Last Push for the UN Resolution on WHRDs - Tweet a State Rep!
The resolution for the protection of women human rights defenders is to be discussed in the next 24 hours. This is the first time a resolution on the situation and significance of women human rights defenders has been put on the table. So, we have some hours to make more noise about the importance of the resolution and name the States that are not co-sponsoring or the ones who are silent against the attacks to the spirit of the resolution. Also why not congratulate the ones that have and ask them why supporting the resolution is important!
No African State and very few Asian States have co-sponsored yet. Ask them why not!
For today and tomorrow we proposed to help us sending tweet messages to the State Delegations in the UN. In the attached file, you will find a directory of the particular States we need to address and their Twitter handles.
Feel free to send the message you want, but always using the hashtag #protectWHRDs #WHRDsResol so we can track them.
