If you are a Human Rights Activists, experiencing persecution based on your ‘membership in a particular social group’, or your political opinions, then we are here to help you out of your predicament, and into a country that respects your human rights!
Watch a video depicting some brave women standing up for their rights. Some are in prison now. We know this scenario all too well. For years, our team of immigration specialists have helped people who are persecuted for standing up for the human rights of themselves and others, in an ultra-strict, controlling and oppressive societies. Unfortunately, once the persecution starts, people become targets for scrutiny of their lives on several fronts. Criticizing regimes is often followed by severe consequences for the activist and sometimes their family members. One of the heartbreaking stories we often hear from Human Rights Activists, and others who are persecuted, is that if people don’t bend to the will of the authorities, stop their actions, and shut up, their family members are threatened with terrible acts of persecution as well. Such acts add a whole new dimension to standing up for people’s rights, and many are forced to succumb to silence, just to protect their loved ones.
It is been noted through our research that women, in particular, become targets in a male-dominated, Islamic society, because the women are not supposed to be voicing their opinions in general. Women seem to be valued less in the eyes of the law in many countries, making situations more difficult when some level of protection is required.
Areas of certain countries have been taken over by those involved in drugs, prostitution and sex-slaves, including underage age children. Social activists trying to form support groups and reporting such activity may be shut down very fast, one way or another, by a patriarchal society which doesn’t enforce laws to protect women nearly enough. Forced marriages and child marriages still take place and our team works hard to protect females from such fates.
We have heard so many stories about human rights being squashed in different ways from our clients that it just increases our resolve to help people escape such unreasonable oppression when they are just living their lives and become victims.
Religious persecution is another area in which many of our clients site as a reason to claim Refugee status. It is hard to believe that people are not free to worship as they please in this day and age. Unfortunately, this is still a reality for many, especially when religious leaders, control the government, military and most of the business. They see anyone with a different belief system than theirs, as a definite threat. Minority religions and races face discrimination and persecution constantly and we applaud those brave enough to stand up to unjust regimes and their extreme punishments.
