Subject: Appeal for support of the vote on the resolution on Sri Lanka



The African organizations of human rights defenders are writing to you to solicit your support for the resolution on Sri Lanka which will be presented by the United States of America in the course of the March 2012 session of the Human Rights Council (HRC).

As a matter of fact, almost three years has past after the end of the military conflict between the government of Sri-Lanka and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), that the government has not fulfilled its commitments towards the population of Sri Lanka. The Secretary General and the Human Rights Council should take credible steps towards establishing justice and accountability for the serious and widespread violations of human rights that took place during the war.

CIVICUS: World Alliance for Citizen Participation was aprt of a fascinating workshop recently, "From Cape to Cairo: The Role of Youth in Democratic Transition”, which brought together passionate activists from far flung countries such as Venezuela, Belarus, Egypt and Zimbabwe, among others, to share their stories, explore ideas with peers and meet with experts on transitional justice mechanisms and tools.

2012 has started already, and the Every Human Has Rights team is getting back into the swing of things. What will this year bring is the big question everyone seems to be asking. 2011 was a year that no one could have predicted; from uprisings with the Arab Spring, to protests such as Occupy Wall Street and other major events, all working towards changing the status quo and the accepted way things work for a new system, and a new international order. We want to know what you think will happen this year, or what it will bring? Are we going to push harder for human rights, for equality and equal opportunities for all? Or the clampdowns that were evident last year worsen to stop outspoken voices and challenges? Read more...
