Goal: 25,000 Progress: 8,847
Sponsored by: Global Girlfriend

The kidnapping of almost 300 teenage girls in Nigeria has thrust Boko Haram and their crimes onto the international stage. Since their founding in 2001, they have been responsible for countless bombings, assassinations and kidnappings in the name of their extremist ideologies.

Boko Haram is strongly against western culture and especially western education. To advance their viewpoints, they resort to violence and intimidation to stop people from receiving a non-Islamic education. While their goal of establishing an Islamic caliphate in place of Nigeria's current democracy is primarily a local aim, this group is not just Nigeria's problem.

As the protectors of international peace and security, the United Nations Security Council has a duty to aid Nigeria in stopping Boko Haram's terrorist activities so that Nigerian citizens can pursue their education in peace and exercise their right to freedom of thought.

Call on the United Nations Security Council to use every tool within their power, including the use of force to maintain or restore international peace and security, to support Nigeria so Boko Haram can be a thing of the past.

To the United Nations Security Council,

Boko Haram's emergence onto the international stage with the kidnapping of almost 300 girls has caused international alarm. Unfortunately, this brazen deed is one of many violent and brutal attacks carried out by the group since they were founded in 2001.

Boko Haram is strongly against western culture and especially western education. To advance their viewpoints, they resort to violence and intimidation to stop people from receiving a non-Islamic education. While their goal of establishing an Islamic caliphate in place of Nigeria's current democracy is primarily a local aim, this group is not just Nigeria's problem.

As the protectors of international peace and security, the United Nations Security Council has a duty to aid Nigeria in stopping Boko Haram's terrorist activities so that Nigerian citizens can pursue their education in peace and exercise their right to freedom of thought.

No one, anywhere in the world, should have to face violence and intimidation in an effort to obtain an education.

Please offer more assistance to Nigerian authorities as they confront Boko Haram.

Sincerely,

Petition Signatures
