Petition: Amend Articles 13 (b), 55 (c) & 76 (c) of the ‘Charter of the United Nations and Statute of the International Court of Justice,’ to include freedom from religion.

“The proposed amendments seek to protect the rights of non-believers and their freedom to express their non-belief, in member countries with standing blasphemy laws that infringe upon the human rights of non-believers.  At present, the Articles expressly protect religious freedoms, but do not protect the freedom of non-believers and as such, non-believers are being persecuted, imprisoned and even executed for expressing their opinions with regards to certain religions in various member countries.”
