Stop Violent Protests in Nepal Over New Constitution

police-by-eric-hossinger

Target: Ram Baran Yadav, President of Nepal

Goal: Come to a compromise with minority groups over the new constitution to stop violent protests like the ones that killed seven police officers and a child.

Protests in Nepal over the newly proposed constitution turned violent recently as thousands of protesters stormed a zone named as prohibited by the government. Protesters surrounded police officers who were trying to deescalate the situation and attacked them with axes, scythes and spears. One officer was burned alive, and sixteen others were injured.

Seven police officers and one child were killed in the attack, with no protester deaths currently recorded. The protesters mostly belong to minority groups like the country’s Tharu minority, who say the new constitution would further marginalize them by federalizing the country and dividing it into seven provinces.  The groups are fighting for their own provinces.

These violent protests are unacceptable, but fighting these groups on the ground may just lead to more violence and death. Urge the president of Nepal to talk with protesters and come to a compromise over the new constitution to stop violent protests.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Ram Baran Yadav,

As you know, minority groups protesting the newly proposed constitution recently killed multiple police officers and a child after attacking with axes, scythes and spears. These protesters mostly belong to minority groups like the country’s Tharu minority who want their own provinces rather than feeling further marginalized by the proposed new seven provinces.

The fighting and violent protesting will only continue unless both sides are able to come together and reach a compromise in the situation. I urge you to take action by hearing out the protesters’ objections and coming up with a compromise over the new constitution.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. WOW!!! We need a petition like this in the USA to protect our police officers from violent protesters, ignorant of the true facts & percentages they protest about. These protesters are seeking a reason, no matter the fact that their reason is a LIE, to rant, to rage, to kill innocent people. How despicable! They need to get the huge chips off their shoulders, inform themselves of the facts, get a job so they have something constructive to do besides stomping down the streets. They need to GROW UP & behave as adults responsible for their own actions!
