STOP Killing Somali Refugees in South Africa!

511 Signatures Goal: 5,000

On May 31st 2013, a Somali Man was brutally killed by a mob of South Africans. This is not the first time this has happened in South Africa. Mistreatment of Somali Refugees as well as other foreign Nationals have taken place dozens if not hundreds of times over the past 10yrs. This time, we the Somali Community in Minnesota and also Somali Communities Worldwide have gathered to take a firm stand against these Crimes against Humanity. "Somali shopkeeper Abdi Ahmed died in the worst way imaginable, according to his brother Issa, who stumbled upon his dying brother shortly after they were attacked by a mob last week in the South African city of Port Elizabeth. "His body was mutilated," he says. "There were wounds from knives, stones, and machetes." He says, "you would not think he was killed by human beings. My brother was killed by animals; he looked as if he was eaten by a hyena, not human beings." We have taken steps to inform elected Officials here in Minnesota and in Washington D.C. of the Xenophobia taking place in South Africa. This is not only a Somali Issue any longer. This is a Human Rights Issue and such we are asking you to stand with us in being a part of this online petition so that we can let our Elected Officials in the United States and the Officials in the South Africa Government know that we will not stand by while Crimes against Humanity continue to happen in that Country. Please sign this petition and share with Everyone in your Social Circles, be it Facebook, Twitter or via Email. Sincerely, The Somali Community in Minnesota 06/03/2013
