Create a UN anti-fascism comittee to override Trump's policies

This petition had 9 supporters

With the election of Donald Trump, the rights of the LGBTQ community, minorities, Muslims and women are under attack. Minorities now face daily harassment by right-wing extremists, and millions of undocumented families live every waking and sleeping moment in fear of deportation. Trump’s proposed Muslim ban not only threatens the rights of peaceful Muslims looking to enter the country legally, but also emboldens Islamophobic racists worldwide to continue to attack and harass Muslims in their communities. In addition, Trump’s climate change denial, opposition to the EPA and plans to massively expand the shale and coal industries threatens the very existence of our planet as we know it. 

With the heavy involvement of Russian intelligence in the US elections now confirmed, and after Trump lost the popular vote by millions of votes, a vast number of legal experts are now calling for his impeachment. But this is a long and uncertain process, and what many experts have suggested instead is to encourage the UN to intervene in US domestic policy in order to prevent fascist and environmentally damaging legislation from being enacted. We kindly ask that you to sign this petition, urging the UN to set up a council dedicated to fighting fascism and environmental destruction, which will closely monitor Trump’s administration, and intervene when their decisions threaten the peace and stability of the planet.

Everyone agrees that something needs to be done to end the growing tide of fascism, but it is up to us to act now before more damage is done. This is not a time to sit on the side lines and watch hopelessly as the world descends into fascism. Our children’s futures are at stake here, and the world needs you to make your voice heard. Do not let the sacrifices of those who fought against the Nazis and for Civil Rights in America, be in vain. Millions of people have died to fight fascism, racism and sexism, all we’re asking for is your signature. It’s time for those who still care about decency, tolerance and diversity to stand up for what is right, and to protect those who cannot protect themselves.
