JCYCN Campaign against Human Rights Violations in Nepal
un article par United Network of Young Peacebuilders

Civil society organizations including JCYCN [Jagriti Child and Youth Concern Nepal] launched a nationwide campaign against caste-based discrimination and untouchability, in coordination with other 44 organizations from August 2012. Under the campaign there were several activities like conferences and workshops with civil society activists, human rights defenders, professional, media etc. We organized several coordination meetings with other partners and organizers during the preparation period to make the campaign a grand success. A team of 25 campaigners, both from Dalit and Non-Dalit community joined the journey from Ilam (Far Eastern) to Kanchanpur (Far Western) and crossed 34 districts throughout Nepal. They traveled 5000 kilometer during the campaign. Hon. Kedar Nath Upadhya, Chairperson of National human Rights Commission, inaugurated the campaign on August 12, 2012. During the campaign, campaigners in coordination with local organizers organized common feasts among dalits and non- dalits, felicitated inter caste-couples, street drama, cultural programs, interaction programs, talk shows and other programs of social awareness.

The continue violation against women like; rape, sexual assault, and domestic violence in various forms in Nepal still remained a serious issue. This has been proved by the report published recently by INSEC [Informal Sector Service Centre], the human right organization. The report says the total 910 incidents haven recorded by INSEC during documentation in regard to violation against women. The government in Nepal has a shocking record of broken promises on human rights and justice.

Peace process, sustainability of Human Rights for all Nepalese and to take decisive action against impunity and make justice a priority, is the compulsory duty of government.

Today’s Situation of Human Rights in Nepal if we have to look from bird eye view, seriously we must say Nepal’s government have failed to take significant steps toward numerous human rights violation happened in its territory . The Human Rights Watch had also analyzed in its annual World Report 2013 that Nepal’s government has failed to take significant steps toward numerous human rights violation. Still various Pushing Factors are leading Nepalese society, which is a serious cause for Human Right violation and the most serious causes are Poverty, Corruption, Unemployment, Gender Discrimination, Lack of Proper Education, Lack of Democratic culture and Ethnic Discrimination. In 2012 the Nepal governments have ignored its human rights obligations built into the 2006 Comprehensive Peace Accord. At least 13,000 people were killed and over 1,600 became victims of “disappearances” during the decade-long conflict from 1996-2006 between government forces and Maoist rebels. Instead of seeking justice for serious abuses, the government has consistently promoted to senior positions officials and military officers linked to serious rights violations, which are one of the shameless histories of our country for upcoming generation. Addressing an interaction program organized on August 30, 2012 to mark the International Day of the Disappeared (2012), chairperson justice of National Human Right Commission Kedar Nath Upadhya said that there are still around 1400 disappearance citizens.
