African Union Campaign - Petition as Submitted to African Union with Statement to African Unions and Current List of Signatories

Dear Colleagues,


Please find attached the petition and list of current signatories.


Kindly help circulate urgently to your media/press contacts in Europe and internationally for publication.


Some more organisations and persons have indictaed their intention to sign up or issue statements in support so we have decided to continue running the petition and submit a follow up list at a significant time in the near future which should contain more support from prominent African writers, more news organisations and maybe Bar associations and Trade unions etc.


Best Regards.

Adeyinka Olubunmi
