• End oppressive Mandatory dress code and exile murderous government in IRAN #MahsaAmini
    Thousands of innocent lives have been massacred for simply speaking and having an opinion. In what has been called "an act of violence unprecedented in Iranian history" the Iranian government summarily, extrajudicially, and secretly executed thousands of political prisoners held in Iranian jails in the summer of 1988. Values of tolerance, equality and respect can help reduce friction within society. Putting human rights ideas into practice can helps us create the kind of society we want to live in. In recent decades, there has been a tremendous growth in how we think about and apply human rights ideas. This has had many positive results - knowledge about human rights can empower individuals and offer solutions for specific problems. Human rights are an important part of how people interact with others at all levels in society - in the family, the community, schools, the workplace, in politics and in international relations. It is vital therefore that people everywhere should strive to understand what human rights are. When people better understand human rights, it is easier for them to promote justice and the well-being of society. A person's human rights cannot be taken away. In its final Article, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that no State, group or person '[has] any right to engage in any activity or to perform any act aimed at the destruction of any of the rights and freedoms set forth herein'. Over the past 10 days, the Iranian regime has responded to demonstrations with deadly force, censored unfavourable media narratives, prosecuted those who spread ‘rumours’ about the protests, and hindered people’s access to vital information online. Blocking social media platforms and disrupting internet and mobile service during times of social unrest is a classic authoritarian tactic. In its desperate bid to retain power, this undemocratic regime clearly has no compunction about denying its citizens their fundamental liberties and their very lives. “We condemn, in the strongest terms, the Iranian regime’s escalating repression of its people, and we call on other governments to stand with these courageous protesters and hold Iranian officials to account for their abuses. If the cause of democracy and human rights is to prevail in Iran, democratic countries and organizations around the world must support Iranians in their quest for freedom from a tyrannical theocracy. Instead of meeting the needs of its own people, the Iranian regime has chosen to spend enormous amounts of its money and resources to support the Assad regime [Syrian President Bashar al-Assad] as well as its militant proxies around the world, and to pursue the development of weapons of mass destruction,” Sherman added. Instead of investing in its people, Iran continues to restrain their vast potential through censorship, oppression and severe limitations on their social, political and even academic freedom. Defending human rights activists has been called "one of the riskiest jobs in Iran",[180] and harassment and imprisonment of human rights lawyers is an effective way of intimidating dissidents. As of June 2020, nine human rights attorneys have been arrested in Iran since 2018, and at least five of them are still in prison, according to the Center for Human Rights in Iran.[181] As of 2018, several prominent human rights lawyers were imprisoned. Attorney Mohammad Najafi faced "national-security charges—and potentially years in prison"—for publicly accusing the IRI government of "covered up the true cause of the jailhouse death of his client, a young protester involved in the recent economic demonstrations, according to the Center for Human Rights in Iran. Abdolfattah Soltani, who won the Nuremberg International Human Rights Award, in 2009, served time in prion in 2005 and 2009 and was sentenced to 18-year prison sentence in 2012 "for talking to the press about his clients’ cases and co-founding the Defenders of Human Rights Centre.

  • Save the Ark Aid Street Mission & First Baptist Church
    All of this because of one anonymous complaint. For those who may not belong to a faith community but are concerned about what they see on our streets, on Richmond Row, in our downtown core right now, we implore you to show your support. We will have a catastrophe this winter if churches are not allowed to partner with the Ark or other service providers to welcome people in out of the cold, to assemble, to be fed, to use a washroom, to get showered. We will fight this. We are calling on people of London; people of faith, people of good will, people of no faith, people who care about the plight of the unhoused across the city to join us in this fight. We cannot address the serious crises we are in in the city with homelessness if we do not work together.

  • Stop Clearcutting, Slash Burns and Pesticide Sprays Near Drinking Water Sources on the Oregon Coast
    WHEREAS, there is a growing water shortage, especially in the summers, caused by climate change, increased demand and accelerated forest clearcutting; WHEREAS, water quality has declined, and in some areas, can require an unsafe amount of chemical additives and treatments to meet minimum Oregon Health Authority standards; WHEREAS, buffer zones are inadequate to address the fact that the air we breathe and the water we drink are compromised by slash burning and pesticide spraying; WHEREAS, government agencies have failed to adequately protect community watersheds and air quality, even in the face of unprecedented climate change and industrial forest clearcutting; ACCORDINGLY, Petitioners want accountability for the above, want no more logging operations and no more pesticide use in drinking watersheds across all land ownership in the North Oregon Coast, and want an end to pesticide applications near where people live and recreate. FURTHERMORE, Petitioners seek independent health studies and unbiased analyses of the water people in the area drink and the air everyone breathes.

    Changes need to happen quickly because we will not step down until our needs are fulfilled. We all have loved ones in there and the requests are not impossible. Each year inmates’ rights are being violated more and more. Study shows that one reform to reduce recidivism is socialization. These inmates are only allowed out to dayroom for 3 hours a day. Not to mention there are no in person visits still to this day and its not because of COVID because all prisons are now doing in person visits. Also, icare packages were the cheapest way of our loved ones to receive commissary, now they are not even allowed that. Now they are forced to order from canteen where everything is overpriced leaving inmates with no choice but to eat the food there which majority of the time is not a decent hot meal. They are served one hot meal a day and often times served expired food. The medical is not organized our loved ones are putting in requests for medical attention and are not being seen in a timely manner. Monterey County Jail and Wellpath have already been sued for this particular reason. These are just a few of the many things that are wrong at the jail. Monterey County Jail… DO BETTER!
