Click for Source RT Article

United Arab Emirates = INTIMIDATES activists and their families with interrogators pulling out fingernails, suspending activists upside down for long periods, ripping hair out from beards and chests, and threatening them with rape and death.

The United Arab Emirates = JAILED 100+ activists since 2011 for calling for political transformation — Amnesty International 80 page report titled ‘There is no freedom here’

UAE = Silences ALL dissent

UAE = Ruling Wahabism Theocracy = Distracting Foreigners with glamorous appearance of Dubai and Abu Dhabi = Formula One Grand Prix + Glitz + gloss + glamour of the facade UAE‘s rulers present to the outside world

UAE = Conducting harsh violations of human rights.

UAE = “darker reality” = Torture and widespread abuse by authorities = Series of Arab Spring uprisings in 2011 = Ugly reality activists who dare to speak out in favor of democracy and “accountability are thrown into jail.”

UAE authorities = Quietly Clamped-down on dissentients + Enforced disappearances + Torture + Ill-treatment of detainees + Unfair trials + Long prison sentences + Continuing harassment and persecution of activists and their families = 100 activists prosecuted on national security-“cybercrime” (TALKING ON THE WEB) and 67 of these “prisoners of conscience” remain in prison, Amnesty reports.

UAE Clampdown = Started in March 2011 after 133 people signed a petition calling for the right to an elected parliament. = A mass trial of 94 people saw 69 activists convicted TO SERVE 7 to 15 years in prison — Accused of seeking to seize power + Some were stripped of citizenship. = Lawyers, university professors, students, and civil society activists.

UAE = Arrested a 25-year-old in March 2014 for a Twitter comment and held in solitary confinement where he was beaten repeatedly while being threatened with electric shocks. + His father is serving an 11-year prison term.

UAE authorities = Arbitrarily arrest and detain and disappear people for peacefully exercising their rights to freedom of expression and association

UAE MONARCHS = MUST overhaul laws that criminalize rights to freedom of expression, including the cybercrimes law and an anti-terrorism law passed in 2014 — Amnesty International

UAE MONARCHS = MUST STOP Torture and ill treatment.

UAE = SHOULD NOT be a member of the UN Human Rights Council or a business partner on an international stage

UAE authorities response to Amnesty International = Promotion of human rights is an “ongoing process.” (UAE SAYS FUCK OFF 99.999% OF HUMANITY)
