Il a par ailleurs annoncé des mesures urgentes qui devraient être prises pour traiter le phénomène de l’afflux d’un grand nombre de migrants irréguliers subsahariens en Tunisie. Étant donné que la Tunisie par l’article 230 du code pénal tunisien, punis « jusqu’à trois ans de prison pour un rapport sexuel entre adultes consentants de même sexe et l’impossibilité de changement de statut civil pour les personnes transgenres ».

La lenteur au niveau de procédure, bons nombres de complications pour bénéficier des différentes assistances dû à de longues procédures administratives. l’indifférence des agents du UNHCR face aux problèmes que nous les soumettons, l’intimidation et menaces de certains agents du UNHCR auprès des demandeurs d’asiles et réfugiés LGBTQ+ 🏳️‍🌈 des différents pays d’Afrique subsaharienne, des Harcèlements sexuels des agents du UNHCR recensées par les demandeurs d’asiles et réfugiés.

  • Ulster Co. (NY) Requires an FBI Agent Be Immediately Assigned to a Satellite Office Here
    Ulster County is the second fastest growing county in New York State. Local law enforcement, burdened as it is by unprecedented organic growth in the local population, needs Federal support. Gov. Hochul's Task Force mandate speaks directly to that dire need. In our hearts, we want to believe the unthinkable can never happen here in progressive Ulster. In our heads, we all know it can. The FBI must name a point person in Ulster Co. who is visibly and operationally responsible for working with local law enforcement to ensure the safety and security of its 182,000+ residents.

  • Region of Peel Citizen Appointment
    Black communities deserve a voice on issues that impact our families. The best way to ensure that our concerns are addressed is to mobilize and build collective power. Democracy is ongoing and accountability requires all of us to stay engaged. As we grapple with troubling over representation of Black people in violent interactions with Peel Regional Police, enacting the historic agreement between PRP, the Board and the Ontario Human Rights Commission, the aftermath of carding, the permanent end of the School Resource Officer program, the tragic loss of life and the intersections of mental health crisis and Blackness we are counting on our elected and appointed officials to work with Black communities and Black leaders to get this appointment right

  • Save Bob Marley's Beach
    Our beloved Bob Marley beach and its local rastafari community are in danger. If the plans to build a new hotel on the beach go through, fisherfolk and prominent Rastafari family members who have lived in the community for more than 50 years will be displaced! Formerly known as Thomas Beach, it was the place where Bob, Peter and Bunny communed with a longstanding Rastafarian community and has been a refuge of the poor, soon to be locked away by private interests who may have flaunted the law and processes in pursuit of their profit. It is unfortunate and cruel if this were to be allowed to happen in secret and with apparent government complicity. Other islands, like Barbados, have passed laws that guarantee open access to all of their beaches for their citizens rich or poor. This is certainly an insult to the spirit and character of Bob Marley for whom the beach was named on his passing, and would see his Rastafarian family thrown into the street. Let’s come together from across Jamaica and the world, to demand that the Bob Marley beach stays public, and all beaches in the country are guaranteed free public access for all Jamaican people and friends. Sign and share the petition with everyone you know!

  • Save the Ark Aid Street Mission & First Baptist Church
    All of this because of one anonymous complaint. For those who may not belong to a faith community but are concerned about what they see on our streets, on Richmond Row, in our downtown core right now, we implore you to show your support. We will have a catastrophe this winter if churches are not allowed to partner with the Ark or other service providers to welcome people in out of the cold, to assemble, to be fed, to use a washroom, to get showered. We will fight this. We are calling on people of London; people of faith, people of good will, people of no faith, people who care about the plight of the unhoused across the city to join us in this fight. We cannot address the serious crises we are in in the city with homelessness if we do not work together.

  • Fund Just and Equitable Transition for AZ Coal-Impacted Communities NOW
    Utilities have a corporate, moral and ethical responsibility to ensure that land and natural resources they have impacted are fully restored and must fulfill their corporate decommissioning and remediation commitments. A Just and Equitable Transition away from fossil fuels must include access to running water, telecommunications, and electricity infrastructure for impacted community members. Finally. The ACC should immediately approve any Just and Equitable Transition agreement brokered between utility owners and affected communities, including the agreement negotiated between the Navajo Nation and Arizona Public Service Company (APS). The Commission should also direct Tucson Electric Power (TEP) to immediately broker a commensurate agreement and file it for the Commission’s review and approval as part of the utility’s pending rate case. At a minimum, such agreements must include sizable financial support for impacted communities, supported by both the utility and its ratepayers.
