EUROPE MUST WITHDRAW FROM DURBAN 2
EUROPE MUST WITHDRAW FROM DURBAN 2 The NGO Freedom of Expression (FOE) urges Europe, countries of human rights, not to endorse by its presence the Durban Review Conference, known as Durban 2, which must occur in Geneva next April . The attacks that are happening behind the scenes against the values of their Republics and Kingdoms are unacceptable. The working paper of this conference is currently a text violently anti-Western countries, claiming: - The censorship and muzzling of freedom of expression, - Opened criticism of our liberal societies, - The single out of a one State, Israel, - Promoting sexists theories against women, - The promotion of communitarianism, - To mention only the transatlantic slave trade, and not the Muslim Trans-Saharan trade, - To refuse to condemn States that practice discrimination or repression in their own society. FOE wishes to associate itself with all countries (Canada, USA, Israel, Italy), all international institutions and all NGOs working on Human Rights who refuse to participate in this Geneva conference. These states and NGOs show that they want to defend the principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which we just celebrated 60 years. The Preparatory Committee set up to finalize the draft declaration realized in fact a real diversion and instrumentalization of the concept of Defense of Human Rights. We solemnly and respectfully urge the European governments to respect the red lines defined by the French President Nicolas Sarkozy in 2008. We strongly urge the European Union Kings and Queens, Presidents and Prime Ministers to act so that their will not endorse this masquerade. EUROPE MUST OFFICIALLY WITHDRAW FROM DURBAN 2 (THE GENEVA CONFERENCE)!
