In the annals of history, the Liberation War witnessed unfathomable atrocities perpetrated by the Pakistan Army, resulting in the loss of approximately three million lives on the lands of a state that is now Bangladesh. Tragically, over two hundred thousand women endured heinous acts of sexual violence, and millions of lives were taken. This campaign, led by Global Human Rights Defence (GHRD), seeks to bring these war crimes to light and advocate for their formal recognition by esteemed international bodies, including the United Nations, the European Union, and the United States of America.
To ensure justice for the victims, to prevent the erasure of their stories from the collective conscience of the global community, and to prevent the recurrence of similar tragic events in the future.
In October 2023, we started our journey by conducting extensive research, networking, choosing events, coordinating with partners, and producing persuasive advocacy materials. We will begin on-the-ground operations in November 2023, primarily in Brussels, Geneva, and the Netherlands. Our primary focus will be on our involvement in conferences, such as the Global European Summit in Brussels, where we will meet with MEPs and engage with UN representatives. Additionally, we will collaborate with local organizations and actively work with Dutch research universities, in addition to strategically reaching out to the media. By March 2024, when we hope to present our case at the 55th UNHCR Convention in Geneva, the campaign aims to collect 30 million signatures. As a result, March 2024 will be dedicated to planning, reporting, and assessment for continued lobbying initiatives until September. Our goal is to make our case at the 55th UNHRC Convention in Geneva, and this timeline suits that goal.
Support our campaign by signing the petition, sharing our message on social media, or contributing to our cause. Together, we can ensure that the voices of the victims are heard, and justice prevails.
