On Friday the 15th of March 2013, a Swiss girl was raped by several (possibly 7 or 8) Indian men, while her boyfriend was tied to a tree. This act of violence is not standing alone.
Through the past years, there have been many acts of (group) rapes in India. Rape is a direct violation against the human rights, and therefore it should be strictly prohibited.
The Indian government is not taking enough action against it. That’s why the rapes still continue. Therefore the United Nations should make sure the Indian government is going to take action.
Over 60,000 deaths have occurred in Syria since the first and peaceful protests against President Assad began. In addition, Turkey and other neighboring countries, are overfilling with fleeing refugee's who do not want to die in Syria.
Hundreds of thousands of Syrian's have fled the bloodbath in Syria. Children lay dead on the Syrian's streets, women are being raped, and men are being tortured by the Assad regime.

UPDATE: Israeli Cabinet resolution rejects UN vote on Palestine and affirms Jewish rights in all the Land of Israel.
"The Jewish people have natural, historical, legal rights to its homeland with its eternal capital Jerusalem... The State of Israel as the state of the Jewish people has rights and claims to areas that are under dispute in the land of Israel...The Palestinian Authority's one-sided step at the U.N. constitutes a gross violation of the agreements that have been signed with the State of Israel; accordingly, the Government of Israel rejects the U.N. General Assembly decision."

يكشنبه 05 شهریور 1391 ساعت 02:16 |
خبرگزاری هرانا - نسیم سلطانبیگی فعال دانشجویی دانشگاه علامه طباطبایی، جهت اجرای حکم خود به زندان اوین احضار شد.
بنا به گزارش جرس، این فعال دانشجویی طیف چپ، در نهم آذرماه ۸۹ از سوی شعبه ۱۵ دادگاه انقلاب به شش سال حبس تعزیری محکوم شد. این حکم شامل ۳ سال حبس تعزیری به اتهام "اقدام علیه امنیت ملی" و یک سال به علت "تبلیغ علیه نظام" است و دو سال حکم تعلیقی نیز از سال ۸۵ به آن اضافه شده است.
این حکم سپس با اعتراض وی به دادگاه تجدیدنظر ارسال شده بود.
نسیم سلطانبیگی از جمله دانشجویان طیف چپ است که در آذرماه ۱۳۸۶ در جریان دستگیری گسترده این دانشجویان بازداشت و مدت ۵۶ روز را در زندان اوین بند ۲۰۹ سپری کرده و با قرار وثیقه ۵۰ میلیون تومان آزاد شده بود. وی همچنین در تجمع فعالین جنبش زنان در ۲۲ خرداد ماه سال ۱۳۸۵ بازداشت و به دو سال حبس تعلیقی محکوم شده بود.
The United States has been a country for 235 years and 209 of these years the country has spent at war. Sign this petition to call for an end to war.
War helps the US procure resources and create jobs but can destroy local economies and force other countries to adopt an American lifestyle which requires countries to support large scale industrial farming and production for export at the expense of small land owners and producers and social services. This leads to famine and debt enslavement.
On July 7th 2012, Libya held its first democratic election in 60 years. In response The Financial Times reported on July 11th, that Libya still lacks the resources to reconstruct the damages of the war, to ensure a smooth transition between the two governments.
Sherif Salem, Senior VP at Invest AD stated that "Even a little investment in infrastructure could go a long way to improving living conditions, and creating jobs." This petition is sponsered by the organization Project Democracy as a post-war effort to get Libya back on its feet and create stability in the region.
In recent reports, we are seeing the Iraqi forces are increasing pressure the residents and treating them very inhumanely.
The Iraqi forces prevented the injured and disabled from taking their daily necessities to Camp Liberty. They prevented workers from entering for repairs to sanitary services. Repair or replacing damaged air conditioners is prevented. Residents are not allowed to bring working air conditioners from Camp Ashraf and to replace them. Despite Iraqi government's repeated promises, it continues not to replace or repair them.
These limitations are while the MOU signed between the Iraqi government and the UN on December 25, 2011, states: "It allows residents to enter into bilateral agreements with contractors to provide living necessities and requirements, such as water, food, communications, cleaning, and maintenance and reconstruction equipments at their own cost".
We humans are closer to extinction that we all realize or want to acknowledge, we each have an obligation to preserve our species not destroy it, we owe it to ourselves and the generations to follow.
We may look different, sound different, and have different beliefs from one another but it does not negate the fact that we are all the same species and citizens of this world.
It is imperative that we work quickly and together despite any differences to preserve humanity.
I am asking all leaders and individuals to make a commitment to work towards uniting the people of this world.

Three former U.S. Presidents have denied children their basic human rights, and Obama will too unless we demand action. The CRC, The Convention on The Rights of the Child, is an international treaty that has been ratiﬁed by every country on Earth except the U.S. and Somalia. The CRC can change childrenʼs lives by ﬁnally giving our children their basic human rights.
These two children are paying for this:
Cristian Fernandez is a 12-year-old boy who faces life in prison. http://www.change.org/petitions/reverse-decision-to-try-12-yo-cristian-fernandez-as-an-adult
This 6 year old Texan boy was hospitalized after a school paddling. http://weatherforddemocrat.com/local/x980632247/School-parent-OK-with-paddling
Thousands of children in America suffer in similar ways! But Obama has the power to stop this by ratifying the CRC!
What does the CRC guarantee American children?
•The right to play.
•The right to be safe.
•The right to practice the religion of their choice.
•The right to an education without physical punishment.
•The right to be tried as a child, and not sentenced to life in prison without parole.
In 1995, President Clinton signed the CRC, but he didnʼt send it to the Senate. It is time for our President to take real action. Obama says heʼs committed to improving the lives of our children. He says he values their well-being. He says itʼs an embarrassment that the U.S hasn't ratiﬁed the CRC.
Enough talk, Mr. President. It’s time for action!
Over 200 non-proﬁts support the CRC, yet a small group of people are afraid of children having rights. They think parents should have 'fundamental rightsʼ over their children, to include the fundamental right to be criminally negligent parents.
. Here are a few of the crimes that will start to disappear:
. Child beatings occur in schools in 19 states more than 200,000 times a year.
. Approximately 6 million cases of child abuse go unreported annually.
. At least 200,000 children are sexually trafﬁcked across the U.S. annually.
. The U.S. is the only country on earth to imprison children for life without parole.
. America is the worst offender of child abuse in the Industrialized World.
It is time to end the hypocrisy, and give children their rights. It is time for our President to do the right thing.

In an attempt to balance perspectives on gender-related conflict, in October 2000, the United Nations' Security Council adopted Resolution S/RES/1325. This resolution aims to increase participation of women in conflict resolution and humanitarian response.
*At the turn of the 20th century, 5% of war casualties were civilians
*In World War I, 15% were civilians
*In World War II, 65% were civilian
*By the mid-nineties, 75% of war deaths were civilians
*Today, 90% of the human war toll are civilians--the majority of these victims are women and children
UN resolution 1325 calls on all parties to conflict to take special measures to protect women and girls from gender-based violence, particularly rape and other forms of sexual abuse, in situations of armed conflict.
The United States is currently taking steps to create a National Action Plan to realize the resolution's goals.
The MINUSTAH, well known as The United Nations Stabilisation Mission In Haiti, has been in operation since 2004. A year of political crisis, violence and corruption, led to the resignation of the President Jean Bertrand Aristide. But now they are seen like a threat to the human rights, and also to the Haitian People.
"Haiti is in great danger because among others of Cholera, of the poverty the marginalization and of the exploitation of its people " said the Nobel Peace Argentin Adolfo Pérez Esquivel in an interview with the Latino channel TeleSur.
Numerous incidents of rape and other forms of violence have been reported by victims of MINUSTAH... from the 16 years old girl in 2006 to the Haitian teenager (male) in 2011.
Three Nobel Peace, led by the Nobel Adolfo Pérez Esquivel from Argentine, hundreds of NGOs, legislators and personalities of more than forty countries sent to the Secretary General a letter released yesterday in which they requested the withdrawal of international troops of Haiti.
Join the fight if you believe in Peace and want to change the actual situation of Haiti.
13. Save Hadi
Re: Asylum case of Mr Hadi Abdollahian holder of the UNHCR registration no 385-11C04414, reference number 2011/PLN/01217, national of Iran, born on 09/03/1991.
Dear UNHCR officer,
As a human rights activist, I am writing to express my deepest concerns regarding the status of the above-named asylum seeker whose application is currently under consideration in Turkey while he is waiting for his substantive interview to take place.
Whilst in Iran, due to his, and his father’s activities against the current regime, Hadi has been subject to such various ill-treatments as torture, rape, imprisonment and other forms of discriminatory behaviours, for which visual and medical evidences are available.
Hadi was the designer of two well-known websites both of which were later used to spread anti-regime materials. Evidence is accordingly available on the internet and shall be submitted to your office, too. Mr Abdollahian’s father, who was a senior airforce pilot during the previous regime of Iran, was killed in a suspicious road incident in Iran in 2008 following which the authorities refused to further pursue the case.
A brief summary of one of the events Hadi has be gone through would be as follows:
After the death his father, Hadi was contacted by the Intelligent Services agents, accused to be doing what his father was doing, and to be a Pan Azeri, and was thus forced to cooperate with them. During a meeting, he was told that those responsible for his father’s death will only be found if he accepts the cooperation. He was thereby forced by the agents to cooperate in Computer and IT related matters. Following the 2009 election and the Green Movement in Iran, and after observing what was being done to people, he decided to upload the clips taken from the event onto the internet, that is, to one of his well-known websites. This was action was perceived by the agents of the regime, upon which he gets summoned to the Islamic Revolutionary Court of Tabriz, East Azerbaijan. Once he returns home from a short holiday, he gets beaten up very badly in front of their house by several members of the Basij force, following which he makes a note on his website describing the event. The next day, he gets arrested and blindfolded, and was taken to place that he describes as a “smelly basement”, where he was severely tortured, hit with pipes and thick sticks, sexually raped, abused, humiliated, and said that the next time he will end up dead. He is thereafter blindfolded again, and thrown out of a car in the countryside of his city, Ahar.
As a result of the aforementioned events, and various other incidents faced by Hadi, he is now suffering from severe Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), insomnia, nightmares, and is highly suicidal. He is also suffering from various physical difficulties such as constant backaches, headaches, heartburns, and is in serious need of medical investigation, hospitalisation and treatment.
In view of the proposal for Palestine to obtain membership in the United Nations and hence be fully recognized as an independent state, we are circulating this petition to every Mauritians, be it the young as well as the elder people. We do, hereby, humbly request you to fill in your required details and by the beginning of next week; we will send it to the US Embassy of Mauritius, with a letter attached.
We wish to inform you that we are not affiliated to any political parties. We are doing this solely because these people are living as strangers in their own land. Our aim is to create awareness and despite being far from them, we are doing what we can for them. The way they are being treated is really inhuman when in fact, they are human beings like anyone of us and they have their rights as free people.
We take this opportunity to thank you all very much in anticipation for your participation.

NUS must support ending the occupation of Palestine.
In the past few months Bashar Al Assad, the president of Syria, has used his country’s military against his own citizens. Furthermore, he has ordered for a mass execution of those who have been rebelling against his dictatorship.
Syria is not the only country that is being pressurized for the reforms and changes in its governing practices. Some other conflicts occurring in the same region include Hosni Mubarak’s removal from Egypt, as well as the rebellious activities, in Libya, Bahrain, and Yemen, following this event. Libya, currently under pressure through NATO attacks and other sanctions, imposed on the Gaddafi regime to stop innocent killings and brutality.
In Syria the current ruling government is Shia Islam whereas the majority of the people are from Sunni Islam. Assad has kept the country under a state of emergency since 1963, suspending the constitution and overruling many human rights. Broadcasting, foreign media and other sources of communication are being strictly monitored in order to prevent rebel activity. Assad has murdered thousands of protestors and there is little known information concerning the numbers still suffering from his brutality.
Syria’s ruling Shia government claims to have an Islamic constitution and leadership. According to any Shia law, mostly followed through the first Imam (leadership position in Shia Islam), and the preaching’s of Holy Prophet Muhammad (the prophet of Islam and the last messenger of God), killing an unarmed civilian is against the law and is strictly condemned by previous Imams. Not only condemned but many examples have been left behind by them as to how they dealt with revolts and rebellions without killing any innocent civilian.
Assad’s acts have not condemned by any religious cleric nor has any fatwa (a legal pronouncement in Islam, issued by a religious law specialist on a specific issue) been passed by the supreme leaders of Shia Islam. A list of previous fatwas passed by religious clerics can be viewed at the following link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fatwas. One example listed here is that of the famous fatwa to kill Salman Rushdie due to blasphemy against the prophet of Islam. Someone who has not been ruling according the proper laws of Islam, although he may claim to be doing so, is a blasphemy against the teachings of prophet of Islam and a misrepresentation of the religion.
The killing of protestors in Bahrain has been recognized by many Shia leaders and clerics, since the majority population of Bahrain is Shia Muslims ruled by a Sunni Government, but in contrast to Syria the ruling government is Shia Muslim in a Sunni dominating population. In taking a broader look at these countries current governmental situations, it is not religion that rules, but rather dominating and power-hungry dictators.
On a positive note, unlike Syria, Bahrain’s situation is under control and the media was given permission to carry out independent news reporting. In Syria it has been more than a few months and thousands have been executed without any valid reason, except for the sole purpose of protecting the ruling government.
It is mentioned in the Holy Quran (the holy book in Islam claimed to be God’s word) that killing any innocent person is equal to killing the whole of mankind. (5:32): “For that cause we decreed for the Children of Israel that whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and who so saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs (of Allah's Sovereignty), but afterwards lo! Many of them became prodigals in the earth.”
In September 2011, the Palestinian Authority - which has recently merged and reconciled with the terrorist group, Hamas - plans to seek unilateral recognition of a Palestinian State based on the 1949 Armistice Lines at the United Nations.
Such a unilateral declaration of Palestinian statehood based on these borders will render Israel defenseless against the possibility of future conflicts with its Arab neighbors. Additionally, such a declaration of statehood and possible recognition by the United Nations will contradict the Oslo Accords, to which both Israel and the Palestinian Authority are bound.
The only way to establish a durable, secure peace between Israel and the Palestinian Authority - and thus be the basis for the legitimate formation of a Palestinian State - is through direct bilateral negotiations between the leaders of Israel and the Palestinian Authority; where the issues of finalized borders, the recognition of Israel as the Jewish State, security, Palestinian refugees and the status of Jerusalem will be resolved.
To ignore the peace process and unilaterally declare a Palestinian State would prolong the conflict and exacerbate and lend credence to hostilities.
Currently, Israel is seeking support from countries around the world to support the peace process and stop this ghastly resolution from being passed. Trinidad & Tobago has never taken an official position on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and has historically abstained from voting in any resolution at the United Nations General Assembly regarding this issue. However, with the new Peoples Partnership government in power, it is unclear whether Trinidad & Tobago will continue in this tradition, and so, this petition was started so that the foreign policy of abstaining will continue - or, if need be, Trinidad & Tobago should take the moral high-road and vote against any resolution at the United Nations General Assembly which recognizes the unilateral establishment of a Palestinian state outside of the peace process and negotiations.
Please note: This petition is not against the formation of a Palestinian state; rather, it is against the formation of a Palestinian state founded outside of the legally-binding peace process and outside of direct negotiations.
Navi Pillay, a former South Africa High Court Judge, is the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. She will visit Australia in May.
This follows several years of criticism regarding Australia’s poor human rights record and last year’s visit to Geneva by Aboriginal elders who raised the Northern Territory Intervention with the Committee for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
The Northern Territory Intervention imposed in June 2007, without consultation or the consent of Aboriginal people, continues to be a source of grave injustice. It has overridden the rights of the people, placed their culture and languages in jeopardy while removing their control over their land and communities.
The legislation passed by Parliament in June 2010, Social Security and Other Legislation Amendment (Welfare Reform and Reinstatement of the Racial Discrimination Act) Bill 2009, has entrenched discrimination in Australian law and ensured that the Racial Discrimination Act, reinstated on 31 December 2010, is unable to protect Aboriginal people from measures that discriminate against them.
The UN Committee for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) has recommended to the Australian Government that legislative amendments be made to protect and restore the rights of Northern Territory Aboriginal people including provisions to ensure the Racial Discrimination Act overrides other legislation which may be discriminatory.
You can help by signing this letter requesting Navi Pillay to address these issues with the Government, urging them to turn around the blatant human rights violations embedded in the Northern Territory Intervention.
The closing date for signatures is the 7th May 2011.
In 2006 the Human Rights Council began reviewing the human rights record of all 192 members of the UN as part of the new Universal Periodic Review (UPR) process. This involves a systematic peer review of all types of human rights in all countries belonging to the UN every four years. The initial review of all countries will be completed in 2011.
On 27 January 2011 Australia was reviewed by a Working Group of the Human Rights Council. Thirty of the 145 recommendations for Australia to improve human rights referred directly to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Many other recommendations will also impact on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Australia has yet to accept or reject any recommendations choosing instead, to formally respond at the June 2011 session of the Human Rights Council.
This is an opportunity for us as Australians to hold our Government accountable to the international human rights standards accepted by the rest of the world.
Dear friends and supporters of the Tunisian Cultural Center, In this revolution of freedom and democracy, Tunisia should expand her culture all over the world.

HARD COPY OF THIS EXACT TEXT CAN BE FOUND AT www.kaURna.webs.com I encourage all Australian residents to download the PDF hardcopy, collect a few signatures (no address needed) and return as per the PDF. There is NO citizenship requirements to sign the hardcopy or electronic petition, however Australia's Parliament won't accept the electronic format, only hardcopy.
The intent to to stop enforced segregation of harms which could take a victim their entire adult life or well over 30 years to progress through the civil courts or otherwise logistically impossible for one person to deal with.
Stalking and assault and torture and surgery without legal authority are all unlawful in Australia, they all carry the potential of lengthy penal sentencing under criminal law, however Australian legislation has one huge loophole that forces a victim of these crimes to prosecute each single incident separately under civil or common law (state) or human rights treaties (federal or High court). That is if you are stalked by say 20 persons and police refuse to investigate each one and each of the 20 individuals assault you in separate incidents you have to prosecute each separately as unconnected events despite evidence that strongly suggests they are connected as one crime. Unlike the treatment of defamation, there is no allowance to deem multiple assaults as one stalking event that generates many incidents.
Point TWO (2):
The intent is to remove the expectation that only an "expert" is be legally entitled to define the existence of a foreign item a radiology film. Presently you must have a signed letter from a medical practitioner to say you have a hatchet poking out of your head if you want it removed, that is to say in the event that you do have a hatchet poking out of your head which you also want removed.
Jane is being stalked by many persons, most are strangers to her or persons she knows but is unaware they are the stalkers. The stalkers have caused Jane to be considerably surgically raped the evidence is in radiology diagnostic film funded by Medicare Australia between 2005 and 2010 inclusive. The film has been falsely interpreted on paper omitting to describe foreign items inside Jane that are very clearly seen in the film. The stalkers have falsely defamed Jane. The question of did the surgical rape of defamation come first is insignificant in the presence of the fact that both are considerably criminal, more so if there was premeditation and where both exist concurrently and begun around the same period of time then clearly there was premeditation.
The "choice" to investigate or not investigate a crime is removed as an option for a law enforcement official. That Federal police refuse to investigate these crimes against the Commonwealth of Australia then there is clear evidence that police are amongst the stalkers. Police should seen in legislation in a different light from the rest of us insomuch as they should have less room for error as they have more trust. Police should never be allowed to refuse to investigate any crime. It should not be up to police to choose what crime they want to investigate because that leaves individual police department "law enforcement" "public officials" open to be contracted by any third party as tools of stalkers. Under the present system of Australia police governance career criminals must presently be employed as senior police and aspiring cadets and everywhere in-between. Law enforcement officers are not necessarily police officers.
No land-line telephone number should be allowed to be blocked - as a society of humans who are defined as the superior race on earth because we are able to speak then we MUST all have full confidence in the ability to identify a person we encounter through verbal communication. If someone wants to preserve their telephone privacy they can call on a public phone. In these days of technology awareness rampant identity theft and sophisticated electronic crimes and the expectation that all government public officials must be accountable under statute, public official anonymity is totally unacceptable.
In 2011 just about every commonwealth of Australia department land-line telephone has it's number blocked from the persons they are calling, they expect you to divulge personal information under these circumstances.
The human rights of Haitians are being violated by the United Nations peacekeeping forces in Haiti. Peacekeepers are raping and murdering Haitian citizens, and denying them access to the political processes of their own country.
The United States and President Obama should intervene in Haiti now to restore order and to make certain that Haitians are entitled to their full human rights as dictated by the UN Declaration of Human Rights.
Since May 14 1947 Israel has continued to ignore all of UN resolutions on the rights of Palestinians.
In Kashmir since 1989 more than 70,000 casualties and 8,000 + documented enforced disappearances have occurred all in the guise of draconian laws such as the Armed Forces Special Powers Act, AFSPA, which grants Indian paramilitary and police forces license to detain, shoot, and torture at will with virtual protection from being prosecuted by civilian courts and international bodies.
Yet, the international community and its media remains silent on documented civilian killings as well as fake encounter killings. The murders of several Kashmiri youth this past month by security forces clearly exhibits the widespread and systematic practice of shoot-to-kill strategies conducted by the state security apparatuses of India. Soldiers and state security forces are able to use bullets to combat stones and slogans under the protection of Indian security legislation.
Please help join the people from all over the world to put an end to this apathy. “ I Protest” is one such group that believes in Human Rights and Dignity for all. Let the powers to be know that you stand against Human Right Violations and will not be a party to it. Not on our watch today or ever… We as inhabitants of this world will not rest till Human Dignity is respected and honored everywhere. We refuse to be a silenced majority and demand the Government of India to stop and urge our respective representatives to act on our behalf and put an end to such outrageous crimes…please sign and pass on this petition to everyone you know. Every signature counts. Say NO TO HUMAN RIGHT VIOLATIONS.
1.4 billion people live on less than $1 a day. Each year, there are between 190 million and 330 million cases of malaria worldwide and kills nearly one million people annually. More than half a million mothers in developing countries die in childbirth or from pregnancy complications every year.
These are just a few of the issues that are addressed by the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. In 2000, 181 world leaders gathered and committed themselves to the most comprehensive set of objectives ever set to address extreme poverty in its many forms. The commitment has been made, we just need them to live up to it. This September, world leaders are meeting again to discuss the progress and future steps of the Millennium Development Goals. In the past 10 years, not enough has changed.
Let President Obama know you support his commitment to these goals when he addresses the United Nations in September.

As you properly know, there is an undemokratic dictatorship in Thailand, which will not let democracy come up. Many innocent people dying these days in the streets of Bangkok.
And the government reject to stop the shooting, and rather will take the responsibility for all their action, they also ignore and reject any compromise and appointment with the political opposition.
As you can see in all the independent international news, blogs, boards and You tube as well, there is enough proof an evidence for you to take some action.
War results in the harm and even death of innocent people. There is no circumstance that makes hurting the innocent allowable.
Billions of dollars are spent in maintaining so called "defense forces", without war that money could go into a whole number of things including education and medical research.
The practice of slavery has plagued the human species for over 5,000 years. Yet here in the 21st century, slavery is more prevalent than ever before with an estimated 27 million people enslaved worldwide.
Even in the U.S slavery continues today. The U.S government estimates 14000-18000 people are trafficked into the U.S annually and put into some form of modern day slavery.
Professor James Anaya, United Nations Human Rights Rapporteur, will be visiting Australia during the second half of August.
After his visit, he will be providing the UN Human Rights Council with a report on his assessment of human rights in Australia. The Australian government will be expected to respond.
This is a unique opportunity for us to highlight our concerns about the government's treatment of Aboriginal Australians.
Our government is now planning to reinstate the Racial Discrimination Act in the Northern Territory which we welcome, but we are concerned that their proposed changes will still not comply adequately human rights principles.
Our government is conducting inadequate consultations with a view to ensuring Aboriginal people accept the imposition of 'special measures' on those living in the 73 prescribed areas of the Northern Territory.
Under human rights principles people have the right to free, prior and informed consent in relation to any such measures. The extent to which our government's consultation process constitutes such consent is highly dubious.
Help us ensure that Professor Anaya addresses our concerns by adding your name to this open letter.
