Goal: 15,000 Progress: 2,626

Between the years of 1990 and 2000, terrible atrocities were committed against women in Peru. President at the time Alberto Fujimori was at the heart of a campaign to sterilize women as a form of extreme birth control.

Most of the women targeted were poor and from impoverished areas, and therefore had little access to family planning resources or help that could otherwise protect them from the forced sterilization. It's clear that President Fujimori preyed on these women. Many times, the women couldn't even choose whether they wanted the procedure done or not.

The UN needs to step up and redress this terrible assault on human rights — Fujimori hasn't been punished for these crimes nor have the women been given assistance.

Tell the UN: devise a plan to rectify Fujimori's gross attacks on human rights in Peru.

Dear UN representatives:

From 1990 to 2000, hundreds of thousands of women in Peru experienced forced sterilizations on behalf of Peru's president at the time Alberto Fujimori. The sterilizations were a part of his aggressive family planning plan, aimed to cut birth rates significantly.

Over this period of time, sterilizations were performed by unqualified people and often without anesthetics. As a result, many of the women suffered permanent physical and emotional stress.

The UN still has not taken steps to rectify this situation — whether it be holding Fujimori responsible or providing assistance to the affected women.

It's your job to make sure this injustice does not go unpunished. Stand up for human rights.

Mar 22, 2017 amber James We absolutely must acknowledge that this happened and be sure that we stand up for those silenced. This is disgusting and horrific to contemplate. Justice must be sought and care provided. Is that not the lowest bar we we have? A little support?

Mar 22, 2017 JACQUELINE LHEUREAUX This horrific injustice is difficult to comprehend - that it would take place in the 21st Century. Is Fujimori a Nazi at heart? He MUST not go unpunished, and these women MUST be given assistance.
