Updating the Petition.
Jul 22, 2013 — Thanks to all of you the movement has added new steam. We have completed correcting the errors in the original presentation and will be published later on tonight. While the original action by the senate was misunderstood, the case has actually reinforced many and highlights the need for unambiguous protection for girls who have none otherwise. I am submitting the update and several of your comments and NGO reports of victims to our UN contact. We expect that a formal presentation will be made on August 1, but our contact will send a letter acknowledging receipt of the statement and presenting us with a schedule of how this petition will move within the institution.
Again, thank you for all the support. We just might make change for those who need it the most.
Keep fighting for people power!
