PLEASE SIGN AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL PETITION
Protect Kenyan human rights defenders from death threats

The results of the December 2007 Kenyan election are contested, and have
resulted in significant political conflict in Kenya that has become
divided on ethnic lines. There has been widespread violence in different
parts of Kenya, including parts of Nairobi, Nyanza Province, Western
Province, the Rift Valley and Coast Province. The violence was largely
instigated by supporters of the opposition party, the Orange Democratic
Movement (ODM), who believed the presidential election had been rigged
in favor of President Kibaki. There were reports of excessive use of
force by the police against protesters, including protesters being shot
dead.

There have been many attacks on Kikuyu people, often with machetes,
stones, clubs, and bows and arrows. The Kikuyu are largely perceived to
have supported President Kibaki, while the Luo and Kalenjin are thought
to have supported the opposition candidate, Raila Odinga. Recently the
number of retaliatory attacks by Kikuyu gangs on Luo and Kalenjin people
has increased.

All except one of the human rights defenders and pro-democracy activists
who were threatened are of Kikuyu ethnicity. The threats they have
received include accusations that they are “traitors” to their
ethnicity, because they have spoken out about what they believe to have
been irregularities in the election result, or about human rights abuses
committed by the police and armed gangs, including gangs of Kikuyu
people, throughout the country.

Four of the human rights defenders and activists are also named in an
anonymously authored pamphlet that has been circulating within the
Kikuyu community in Kenya by print and email in recent days. The
pamphlet includes the four as part of a list of more 25 people of Kikuyu
origin, who it calls “traitors (who) live among us in peace”, and
included a veiled threat that they should be killed.

Over 600 people have been killed in Kenya’s post-election violence, and
the UN has stated that over 250,000 people have been displaced from
their homes. Thousands have crossed into Uganda and Tanzania as refugees.

よろしく。
