Human Rights Foundation Secretary-General Loïc Jauffret says nations such as Endralon cannot be excused for their subjugation and persecution of women. Speaking to various international media outlets, he called on the World Congress to increase pressure on countries in which women are treated as second-class citizens.
Across Terra, there are many nations in which it is viewed as less desirable to be a woman. For whatever reason, the governments of these nations (and sometimes even the women themselves) believe that it is an inherent truth that a woman should be subservient to a man. That is wrong. We have seen copious amounts of research which shows that the easiest way for a state to improve its economic and social prosperity is to incorporate women into society on free and equal terms. In nations which previously forbade women from working, or strongly discouraged it through social pressure, repealing these laws is essentially doubling the workforce. It is, then, no wonder that Terra's most powerful economic players- Hutori, Kalistan, Trigunia and Vanuku to name a few- all grant women the same rights which they grant men.

Afterwards, Jauffret discussed the nations which he believed needed urgent change. According to the HRF, there are still three nations in which women are not given the same working rights as men- Endralon, Tukarali and Beiteynu. Jauffret believes other nations should be doing more to tackle the problems of gender inequality.

New Endralon opposes any attempt to pressure Endralon

Today, the Confederal government of the Confederation of New Endralon, Kizenia and Kuzaki has made it clear that the government does not support the calls for pressure on Endralon. The Human Rights Foundation released a statement saying that they find it appalling how women are treated in the Federal Republic of Endralon and how the World Congress should increase pressure on said nation. The Confederal government has stated that it does agree that womens rights should be supported and that this can be done by allowing the New Endralonians to act as mediators in talks with their brothers in Endralon. The Confederation also warned that any attempt to harm the Federal Republic would be met with severe opposition from the New Endralonians.

Democratic Yeudish Party is 'most dangerous organisation in Terra'

Human Rights Foundation Secretary-General Loïc Jauffret has heavily criticised the Yeudish Republic of Beiteynu and the legislative agenda of the Democratic Yeudish Party in particular. Jauffret told journalists that the DYP was the single largest obstacle to universal human rights and, as a result, the most dangerous organisation in Terra. Among the oppressive and backwards legislation in the country is segregation of minorities, a ban on interracial sex and the use of slavery of a punishment.

Furthermore, Jauffret called on government's across Terra to do more to pressurise Beiteynu. 'Although most nations now recognise the horror and scale of the crimes being perpetrated within Beiteynu, not enough is being done to hold the Yeudish Republic to account,' he remarked 'the World Congress has become pre-occupied with self-indulgence and has created an echo chamber in which the real issues which face the people of Terra are rarely even discussed. Unless urgent action is taken to persuade Beiteynu to correct their laws, people will continue to die in that country.' Jauffret claimed that at least one nation, Sekowo, still retained official diplomatic relations with the country.

HRF Welcomes Confederation Willingness to Mediate

The Human Rights Foundation has made it known that they are willing to communicate with the regime in the Confederation of of New Endralon, Kizenia and Kuzaki in order to advance the cause of women's rights. Previosuly, the Confederal government had stated their public opposition to the HRF's criticisms of Endralon- one of several nations in which discrimination on the grounds of gender still exists- but said they would 'act as mediators'. The Foundation says they relish the chance to work with New Endralon/Kizenia if it produces a positive outcome for women's rights internationally.

Statement by the minister for internal affairs, Shahar Rothbart:

The government of Beiteynu hereby declares Mr Loïc Jauffret as personna non grata, as he is a member of this terrorist organization. The laws within Beiteynu are the domestic responsibility of the people of Beiteynu and not of some foreign terrorist organization.

Carlo Natti, Representative of the NGO Istalian Human Rights Association, associated organization to the Human Rights Foundation:

When Beiteynu will live without any kind of conctact with the rest of the world I hope we will free from the ridicoulus statements and lies of the shameless Government of Beiteynu. The only terrorists I see here are the rulers of Beiteynux which conduct for long time terrorist acting against their own people!

Human Rights Foundation Publishes Index of Nations

At a press conference in Dalibor, the Secretary-General of the Human Rights Foundation Pramila Pyakuryal released the details of her organisation's ongoing attempts to categorise the state of human rights across Terra. In a groundbreaking report, she pinpointed those nations in which human rights are under threat and highlighted those where effective protections exist. By dividing all of Terra's nation into four separate groups, she says she hopes that international resources can be utilised more effectively. Pyakuryal has been prominent in attempts to revitalise the role of the Human Rights Foundation, which has seen its international reputation decline in recent decades.

At the top of the rankings was the 'impressive' group, primarily consisting of highly developed nations such as Istalia, Kalistan and Dorvik as well as emerging states like Dranland and New Endralon which were characterised by extensive personal and political freedoms. 'Satisfactory' was the group below; these countries typically protected very basic rights but failed to guarantee certain other freedoms and included Trigunia and Vanuku. Next, those nations identified as 'requiring improvement' often failed to guarantee legal equality and defend minority rights, Davostan and Solentia were identified as examples. Finally, the 'critical' group was described as posing an immediate threat to citizens and included serial offenders Beiteynu and Saridan.

It isn't clear how the international community will respond to these latest developments but the Secretary-General is expected to pass on her organisation's conclusions to the World Congress to promote a discussion about the state of human rights in Terra and the best method for advancing the causes of justice and equality.

Istalia would like present to the Human Rights Foundation this new International Chart of Human Rights. Essentially, it is not different from many other Declaration of Human Rights, but Istalia aspires to make become this Chart one of the official and foundamental text of the World Congress, the highest international organization of our times.

International Chart of the Human Rights

Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,

Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people,

Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law,

Whereas it is essential to promote the development of friendly relations between nations,

Whereas the peoples of Terra have in the Charter reaffirmed their faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person and in the equal rights of men and women and have determined to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom,

Whereas the Nations of Terra have pledged themselves to achieve, in co-operation with the rest of the World, the promotion of universal respect for and observance of human rights and fundamental freedoms,

Whereas a COMMON UNDERSTANDING of these rights and freedoms is of the greatest importance for the full realization of this pledge,

THE INTERNATIONAL CHART OF HUMAN RIGHTS should be a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of the Nations of Terra themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction.
