Take Action on Critical Transparency Legislation in the Senate

Last month, as a member of the Publish What You Pay U.S. (PWYP US) coalition, ERI announced the introduction in the U.S. Senate of the "Energy Security through Transparency Act of 2009," by Sens. Richard Lugar (R-IN) and Ben Cardin (D-MD). The Act, if passed, would require companies registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to report how much they pay each government for access to their oil, gas and minerals. This disclosure would apply to all companies that file with the SEC, regardless of where they are based, and would be added to existing SEC requirements. Most of the world’s extractive industries would be covered by this law, and would set a new international standard for corporate and state behavior.

Take action here.

SNP criticises UK government over gay and lesbian asylum seekers

The Scottish Nationalist Party passed a resolution this weekend criticising the UK government for its treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans asylum seekers.

The party held its annual conference in Inverness and passed a resolution attacking the UK government for "consistently [turning] a blind eye to homophobic persecution abroad”.

Anne McLaughlin, SNP MSP for Glasgow, said that LGBT asylum seekers were returned to their home countries without any regard of what might happen to them, including jail or execution.

According to the Herald, she said: “We are not talking here about people having the right to have sex in the street, for goodness sake.

“We are just talking about them having the right to say ‘This is who I am’.”

More here.

Thank the SNP by sending them an email: snp.hq@snp.org. And be sure to tell them where you're from.

EveryOne

EveryOne Group is an organization of people who operate outside any political wing or faction and who are committed to fighting discrimination and in particular the persecution of minority groups and in favour of human rights. It is important to emphasize this aspect of our group, because it allows the group to protect minorities even when party ideologies are transformed and phenomena like racism, xenophobia and homophobia take root – like diseases – where we would least expect it.

EveryOne was created because people who share the same ideals came together and decided to join forces, experience, and ideas in order to defend human lives, culture and lifestyles. Some of the activists in the group have been carrying out campaigns in defence of human rights for over a decade, others have joined us recently.

The name for the group was chosen two years ago. Most of the articles in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights start with “EveryOne”.

Amnesty Int'l does great work for the world, and it's great to know that there are atheists who're doing the work too!
