Oppose Election of Qaddafi Supporter to UN Human Rights Council

Take Action On This Issue

Switzerland has nominated Jean Ziegler -- co-founder of the "Moammar Qaddafi Human Rights Prize" -- for the UN Human Rights Council’s advisory committee, to represent the Western group. The election is scheduled for Sept. 27, 2013. As documented by the Times of London and The Guardian , Mr. Ziegler has publicly endorsed Fidel Castro, Robert Mugabe, Hugo Chavez, Colonel Mengistu, and other repressive rulers. He grossly abused the mandate of a previous UN post to pursue an extremist political agenda. Click for video and documentary evidence.

Send an email, using the form below, to Switzerland's president and foreign minister, expressing your disappointment in their sponsorship of Mr. Ziegler. Protest the cynical abuse of human rights and of the U.N. Charter's founding principles.
