The death of Nelson Mandela 2 days ago, should remind us all of the need to fight for our rights, no matter how long it takes, and whatever the State chooses to do, to punish those who disagree with their 'illegal systems' until they give in and admit they're wrong. See the UN tribute at http://www.ohchr.org/EN/Pages/WelcomePage.aspx
It's also just another 3 days from the 65th Anniversary of the date when the General Assembly sat down in Paris to agree the final wording of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which they 'proclaimed' as The International Bill of Human Rights.
So we need to ask our politicians to explain how long they expect to get away with ignoring the principles set down in The Declaration itself. You can do that by spreading the word about this petition.
