Call on Chief Ojo Uma Maduekwe, the Nigerian High Commissioner in Canada, to help secure the safe release of the girls.

Your Excellency,

I am writing to express my concern over the abduction of hundreds of school girls from the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Nigeria.

I urge the Nigerian authorities to work to secure the safe release of the girls and to ensure that the perpetrators of this attack are brought to justice.

I also urge the Nigerian government to ensure that all children are able to access their right to education in safety, and to respect, protect and fulfill the human rights of all Nigerians without discrimination.

Dandelion had sent around a mailing with a compilation of 10 petitions.. Thx, signed this too. I admit I am not sure at all if all our petitions here can bring about change.. our signatures alone are not the international help and negotiations needed.
