Send a copy of "Women and Sharia Law" to Every MP & Peer

#1 Post by Alan H » August 21st, 2016, 12:29 am

An initiative by Maryam Namazie: Send a copy of "Women and Sharia Law" to Every MP & Peer
Elham Manea's new book "Women and Sharia Law: The Impact of Legal Pluralism in the UK" (I. B. Tauris, May 2016) provides considerable evidence to show how Sharia courts violate the fundamental principles of protection, equality and non-discrimination and documents the harmful and even life threatening consequences for minority women.

Women's rights campaigners aim to raise enough money to send a copy of Manea's book to every MP and Peer in order to highlight the adverse consequences of Sharia courts on women's rights and lives and facilitate the dismantling of parallel legal systems in Britain.

This is particularly timely given the government's upcoming inquiry into the courts.

your donation will get this game-changing book into the hands of those who need it most. It will provide policy makers with the information needed to do the right thing to ensure that the same principles of human rights, equality before the law, duty of care, due diligence and the rule of law are applicable to all British citizens.

With your help, we will be able to send 1500 copies to every MP, Peer and relevant minister , thanks to I. B. Tauris' discounted rate of £5 per book for this project.

The law and not religion is the key basis for securing justice for all citizens. #OneLawforAll

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?
