    Human Rights Demand for Justice

    in Politics Progressive

    JUSTICE is the constant and perpetual disposition to render every man his due. It is the proper administration of the law; the fair and equitable treatment of all individuals under the law. Justice is also a title given to certain judges, such as federal and state supreme court judges. Justice is 1) fairness, 2) moral rightness, 3) a scheme or system of law in which every person receives his/her/its due from the system, including all rights, both natural and legal. One problem is that attorneys, judges, and legislatures often get caught up more in procedure than in achieving justice for all. 
    (Read more at http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/justice ).


    At "Human Rights Demand," we believe that justice is unlikely to happen where lawmakers and justice officials have a conflict of interest. Demand the resignations of lawmakers, judges, public defenders, prosecutors, Justice Department personnel and everyone else on the public's payroll if they are also PRISON INVESTORS. That is the only way to decriminalize mental illness, eliminate mass incarceration, and restore justice to our courtrooms. Tell public employees to DIVEST OR RESIGN. We must rid our government of everyone whose stock portfolios perform best with mass incarceration, wars, and when environmental concerns are ignored. Ask your congressional representative to introduce a bill that prohibits all lawmakers and other public officials and their spouses from earning prison profits. Pass such a bill, and we will see positive Change in the justice system. Only when prison investors can no longer write laws, represent and prosecute defendants, or preside over criminal cases will any semblance of justice arrive in U.S. courts.

    Mary Diaz and Human Conflicts Org. Demand More Paroles 04/03/2015

    in Politics Progressive

    At 3pmEST on Fridays, we present Mary Diaz on the "Human Rights Demand" radio broadcast. Mary is a prisoner activist who advocates to increase paroles and pardons. Please call (347)857-3293 to speak on air. You can also listen by computer live or hear the archived tape 24/7. Diaz is affiliated with "Human Conflicts Organization," where "LET MY PEOPLE GO" is the motto. She lives in Florida, which had over 5,200 inmates who were parole eligible in 2014 but fewer than 20 were released. Prison investors on the Pardons and Parole Board are a barrier to freedom for many rehabilitated inmates. Diaz and Human Conflicts Org. advocate the immediate release of prisoners who have served their minimum sentences and an increase in the number of prisoners who are granted compassionate releases. Prisoners who have been rehabilited and prisoners who are elderly and have served their minimum sentences as well as hospice inmates present no threat to society and deserve immediate release. Taxpayers should not be made to spend billions of dollars every year to excessively sentence prisoners when money is needed to improve the quality of life for free people.

    in Politics Progressive

    BOB DARBY, ADVOCATE FOR THE HOMELESS - Thursdays, 3:00 p.m. EST ~ Darby  has been an advocate for the homeless for more than twenty years.  Please call to speak on air at (347) 857-3293 for all broadcasts. He has a B.A. in psychology from Emory University. Darby also studied in psychology and theology in graduate school. He is a former employee of Georgia Regional Hospital, Boston State Hospital, and New Hampshire's Hanover-Darthmouth Hospital. In 1994, he co-founded Atlanta Food Not Bombs. Darby is a writer and public speaker.


    Darby asserts drug additions that lead to homelessness were partly facilitated by the CIA, which began trafficking herion, crack and other drugs into America years ago, sometimes with the corpses of deceased American soldiers. He cites documented proof from books by respected journalists and government records. Bob also asserts that people with serious mental illness are deliberately rendered homeless in the United States of America and deprived of psychiatric and medical health care services.


    Voters should petition elected officials to improve treatment and subsistence assistance for mentally ill people and those with substance abuse issues. Please use this link to contact your elected officials:
