Target: Frank Bainimarama, Prime Minister of Fiji
Goal: Stop unjust torture and beatings in Fiji that are a violation of human rights.
A new report by Amnesty International, one of the top international human rights organizations, has found that Fiji’s government has committed horrific human rights violations largely involving the use of torture and beatings. Demand Fiji end this violence by the government and stop these atrocious human rights abuses.
The justice system in Fiji has become militarized ever since the nation’s coup in 2006. Officials have committed sexual violence and illegal shootings, along with severely beating and torturing civilians, all qualifying as violations of international human rights law.
However, Fiji’s constitution allows for government officials to get away with this abuse unpunished.
The report included detailed information on five different cases where citizen had died from injuries they received while in custody by officials and where citzens had been fatally beaten.
Fiji cannot continue to commit such grave human rights injustices and violence against its people. Demand officials stop the torture and beatings and work with Amnesty International to right their wrongs.
Dear Prime Minister Bainimarama,
A report by Amnesty International found that officials in your government are beating and torturing its citizens and violating human rights and international law. This violence is unnecessary and will not be condoned while the international community is watching.
These human rights injustices cannot continue. I demand you end the use of torture and beatings by your government and commit to correcting these injustices.
[Your Name Here]
