Urgent Appeal: Sign this Petition to Save Girls Schools in Swat


ASIAN HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION – URGENT APPEALS PROGRAMME

Urgent Appeal Case: AHRC-UAC-005-2009

The Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) seeks for your support for a campaign in support of the female students in the Pakistan-Afghanistan border. The campaign seeks the urgent intervention from the Government of Pakistan to prevent the militants operating in Swat, a border region along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, from destroying the schools where the students study.

SUGGESTED ACTION:

Please write letters to the authorities listed on the link below, urging them to take immediate steps to provide protection to the female students. The authorities must also ensure that no more educational institutions are destroyed by the militants and those that are destroyed already are rebuild.

The AHRC has also written letter to the UN Special Rapporteur on the right to education calling for an intervention in this case.

Those of who want to register their protest at this can go to this link and send out letters to the President, Prime Minister and concerned officials through AHRC’s urgent appeals system.
