Le monde doit reconnaître le génocide des chrétiens
Christianity is the most persecuted religion in the world. Christians are imprisoned, tortured and even killed.
All this just for their faith.
Each month, on average, there are 255 killings, 104 kidnappings, 180 women raped or harassed, 66 churches attacked and 160 incarcerations without trial , according to the organization Open Doors **.
Last year, 3,066 Christians were massacred, 1,252 were kidnapped, 1,020 women were raped and 793 churches were attacked . A large part of them were children and young people, a privileged target of Islamists to scare the population ***. The regions of Africa, Asia and the Middle East are those where they are the most punished.
What can we do for them?
International institutions ignore the current situation of hundreds of millions of people threatened with extermination because of their religious beliefs. It is essential to ensure that organizations such as the United Nations and the European Union formally recognize that Christians have been systematically persecuted in the world for years.
That is why we ask Ahmed Shaheed, Special Rapporteur on Religious Freedom at the UN, and Ján Figel, Special Envoy for the Promotion of Religious Freedom outside the European Union, to officially recognize as genocide the religious persecution perpetrated against Christians because of their religion.
We will have the opportunity to meet Ahmed Shaheed in Geneva and Ján Figel in Bratislava: on these two occasions, we will show them the signatures collected during this campaign and ask them to admit the existence of a genocide against Christians.
