  2. Dear Amazing Avaaz community,

    Tell your story
    It’s hard to believe, but we just passed the 20 million mark. 20 million of us, from every corner of our world. Phwa!:) There’s never been a community like this, and campaign after campaign, we’re winning.

    But huge numbers are just the beginning of this crazy, special thing we’ve created together. This is an incredible group of people, the kind of people that care enough to sign or call or donate when no one is looking. It’s time to meet each other. Because it’s the hope and trust and connection we share that makes us strong. Strong enough to change the world.

    We all have a story of where we’ve been, who we are. Click to see a global map of us, in photos and stories. Meet someone else by reading theirs, or tell your story and give us all the chance to meet you! We’d love to.

    From Avaaz.org:

    Dear friends,

    It’s horrific! A Maldives court just sentenced a 15-year-old rape survivor to 100 whip lashings. By threatening Maldives politicians’ precious tourist income we can save this child and stop these outrageous public floggings. Let’s quickly build a one million strong call, then place ads in travel magazines and websites:

    It’s hard to believe, but a 15-year-old rape survivor has been sentenced to be whipped 100 times in public! Let’s put an end to this lunacy by hitting the Maldives government where it hurts: the tourism industry.

    The girl’s stepfather is accused of raping her for years and murdering the baby she bore. Now the court says she must be flogged for “sex outside marriage”! President Waheed of the Maldives is already feeling global pressure on this, and we can force him to save this girl and change the law to spare other victims this cruel fate. This is how we can end the War on Women – by standing up every time an outrage like this happens.

  11. I’ve signed. Let’s be real here people, it’s not a government, or authorities it’s a way of life that is behind this terrible event. The sad thing is they’ll probably stop it only because of the loss of tourist dollars, not because it is an horrendous abuse of an innocent victim.
