Let Aaron Stay in Norway
Petition Background (Preamble):
For the first time in history, Norwegian authorities changed the terms of immigration targeting a specific group of refugees whose homeland situation had not changed. In addition, the current policy clearly opposes the recommendations of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
Norwegian authorities presently consider Palestinian territories to be safe enough for refugees to return. Simultaneously a number of factors indicate the opposite. First, Palestinian refugees have their own memories and experiences that can easily be backed up by witness descriptions, mainstream news media and general knowledge about the area.
Second, Norwegian authorities discourage Norwegians to travel to these areas (http://www.norway.org.ps/Norsk/Reiserad/). Third, international human rights organizations criticize Palestinian authorities for disregarding human rights.
Hence, we, the undersigned, would like to hereby demand the authorities to grant a refugee status or a humanitarian protection to Aaron and let him stay in Norway!
