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.

The Metrofax service is very convenient in this regard, since it is integrated with your email, and allows you to email up to 1000 pages per month for about $10.00.

Please also feel free to copy the quotations and URLs, above, of expert opinions, supporting our claims of widespread corruption of the justice system in Los Angeles County, California, which the United States is refusing to address for over a decade.

According the UPR protocol, the US State Department was supposed to discuss with stakeholders, who filed reports with the United Nations as part of the 2010 UPR of the United States, the claims of Human Rights violations by the US government, prior to the August 2010 deadline for a response on the reports by the US State Department.  However, the US State Department refuses to even acknowledge receipt of the reports.

Please also include in your messages any possible evidence that US authorities - in particular US law enforcement were fully aware of the complaints, and refused to take action. For example, you may copy the US Marshal Service, FBI, US Dept of Justice, and others. However, there is no significance at all to any conduct of state law enforcement agencies in this matter - unless they are the subject of alleged corruption.

From this date to November 2010, we believe that efforts should be focused on lobbying certain nations, listed in the "Road Ahead", 
[2] linked below, to affect a UPR report calling upon the US to abide by ratified international law - the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Any help that you could provide in advising how to lobby those nations, or generate more international signatures on the petition to free Richard Fine,
[3] linked below, would be gratefully accepted.
