Why was this blog created?

All further in-house efforts to further justice in the US justice system are futile. These efforts are only worthwhile to the degree that they provide additional documentation of the widespread corruption of the US justice system.

Our focus must be on the international community.

In November 2010 the United Nations will review for the first time ever the Human Rights record of the United States. Corruption of the justice system was the core of reports filed by Human Rights Alert and others for the April 2010 deadline.

In August 2010 the US State Department is scheduled to respond on the reports, and in November 2010 the UN will conduct the review session and issue the report, and set goals, which the US would be asked to reach between 2010 and the next scheduled review in 2014.

Between now and November 2010, we must focus on informing and lobbying the nations that sit on the review panel, to ensure that the most effective report is issued.

This blog was created in hope that the French Government would support a UN UPR report that calls upon the US federal government to provide equal protection under the law to all who reside in the United States.

Please call or write your elected representatives. Please ask that the French Government support in November 2010 the issuance of a UPR report by the United Nations, which calls upon the US government to abide by its duties and responsibilities pursuant to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

S'il vous plaît appelez ou écrivez vos représentants élus. S'il vous plaît demander que le soutien du gouvernement français en Novembre 2010, la publication d'un rapport par les Nations Unies, qui invite le gouvernement américain à respecter ses obligations et responsabilités en vertu de la Déclaration universelle des droits de l'homme.

10-07-04 Droits de l'Homme - Affectation directe de la communauté universelle de l'homme

Human Rights - Direct Concern of the Universal Human Community

 Perhaps there is a need to reiterate the basic principle spearheaded by Eleanor Roosevelt, then US Ambassador to the United Nations: The Human Rights conditions of the people of any nation are not the private domain of the government of that nation. Instead, it is the direct concern of the universal human community.  Therefore, the proposal, again copied below, suggested that Human Rights organizations in the US define a short list of focused goals, and do their best to present such goals to the international community.

Moreover,  based on other nations' submissions to the November 2010 review of Human Rights in the  US, that issues that would likely feature most prominently in the November 2010 report by the United Nations are none of those which were highlighted in the proposal, copied below. 

Instead - the United Nations Human Rights Council report would most likely focus on the criminal justice system in the United States:

  • Unreasonable number of those imprisoned - the US holds 5% of world population, while holding 25% of world's prisoners, 
  • Conditions in the prisons - California prisons led to the appointment of a Human Rights Overseer even by the US Courts. 
  • Use of the death penalty, and its excesses,
  • The treatment of minorities by the US criminal justice system.
In short - Human Rights Alert (NGO) again calls upon US Human Rights stakeholders to join in, define a short list of focused lobbying themes, and likewise - define the best nations, organizations, and individuals to target in such lobbying.
It is a historic first -
The November 2010 Universal Periodic Review of Human Rights in the United States by the Human Rights Council of the United Nations.
