On 14th April, some 230 schoolgirls were abducted in the town of Chibok, Nigera. Whilst 43 have escaped, another 187 are still missing.

In accordance with the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, we believe that everyone, without distinction of any kind, has the right to life, liberty and security of person.

We are committed to raising awareness of this incident which must be considered a breach of the human rights of over 200 young women in Nigeria. We are therefore petitioning the UK government to act in order to free these girls.
