Open Letter to Supreme Court Pakistan
Open Letter to Supreme Court on the Current Situation in Pakistan Honorable Supreme Court, I may not have the required academic credentials or verified blue tick to count as pressure group, but I write to you as a Pakistani who cares about the country & our dignity. The case that you are hearing will decide the self esteem of each and everyone in Pakistan including yours and our collectively dignity as a Nation. On one side, there are common citizens of Pakistan who (arguably) haven't been this united politically ever for a cause. They are united because they finally felt a connection and ownership of Pakistan, because a leader stood up for them & said "Dosti Sab se, Ghulami kisi ki nahi". It might be a mere phrase but it gives Goosebumps to a common Pakistanis who had waited for this day for decades. Right after the "Absolutely Not" statement, a political party's Chairman goes on trip to a foreign country for more than a week without sharing any meeting details or the purpose of the trip. He meets officials of the country who admit that they meddle with Pakistan affairs. Series of meetups were then organized between foreign country's officials, opposition, Naaraz PTI MNAs and even our country's media personnel to plan this No Confidence Motion. The famous "letter" also mentions the Motion even before it was even filed in National Assembly. The most painful thing for you and me, and all Pakistanis around the World is this (paraphrased) line: "If No Confidence Motion against PM Imran Khan is successful, Pakistan will be Forgiven but if it's not, there will be consequences" Outrageous is such a small word for this. 75 years after independence, they can still say this to us? Why only PTI raised this & not any other party is pretty obvious. What's most important is where Pakistanis stand today; The Imran Khan who was blamed for Inflation became the biggest hero, for stance on sovereignty. Zinda Qaum Pakistan didn't just stop at this. They proved how much they care about things like Self Esteem, Dignity & Sovereignty by going to Islamabad Jalsa on March 27, 2022 in record numbers. The public opinion on social media & anywhere you go proved Nation's pulse. You ask a member of any segment of the society, they will say PM Imran Khan is right and we stand behind him for the sake of our Nation. I believe it was the first time ex Servicemen community spoke publicly in favor of a National Stance by a PM. Coming back to the timeline of events of foreign conspiracy ... the series of meetups and mention of No Confidence Motion in letter before it was filed is extremely suspicious. I agree that it may not be proof enough for the honorable court. However, after the National Security Committee (NSC) ruling that it was "blatant interference in the internal affairs of Pakistan by the country in question", how is there any doubt left that people who "continued" to support the Motion, were not part of foreign conspiracy. Do they not respect the National Security Committee (the highest Security forum of our country)? They refused to attend the Parliamentary briefing on the letter which could have given them all answers. Yesterday, DG ISPR responded to them that they stand by NSC's ruling. Again, after NSC ruling, shouldn't they be tried for treason (Ghaddari) because they continued with the Motion after knowing about "blatant interference"? Their recent attacks on institutions and pressure tactics shall also be strongly condemned. After Speaker's rejection of Motion based on Article 5, honorable court's taking this up is welcomed. Three things that are giving hope to millions that Pakistan's sovereignty stays are: 1) Article 69 which says "proceedings in Parliament shall not be called in question" 2) Recent ruling of esteemed court that Parliament affairs are internal affairs, during recent "Tashreeh" exercise 3) Raza Rabbani who is asking court to intervene now is on record saying "Internal Proceedings of Parliament cannot be called in question by any court of law" I understand that the treason charge to all opposition members of Parliament may take a longer time to prove but letting the Parliament affairs stay internal per Constitution of 1973 is the hope of millions right now. It's our defining moment as a country. Opposition who was asking for fresh elections is now running away from Elections because they know that people won't forgive Ghaddars/Traitors. It will be extremely depressing if their pressure tactics overrule the pulse of Pakistan, strongly in favor of sovereignty. The amount of ownership people have started taking of Pakistan will be crushed to the point of no recovery or at least a very long recovery. The corrupt & selfish politicians who destroyed Pakistan are trying to come back and rule, it is the scariest feeling as a Pakistani. This is the same Mafia who has attacked the Supreme Court in the past, humiliated our institutions in their public Jalsas even including name of our chief. This is the same Mafia who meets enemies of Pakistan in foreign countries to hurt us in the gut. If they succeed in creating undue pressure, we all fail as citizens of Pakistan, our dignity will be dented. Elections would give equal chance to all parties, even they'll get a chance to use foreign influence again, but this time vs 22 crore Pakistanis! Thanks for your time! Drafted by Jibran Ilyas
Congress: Protect our Right to Choose!
UPDATE 6/24/2022: This morning, the Supreme Court officially overturned Roe v. Wade, despite the fact that 61% of Americans support the right to safe abortion. A majority of our Senators and Representatives – even some moderate Republicans – say they believe in keeping abortion legal and safe. It’s time for them to live up to their word. Congress must act NOW and agree on legislation that offers federal protection for access to abortion – regardless of where a pregnant person lives. Click here to email your elected officials and demand they pass legislation that protects our right to choose. My name is Kate and I was once faced with one of the toughest decisions a woman could ever make. During my first trimester, I found out my pregnancy was no longer progressing. Overwhelmed with grief and anxiety, my doctor recommended D&C, a procedure that allowed me to choose the best route for my physical health. This procedure further permitted me to skip pain I would have otherwise had to endure, mentally and physically. D&C is a form of abortion and such a procedure allowed me to choose what was best for me and my family. Back then, I had options. Those options will be wiped away for other women in my home state of Indiana and all across the country when Roe v. Wade is overturned by the Supreme Court next month – as indicated by the leaked draft of Justice Samuel Alito. Other women deserve to have the same choice I had. My experience does not include those who are sexually abused and, as a result, become pregnant. The standard which the Supreme Court is setting would hinder a victim’s right to abortion after rape or incest as well. No girl or woman should be forced to give birth – especially after becoming pregnant under despicable circumstances. I refuse to allow our generation to be the first in U.S. history where daughters have fewer rights and less freedom than their mothers. As a mother myself, such a regression of protections and rights is frankly appalling. Further, a right to necessary healthcare based on geographic location is abhorrent and against common decency. I refuse to live in an America where a woman's ability to live out her destiny is limited by her zip code. Forced births are un-American and the time to end this assault on the dignity of pregnant people is now. National legislation is vital in this moment. The majority of our Senators and Representatives – even some moderate Republicans – say they believe in access to safe abortion. Congress must draft and agree on legislation that offers federal protection for access to abortion – regardless of where a pregnant person lives. Our elected officials represent the people of this country. The majority of us want access to safe and legal abortions. It is their duty to act in our best interest. Lives are on the line. Sign this petition, then call your Senator and representatives and demand they pass legislation that protects our right to choose.

Pass Universal Background Checks for Gun Sales
This year, 3,044 students aren't going to graduate because they were killed by a gun. That's 3,044 kids who won't be walking across a stage to receive a diploma. 3,044 kids who won't go on to become doctors, teachers, lawyers, or artists. 3,044 kids who never got to pursue their dreams. They are The Lost Class. Graduation season is meant to symbolize potential. But for so many families, graduation season is a reminder of all the lost potential. That's why we need to work together to make sure we don't continue to lose more graduates to guns. Join Change the Ref and the fight to pass universal background checks on all gun sales by signing this petition calling on the United States Congress to pass it into law. Let’s ensure that the futures of our students and our country remain bright and full of possibility.

Josep Borrell Fontelles, High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security PolicyThe Heads of the Governments of the EU Member States Today Ukraine and the whole of Europe face an extraordinary threat caused by Russia’s aggression and Putin’s attempt to change the democratically elected government of Ukraine. We, the Georgian people, fully support Ukraine’s heroic fight for independence and sovereignty. We are heartened to see that the whole world is in solidarity with President Zelensky and his people. Ukrainians are fighting not only for their future but also for the future of Europeans, for the future of Georgia and Moldova, and for every individual, family, and country who wants to live in peace, prosperity, and security. We, the Georgian people, face the same challenges as Ukraine does. Russia, too, has occupied our land, has waged war against our statehood and sovereignty, and has attempted to change democratically elected Government through force and hybrid warfare. We were first to withstand this deadly challenge in 2008, albeit at a tremendous human cost and Russia’s occupation of 20% of our territory. We are glad to see that European leaders and public opinion are inclined towards accepting Ukraine, whole and free to the family of European nations. We fully support President Zelensky’s drive for Ukraine to join the European Union. We are also glad to see that the President of the European Council and the President of the European Commission, together with many EU member states and Members of the European Parliament, plan to discuss Ukraine’s European aspirations and membership perspective seriously. We want to ask the leadership of the EU institutions and EU Member States to grant Ukraine the clear path towards European Union membership. Throughout the last days, EU citizens and governments have shown their full support of Ukraine by defending Ukraine by imposing sanctions on Russia and providing Ukrainians with military, economic, and financial assistance. Ukrainian people deserve to be part of the most peaceful and prosperous club of European nations, which emerged after the devastating world war. Ukrainians have shown that they can give the ultimate sacrifice – their lives for their European future. Maidan of 2004, Euromaidan of 2014, and their heroic fight of 2022 against Russia is a testament to the Ukrainian people’s European identity and readiness to define their future free of tanks, bombs, and Russian dictate. The Georgian people are fully in solidarity with Ukraine in their fight for independence and European aspiration. We strongly believe that the European Union and Member states should treat the Eastern Partnership region’s Trio – Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova, as one whole inseparable region, facing common problems related to Russia’s aggression, occupation, and annexation. Therefore, we hope that the EU will positively respond to Ukraine’s request for membership and, by the same token, open doors for Georgia’s and Moldova’s European perspectives.

Public Nudity Should Be Exempt From Penal Laws!
Bare Body Freedom Activist, and Music Au Naturel Artist and Producer, Ton Dou, believes the responsible at-will practice of wholesome nakedness is an essential part of the natural plan, and the solution to many of the issues humans have had with themselves and each other historically, and continue to perpetuate the problems we struggle with in society everyday. Ton Dou writes the lyrics, sings the songs, talks the talk and walks the walk of intrinsic wholesome nakedness in the light of day for the world to see because he believes it is precisely what the world needs to see if it is ever to be experienced the way nature intended it to be. Ton Dou believes it is not only when we die that we are with the Great Spirit, it is also when we are naked on the land or at sea. He also believes Bare Body Freedom is as natural and significant a human right and life choice as any other, and should never be legislated as criminal behavior, and it is this message he hopes will resonate with every member of society. He needs your help to tell law makers and law enforcers whose jobs are to serve and protect us, that we are not alarmed and / or offended by the mere sight of the bare human body. We are capable of determining whether something is right or wrong with an individual’s behavior, and in this modern day of technology, we are capable of documenting it!He needs your help to tell them that we appreciate and respect the natural human right of others to be responsibly bare for psychological and physical purposes if they choose. We are fully supportive of every member of society who resorts to nature to live a harmless, happier, healthier and more productive life.He needs your help to tell them to use currently existing laws to address lewd and lascivious behavior, when and where it is thought to have occurred whether nudity is involved or not. We believe that an individual’s state of nakedness is not an indication of a crime, and that an assessment of their behavior should be made before any other legal action is taken. He needs your help to tell them the bare human body predates any form of governance, and while human laws govern human conduct, nature's laws determine human appearance. We are very happy to have laws that help to keep us safe, and fully supportive of every official who writes and/or enforces them with this element of nature in mind. He needs your help to tell them, before electing them, that we expect them to fulfill their duties to serve and protect, on behalf of all of humanity, in concert with the laws of nature. We need your vote of confidence, and your commitment to provide for the practice of the most natural of human rights, and to protect it by removing it from penal laws nationwide. If law makers and law enforcement officials provide for the protection of the responsible at will practice of simple nudity, whether publicly or privately, society will eventually be rid of the stigma associated with the bare human body, and the average person will develop greater appreciation for who they are naturally, and more willingness to be respectful of others. If they do not, a natural source for physical and psychological health, happiness, and safety as a result of increased awareness will continue to be undermined for the average person, and nudity penal laws will continue to create and claim victims as the result of the suppression of a natural human right that if practiced would minimize or eliminate these problems naturally. Please sign this petition and be one of the very important people who are helping to send this message to lawmakers about this very important natural human rights cause. Ton Dou Dear United States Legislators, I started a petition on behalf of all of humanity for the most natural of human rights, and genuinely hope it reaches you in good health and great spirit. I would very much like to have your input, and hope you will not hesitate to contact me with any concerns, questions or recommendations you may have. Sincerely,Ton Dou
Petition to National Historic Site of Wounded Knee, INC.
Tim Giago must be stopped! From exploiting the Wounded Knee Sacred Site!
How sad Tim Giago (Mario Gonzales is involved) is promoting the Commercialization of Wounded Knee! I wonder if he has consulted the relatives of those buried there first?....and why would he pay more money for land owned by a white man then the land next to it owned by a tribal member? Smack in the middle of a reservation?...Something wrong here! United Urban Warrior Society will NOT support this!....This is pure exploitation of our Culture and Spirituality “United Urban Warrior Society” doesn’t support this at all and will stand with those who oppose it! and will host a couple rallies this summer at the Wounded Knee Site & Tims news Paper "Native Sun news" We will also promote a boycott of Time Giago and his assimilated news paper The Native Sun News. Please contact them and tell them NO! WAY!: P.O. Box 9344 Rapid City, SD. 57709 Phone: 605.716.5421 Fax: 605.716.5425 Giago: “I signed an agreement to be the sole purchaser of Wounded Knee. The reason is that it has been sitting there idle and doing nothing for over 40 years.” Then he said: “I said the land would be put into trust for all of the tribes of the Great Sioux Nation.” There is MAJOR! Questions here about Giago's true motivation and intent here. If purchase does occur, who is he planning on holding it in trust with? The Federal Government???? When you start looking at this deal it starts to smell. After Wounded Knee '73 old Gildersleve sold this to Czwyczynski for $ 20,000. Now this brings up 2 questions. 1) How the heck did Gildersleve ever get a clear title to those 40 acres anyway? According to the 1868 treaty a Whiteman cannot own land within the boundaries of the reservation! unless he is married to a Native who is an enrolled member, but when she dies it goes to her family NOT the white guy! The Gildersleve illegally sold this land and the Oglala Sioux Tribe should fight this and retain the land! From what I have been told the BIA made this mistake and hasn’t got the balls to fight it! Or being paid off to look the other way! 2). Why is Giago willing to pay $ 3,900,000? That's MILLION dollars for something that sold for $ 20,000. In the 1970’s? Trust me; he's greasing his and Mario’s palm somehow on this deal. Mario Gonzales is involved here we know its about money and this alone draws many red flags! What about the other land owners around this site? What is their input? From what I have been told they are not happy about this deal either. I have been told that Tim Giago has never done anything for the Memorial at Wounded Knee. Back in 1973 he supported Dick Wilson’s regime. Dick & his goons used Tim's paper “Lakota Times" to trash & condemn AIM & murder our people at that time. So, Mr. Giago has blood on his hands. It is well known that Tim Giago has attacked and wrote stories against the American Indian Movement “Blaming them for firebombing his news paper‘s office in Pine Ridge”. He has also spoken against Leonard Peltier, slamming those who would support him. Giago says: he has already created a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization called the National Historic Site of Wounded Knee Inc. There is a Wounded Knee Memorial already there at the site! But because it is associated to The American Indian Movement he will not support it nor recognize it.(Own by the Fire Lighting Tiospaye!) Giago: My attorney is Mario Gonzalez, who is Oglala Lakota, and he will be putting together the trust for all the tribes. Scared of this! Mario has been removed from the Treaty Council and has been involved in several scams to get money from the Black Hills! Giago has also talked with former U.S. Senator Tom Daschle in Washington DC and several friends in New York City to begin fundraising efforts in Washington DC and New York. (This boils my blood! Why would we ask the same Government who massacred our people in cold blood and still honor 18-medals of honor to the soldiers who killed innocent woman and children at this site!) Giago: Can you imagine a really beautiful Holocaust Museum and a big trade pavilion for Indian artisans and craftspeople? They could set up booths year-round and sell their arts and crafts to the tourists. We would have tourists come from all over the world and stay in Rapid City go to the restaurants and hotels, Take buses to Wounded Knee, It would create over 200 jobs For the people down there. It would be also a boost financially to Rapid City, South Dakota,” he says. Are you kidding me? Here is the true motive right here! He said it in his own words! Why would we want to boost Rapid City and not Pine Ridge? A little side note here folks! In all this talk there has been NO mention of those Murdered here! Those Ancestors buried there are not all Ogalala’s they are Miniconju’s and Hunkpapa’s From Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe and Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. Have their relatives been asked about this? And are they involved? They must have a say in this matter! This land should be returned back to the tribe and the land must! If sold be sold at a fair market value…and ANYONE wanting to build a memorial on this sacred ground must have the approval of the families of those buried there and an agreement with landowners nearby! As well as an agreement to include or support the Wounded Knee Take over in 1973! Without predigests! When I first posted that we would not support this I recieved this response from Time Giago! “Hi James. I am sorry you are so angry that I have set out to buy the lands around Wounded Knee. I think this is a time we should all pull together. My feelings about AIM and Leonard Peltier should have nothing to do with what we are trying to accomplish. There is no one who has worked harder to save the Black Hills than Mario Gonzalez. He litigated for the Black Hills in 1980 before the Supreme Court and the Hills would have been assumed purchased if he had not represented several tribes in litigating this action. The preservation of the Wounded Knee site is of historic importance and as I said the land would be put into trust for all of the tribes of the Great Sioux Nation. What is wrong with that? I need your help and not your anger. Tim” In closing Mario Gonzalez did not! Litigate for the Black Hills in 1980 before the Supreme Court! It was the Black Hills Sioux Nation Treaty Council who he at the time he worked for and was asked by the elders to do this! They dismissed him because he was scamming moneys and have since been caught a couple times with his hands in the cookie jar! This is a bad deal! Why would we keep buying our own lands back from the white people at 10 times the value when it still belongs to us as per the 1868 Treaty! Something wrong here people! Think about it! Then to turn around and ask us to chip in when our people and community’s are some of the poorest in the Nation? Hecetu Welo, Mitakuyepi, nis inyan tankunl iyapo! Here is the original post!

Petition to PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF GHANA, Minister of Finance
Resignation of Minister of Finance. (E-Levy)
Basically, if the Minister of Finance believes the country cannot be run without the E-Levy, we believe he is not fit for the job. We believe it would be wise to tender in his resignation and allow his Excellency the President appointment someone else more competent take the reigns of the Ministry of Finance. “THE OATH OF ALLEGIANCEI .................................. do (in the name of the Almighty God swear) (solemnly affirm) that I will bear true faith and allegiance to Republic of Ghana as by law established; that I will uphold the sovereignty and integrity of Ghana; and that I will preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the Republic of Ghana (so help me God).” “THE OFFICIAL OATHI ................................ do (in the name of the Almighty God swear) (solemnly affirm) that I will at all times will and truly serve the Republic of Ghana in the office of ................................ and that I will uphold, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the Republic of Ghana as by law established, (so help me God).” We plead with the honorable minister to stay true to the oaths quoted above and do what is right. Ghana first! It is not mandatory to complete a 4 year term only because one was appointed. One can always step aside for the betterment of the country.
