in June, by eating dog meat and lychees. About 10,000 to 15,000 dogs are consumed during the 10 days of the festival. This number has decreased to 1,000 in 2015. Throughout the 10 days of festivities, dogs are paraded in wooden crates and metal cages and are taken to be skinned and cooked for consumption by festival visitors and local residents Inaugurated 21 June 2009Most recent 21 June 2018Previous event 21 June 2019Next event 21 June 2020 Dogs are very beautiful and loving creatures who deserve to have a good life. Killing them and eating them should be made illegal and people who do this should be jailed for eternity. Animals have equal rights to live as humans do. Its always good to be polite to our animal neighbours . Sign this petition to do your part on stopping the yulin dog meat festival.

Stop the Sudanese government & Militias from using Ammunition & Excessive Force on Peaceful Protesters

UN Independent Expert on the situation of human rights in the Sudan Amnesty International Human Rights Action Center UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression UN Special Rapporteur on the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and of association UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders UN Human Rights Committee UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention RE: Use of ammunition & Excessive Force on Peaceful Protesters by Sudanese government & Militias Honorable Commissioners, We, the undersigned, would like to draw your kind attention to the continuous atrocities and excessive use of force by Sudan government forces and militias upon cracking down on peaceful protests that have erupted in major cities as of Wednesday, December 19,2018. We urge your excellences to call on the Government of Sudan to respect the people’s rights to freedom of assembly, association and expression as guaranteed in international laws and UN treaties ratified by Sudan, and Sudan’s own National Constitution and demand that the Government of Sudan refrain from using militias, ammunition and excessive force to disperse protests. The Government of Sudan continues to deny its citizens’ the rights of assembly, expression and the right to protest the government’s political and economic policies. Recently, the government failed to pay the wages and salaries of its civil servants, and added insult to injury by raising the prices of basic goods and fuel, while limiting the amounts that the public can withdraw from their own money. The Sudanese people took to the streets in many cities including Atbara, Port Sudan, Gadaref, and Alnuhud protesting the economic melt down and the shortage in basic necessities. Some of these protests were met by unprecedented use of force that resulted in loss of lives in many cities. True to its record in crushing peaceful protests, various chilling videos circulating in social media show government militia personnel intimidating and threatening to kill peaceful demonstrators. In September 2013 alone, government forces used live ammunition to disperse peaceful protests, killing more than 170 protesters and detaining at least 800 others without charge.  Many of those detained were subjected to torture and abuse in detention. There has been no accountability for the deaths, injuries and various other abuses perpetrated by Sudanese authorities against peaceful protesters. The National Security Act (NSA) of 2010 bestows a host of immunities to the members of Sudan Armed Forces granting them protection from prosecution in civil courts, irrespective of the crimes those units or individuals may commit. To that end, article 42(2) of the Armed Forces Act of 2007, article 45(1) of the Police Act of 2008, and article 46 of the National Intelligence & Security Service (NISS) guarantee that immunity. We, the undersigned, urge your excellences to implore the Government of Sudan to respect and uphold the rights of all Sudanese to freedom of expression, association, assembly, and freedom of the press. We further urge your excellences to demand that the Government of Sudan refrain from the use of militias, live ammunition and excessive use of force against peaceful protesters. Sincerely,
