Justice For Liz – Please support the petition and campaign 31 October 2013

There is  worldwide shock and horror concerning the rape of a Kenyan 16 year old known as Liz, in Busia, Western Kenya. Her mistreatment, threats towards her family  and barriers placed in her pursuit of Justice has brought shame to Kenya, The Kenya Police and the Judicial system. Over 1.3 million people have signed a petition calling for the immediate justice for Liz and to send a strong message to police everywhere that rape is not a misdemeanour. Please support the Justice For Liz Petition initiated by Nabila Abdulmelik in Kenya.

We should thank Avaaz the crowd sourcing community petition for supporting this campaign, and the million of people around the world who are fighting against injustice.


Justice For Liz – Petition

kind regards
