Update the Geneva Convention NOW
This is a petition to update the Geneva Convention. The Geneva Convention was created on a time before terror, when armies fought armies. The Geneva Convention was created to ensure, as much as possible, that captured soldiers would receive humane treatment by their captors. However, when soldiers are captured by terrorists, those soldiers have no human rights. The Geneva Convention doesn't protect them.Sign PetitionSign Petition
We are starting a petition to have the Geneva Convention updated and include ALL captured soldiers, regardless of who the captors are. We believe in equality and that all humans have the same rights, and that all captives must be treated in a humane manner. We also believe that the torture of captives' families by the captors, whether it be physically, emotionally, psychologically or financially, is a war crime.
All captured soldiers must be visited by Human Rights groups and granted humane treatment regardless of who holds them prisoners.
If you believe in equality, human rights for all and that the Geneva Convention must include all captured soldiers, please sign this petition.
