Please take action on this petition

Allies of ours - Amnesty International amongst lots of others - have launched a global petition in support of the UN Human Rights Council's use of Special Procedures. To sum it up, Special Procedures encompass the appointment of investigators, experts, and working groups to monitor, and report on, human rights abuses around the world. These procedures provide the eyes and ears of UN's Human Rights Council, and without them, atrocities could take place and no one might know about it.

The UN is reviewing procedures for appointing these special independent experts and some countries are taking the opportunity to lobby AGAINST their very existence. That's why we need to fight back! Please take a moment, and sign the petition here. The victims of human rights violations around the world need our support.
