Petition to Youth, Policy Makers

Sign our statements against youth radicalisation

Our petition is realized in the frame of the Erasmus Plus project "RADICABILITY - 2019-1-DE04-KA105-017478" which aims to support youth workers to develop their competences in understanding the main root causes contributing to young people's vulnerability and what can be done to prevent them from being radicalised.  We aim to resolve such issue through youth work raising awareness activities and online campaigning. Join the RADICABILITY project movement and create alternatives to forces of destruction - by signing this pledge to recognize our effort. Ask your peers to learn about youth radicalization with respect and compassion. Share this petition of RADICABILITY project movement. Commit to practicing respect, accommodation, and understanding. We each have a unique and powerful role in stopping extremism but we must confront extremism now! First Campaign Letter: D-E(U)-Radicalization European union is burning with inequalities. There are too many people who have nothing and some others who have too much. When it was born, the EU, in the ideas of founding fathers, should have been a political project based on cooperation and prosperity for everyone. Something in the European integretion project didn't work properly, it's crystal clear.A wide portion of our European community risks to fall into a radicalization spiral. This is something we are supposed to stop. We need concrete actions! We have to put Europe back on track, whatever it takes! In order to prevent radicalization processes, there are many policies we can implement starting from now. In a first place, we have to reduce social and economic inequality by implementing expansive policies that is to say public investments in key sectors, like for example, healthcare, infrastructures and social care. In order to conclude, we think it's useful to talk about migration, which represents one of the most important factors for radicalization. Indeed, during these years, the southern borders of Europe were exposed to huge migration flows. A GOOD solution would be to establish virtuous paths of integration and concretely by providing schools, housing and physicological assistance while te EU must invest in the countries of origin of those people in order to make them safe and economically stable."Hospitality means the right of a foreigner, who arrives in the territory of others, not to be treated hostile."(Immanuel Kant ).EU is about solidarity, pluralism and equality. Breaking down the walls of prejudice to build bridges towards a bright future for our European community. Sincerely Erasmus Radicability project. Second Campaign Letter: Dear Mariya Gabriel- President of the youth department of the European commission, We are contacting you as a group of young people concerned about the danger that radicalization present in Europe and the whole world. We foster the protection of youth to extreme ideas that are present in our society. Therefore, we ask as concern citizens that implementation of new policies to engage students and educator. As policies suggestions we came out with some programs that might help to the solution of this matter, such a solutions are as they follow: • Education activities promoted by the European Union about what radicalization is and how we can identify radical messages. • Promotion of activities that engage youth with people from multicultural backgrounds, especially to vulnerable sides of the population that are more likely to be radicalized. • Give a piece of extensive and detailed information to an educator about how to identify students that might be in danger of being radicalized • Create accessible literature that is easily comprehensible for youth, this one can be available in educations centers, but it’s important to target youth as well that do not attend educational institutions. For this case, we ask for this practical information to available in a communal center. • Promote preventing and active mental health care in school. Since vulnerable youth are more likely to be persuaded by radical groups. we know, you are engaged on well-being of the Euroean youth, we hope you hear our proposal and we relied on you for the better being of our youth. We hear a lot that youth is the future. So, let’s protect our future now that they need us. Sincerely Erasmus Radicability project. Third Campaign Letter: To the president of the European Union Dear Sir,The European Union is facing a hard time with youth radicalization because young people can’t find any support, in family and at school, being negative influenced by social groups and media, which are offering, most of the time, bad examples related to tolerance of different races, nationalities, religions, etc. In these cases, teenagers usually found in strong personalities, who own an important social role, an example to follow.However, this kind of situations are not so positive, so we need to face this social condition by steering young people from this negative influence.For this reason we are suggesting the following:1. Promote family values by introducing psychology support in schools and check periodically their mental state.2. Filtering information from mass media for avoiding bad influence on young people.3. Formalize obligatory lessons about tolerance and diversity. We hope you will pay attention to our petition and will take actions accordingly. With respect, Erasmus Radicability project. Fourth Campaign Letter: Dear Mariya Gabriel:We, the young people, are writing to you because we have a problem at home. Europe has a sickness and our future is becoming darker and darker due to the developing of new radicalized waves that bring souvenirs about our scariest past times. This extreme situation is causing our society damages which are hardly to be reversed. We consider that working on this specific sectors is essential to tackle this issue: Regarding education, we should not forget this is the basis of every society. Hence, it is important to start to teach principles, values and encourage a more emotional education. At these times, youth people need to hear more than one side of their history and current issues. Developing critical thinking and social engagement is vital. Moreover, we propose more integration programs to enrich intercultural knowledge and raise empathy. For diminishing vulnerability, we claim that psychological assistance at schools is needed. Teachers are driving forces of change and they have to participate actively. To a certain extent, social inequality is a cause of this issue. You as decision making powers are there to implement policies, eradicating poverty not keeping our sources in the hands of a few. Radicalization is attacking the mediocre part of the society, it is like a severe illness searching the weakest. Thus, we must search for its roots and attempt to stop its spreading. We beg you to protect our rights, lives and hopes.Sincerely yoursNatalia Cediel, Charly Lagarde Cabañero, Stela Milkova, Mădălina Bratu, Aleksandra Petrova Fifth Campaign Letter: Dear decision makers, Radicalisation, over the past years, has been highlighted as a topic of debate in which it can be shaped in various forms such as political, social, cultural and religious. Radicalisation is an issue because it has proven to increase the exercised level of violence, targeted exclusion, disorder and in extreme cases can even lead to crimes. As participants of the training course regarding Radicalisation, we would like to propose some solution to decrease the levels of youth radicalisation in the European Union. As a complex topic in different fields, finding a complete solution is a continuous process, however, we would like to propose some solutions to prevent or decrease future consequences of radicalisation. First of all, we would like to address education as an important sector as we believe that radicalisation is often due to the lack of knowledge, awareness and values. A concrete measure here is to introduce weekly courses embedded in the grading system that promote and teach ethical matters. This can be done in the form of community service and in general set the foundation for common norms and values. Besides this, a greater emphasis can be put on the importance of team building and mutual understanding. This taught in the form of workshops or seminars on a monthly basis. Furthermore, more awareness has to be directed towards psychological matters as a vulnerable mental state of the individual can lead to a higher risk of radicalising. Therefore, psychologists or therapists should be directly available for students at all times. We, as participants of the training course "RADICABILITY - 2019-1-DE04-KA105-017478" and most importantly as young citizens of the European Union, cannot emphasise enough on the priority of introducing matters to decrease any level of radicalisation and extremism in our society. We hope you take this letter with the listed solutions into consideration when approaching the topic of human rights and would like thank you for taking time to read this proposal. Sincerely, Amalia Alibaev, Alexandro Ariciuc, Asen Aleksiev, Gorkiem Tufan, Laura Seidl and Vaida Tufan -------------------------------------------------------------- As RADICABILITY project movement, we speak in one voice, and call on YOU to join us."

Petition to La Comisión Interamericana de Derechos Humanos y la Corte Internacional de Justicia, @CIDH @CIJ_ICJ, @reuters

Paz para los pueblos del Ecuador

Comisión Interamericana de Derechos Humanos,Corte Internacional de Justicia,A todos los medios de comunicación,A la opinión pública y sociedad civil en general: Por la presente, manifestamos nuestra preocupación y nuestro repudio por la represión desatada contra la movilización del pueblo que lucha en defensa de sus derechos y en particular los derechos colectivos de pueblos y nacionalidades indígenas, afroecuatorianas y montubias: mujeres, hombres, niños, jóvenes y adultos, quienes están siendo fuertemente reprimidos por las fuerzas policiales y militares al mando del Presidente de Ecuador: Lenín Moreno. Queremos apelar al propio planteamiento de Lenín Moreno, Presidente de Ecuador, realizado en Las Naciones Unidas donde instó a los líderes mundiales a considerar como principal pilar de su gestión: “El respeto a los derechos humanos, económicos, sociales y culturales”. Es importante mencionar que como parte de las obligaciones internacionales en materia de derechos humanos eso que el Presidente Lenin Moreno pide considerar se encuentran el deber de garantía y la obligación de contar con medidas adecuadas para el respeto de los derechos Humanos. Por deber de garantía, el gobierno de Ecuador debe garantizar y proteger por todos los medios, los derechos individuales y colectivos de todas las personas que habitan el territorio ecuatoriano, principalmente los derechos de los Pueblos Indígenas; situación a que ha sido no sólo incumplida, si no, violada flagrantemente por el gobierno de Ecuador, pues ha promovido la represión y la violencia, poniendo en grave riesgo la vida, la dignidad, la salud, la integridad, así como la libertad de ciudadanos y ciudadanas. Sin embargo, atenta principalmente y de forma directa contra la libre determinación de los pueblos indígenas, quienes claramente han planteado sus posturas en relación con las medidas económicas que el presidente Moreno ha tomado, situación que genera responsabilidades en materia internacional para él, personalmente, y para su gobierno. En este contexto, el estado de excepción resulta excesivo y sin sentido humano; sin observancia de los estándares internacionales, pues no se ha realizado un juicio de proporcionalidad, ni un análisis de la necesidad de la medida impuesta, siendo evidente la mala fe con que se actúa. Los y las abajo firmantes, intelectuales, académicos, activistas, sociedad civil, miembros de Organizaciones de América Latina y otras regiones del mundo, reiteramos nuestro rotundo rechazo al uso excesivo de la fuerza y el incremento progresivo de la violencia por parte de las fuerzas del orden, por lo que nos solidarizamos con la CONAIE y demás organizaciones sociales que se encuentran movilizados en las calles en estos momentos. Condenamos enérgicamente el uso de la fuerza que ya ha dado como resultado: muertos, heridos, niños huérfanos, medios de comunicación intervenidos y periodistas encarcelados. Estamos atentos a lo que suceda en éstos días. Pedimos que se respeten los derechos humanos de quienes ejercen legítimamente su derecho a la protesta y en defensa de los derechos colectivos de los pueblos. Apoyamos la demanda del pueblo ecuatoriano en su lucha por dejar sin efecto el paquete de ajuste económico, pues ese mismo violenta aun más los derechos humanos de la población en general. Solicitamos de la manera más atenta que que desde el poder que se les confiere tanto a la Comisión Interamericana de Derechos Humanos, a la Corte Internacional de Justicia, y a las entidades correspondientes, emitan una recomendación de resolución pacífica a ese conflicto, a la brevedad posible. A los medios les pedimos dar cobertura puntual y veraz a lo que está sucediendo. A a la sociedad civil, en general, le pedimos sumarse a esta petición de paz para nuestros hermanos indígenas en Ecuador. [ENGLISH]Inter-american Comission on Human RightsInternational Court of JusticeInternational media, journalists, citizens and public opinion: We hereby manifest our concern and rejection of the repression unleashed upon the Ecuadorian people’s mobilization in defense of their own rights, particularly the collective rights of the indigenous peoples and nationalities, Afro-Ecuadorians and Montubians: women, men, children, youngsters and adults who are being subjected to intense repression by police and military forces under your command. We appeal to the president of Ecuador, Mr. Lenín Moreno’s own words at the United Nations, where he called upon world leaders to consider “the respect for human, economic, social and cultural rights” as the main pillar for governance, which concurs with the nation project of the current Mexican government with an emphasis on the protection, strengthening and visibility of our native peoples and communities. It is worth mentioning that Mr. Lenín Moreno’s duty to provide appropiate measures that guarantee and ensure respect for human rights is but part of the international human rights liabilities that need to be emphasized hereon. The duty to guarantee the aforementioned rights entails ensuring and protecting by any means necessary the individual and collective rights of all people living in the Ecuadorian territory, mainly the rights of the Indigenous Nations. Mr. Moreno’s government is not only failing to fulfill this obligation, but it is violating it flagrantly, by instigating repression and violence, while jeopardizing the life, dignity, wellbeing, integrity and freedom of all citizens alike. Above all, it is acting directly against the self-determination of the indigenous peoples who are clearly stating their position in regards to the economic measures that Mr. Moreno has taken. All this entails international responsibilities that fall directly upon Mr. Moreno and his government. The present state of exception is excessive and lacks in human sense; it fails to meet international standards inasmuch as there has been no assessment of proportionality nor an analysis of the need for these measures. It is therefore evident that these actions have been taken in bad faith. The signatories of this document — intellectuals, academics, activists and members of organizations throughout Latin America and other regions of the world — reiterate our resounding condemnation of the excessive use of force and the constant intensification of violence by the authorities, and we express our solidarity with CONAIE and the other social organizations currently in the streets. We emphatically condemn the use of force that has already resulted in various deaths, numerous injuries and children orphaned. Likewise the media has been tampered with and journalists have been imprisoned. We are watching and waiting to see what will happen as the march continues. We call upon you to uphold the human rights of those who are legitimately exercising their right to protest and to defend the collective rights of their peoples. We support the demands of the Ecuadorian people in their struggle to stop this economic adjustment package that would even further violate the human rights of the population as a whole. Atentamente, Colectivo: @SERTransversal #CulturaDePaz

Que se Legisle y Potencie la Creación de Espacios Públicos Libres de Sustancias Tóxicas.

Vivimos inmersos en una matriz tóxica que amenaza y agrava la Salud Pública. El Gobierno Español debe adoptar las medidas pertinentes de carácter normativo y político que garanticen a la población poder disfrutar, como mínimo, de espacios públicos seguros. Amparándose, cuando menos, en el derecho inalienable de todo individuo a gozar de un ambiente saludable. La sociedad se expone de manera involuntaria y cotidiana a sustancias tóxicas. Una ventilación ineficiente, el uso de productos de limpieza e higiene personal convencionales, pesticidas, materiales de construcción, decoración, mobiliario, revestimientos, suelos etc. convierten los diferentes emplazamientos en ambientes hostiles para personas con algún grado de sensibilidad química (Sensibilidad Química Múltiple -SQM-, Síndrome de Fatiga Crónica-SFC-, Fibromialgia -FM-, Síndrome de Sensibilización Central -SSC-) e igualmente insalubres; para la población “sana”. Los Centros Sanitarios y las escuelas son lugares particularmente vulnerables requiriendo una atención inmediata. El tratamiento más eficaz es impedir la exposición. Estas sustancias químicas nocivas son iniciadoras y disparadoras de diferentes enfermedades no transmisibles y que son prevenibles (1). La mayor parte de las muertes se atribuyen a vivir o trabajar en entornos insalubres. Entre los factores de riesgo se encuentran la exposición a productos químicos (2).  Es necesario que se apliquen de manera urgente medidas que permitan detectar las sustancias conflictivas donde han sido introducidas y sustituir los elementos que las contienen por otras alternativas. Existen innumerables opciones que frente a las habituales son  factibles, más económicas, eficaces e inocuas para el ser humano (1).     Es imperativo asegurar la accesibilidad a la que por derecho tienen los afectados por algún grado de sensibilidad química que hoy por hoy están siendo excluidos de la sociedad,  impedir que su situación se agrave y evitar que el número de casos por este tipo de enfermedades continúe en aumento (1). Siendo esta además, una cuestión de responsabilidad compartida con la industria, derivada de nuestro estilo de vida.   Por favor, firma esta petición. Tanto si has desarrollado algún tipo de sensibilidad química como si no quieres exponerte a sustancias nocivas que se utilizan sin control y que, a bajas concentraciones, pueden provocarte un abanico de patologías. Ninguna persona está exenta de sufrir alguna enfermedad asociada a la exposición por tóxicos. Es un deber y responsabilidad de tod@s proteger de manera inmediata a la población más vulnerable como son los enferm@s, los niñ@s y los ancian@s. ¡Ganamos tod@s! ¡GRACIAS! 1.       De Prada, C. 2010.
