From my position as Secretary-General of the World Shield Organization for the Protection of Freedom and Citizen’s Rights, I demand from all the governments of the world to obligate by the implementation of international human rights instruments, especially after we in this organization have seen a great decline in this field , because of the wars that are afflicting these countries.
It is important to discuss this important issue in our Arab region Which has been witnessing conflicts and wars that have been going on for more than six years
These circumstances have had negative effects on the citizens of these countries and their neighboring countries , in terms of violations of human rights guaranteed by all international laws and conventions , such as the freedom of expression and the human right to education and treatment and the right to provide all the basic needs which life cannot go on without them.
Although the existence of wars and conflicts in our region is a fact that cannot be ignored, but we have observed that citizens in some countries of the region are being suppressed under illusory pretexts and illogical arguments such as combating terrorism, for example
In terms under these arguments permanent violations occurred in human rights, and free people place them in jail , and issue the law and legislation which restrict the freedom of expression
As a human rights organization, addressed in human right we spoke with many countries according this regard. We have monitored many violations and many of them have been dealt with. We continue to do our work and carry out our mission, despite we are facing many difficulties because of the circumstances of these countries and their instability, although these difficulties will not prevent us from continuing to do our duty
Political conditions have been imposed not only in the Arab region although in many countries of the world. We mean the political circumstances because of the existence of conflicts and wars
. These conditions imposed many security challenges. Such challenges posed many burdens on citizens, and these challenges were a cause to impose many laws and legislations that extremely harmed the human rights.
Despite we do not deny the existence of such security challenges, but we reiterate our call to the governments and countries of the region to deal with a kind of balance and respect for international laws and respect for the rights of the citizen, where we do not need to remind of these rights.
There is no need to name the countries where there are violations and permanent attacks on human rights , and just we say that many people have become homeless due to conflicts and wars. As many children have been deprived of their basic rights to education, as well as the inability of many people to receive treatment and a decent life
We are carrying out our mission in a world full of turmoil, but thanks to God we have accomplished much and there is still much to do, hoping that we will succeed in our mission and complete this talk in future articles
