Donations for Tawergha IDP's - 25 Oct 2014

 

Due to the ongoing prosecution of families from Tawergha hunted by the Misrata militias, we are forced to hand over all donations directly to the IDP's instead of spending them on projects (like the Cyber Cube project) for the Youth for Tawergha.

 

IDP's from Tawergha in Tripoli where evicted and those who stayed behind where shot or kidnapped. IDP camps in Tripoli and Benghazi where bombed and shot at and many personal belongings where destroyed by fire.

Action for hunted IDP's and Activists - 7 Oct 2014

 

Thousands of families from Tawergha are being hunted again by militias from Misrata (who took control of Tripoli last month) which forced the IDP's to flee to Tunesia.

Please read their letter and support them.

Tawergha Arabic Youtube Channel (80 movies)

28 May 2014

 

The Youth for Tawergha Organization webmaster has collected 80 Arabic movies on the Tawergha Youtube channel the last couple of years.

 

Last week we have created dedicated media pages to display all those youtube movies on the www.tawergha.net website.

 

The links to the 8 media pages are posted on the Tawergha twitter account which is followed by nearly a thousand Libyan tweeps so that's another major contribution to the ongoing awareness campaign.

GFBV report on Tawergha

23 May 2014

 

This week the Gesellschaft für bedrohte Völker Stiftung has released their latest report on Tawergha in support of their campaign to help the internally displaced persons in Libya.

 

We were very happy to have been of assistance to the GFBV Stiftung to supply information and pictures for their report and we hope it contributes to more awareness and aid for now and paves the road to a solution in the long term.

ICC statement on Tawergha

13 May 2014

 

The displacement of civilians from Tawergha in the period from August 2011 to April 2014 appears to meet the elements of deportation or forcible transfer of the civilian population as a crime against humanity under Article 7(1)(d) and as a war crime under Article 8(2)(e)(viii) of the Rome Statute. [ICC]

 

The Tawergha Foundation has provided the ICC with an extensive report based on dozens of official documents and information provided by the victims of ethniccleansing, torture and murder from Tawergha. The ICC has added the report to the file.

Petition to end the torture & ethnic cleansing

13 May 2014

 

For six hours every single minute a Dutch IT company or professional signed the petition form to stop the torture & end the ethnic cleansing of families from Tawergha.

 

We have added the hundreds of signatures into one pdf file which we will send to the NTC, GNC and the Misrata Local Council members by e-mail and ask them to end the Human Rights Violations and Crimes against Humanity right away.

 

It's been three years, enough is enough!

ICT Vakdag exhibition stand 4 Tawergha

12 May 2014

 

The ICT Vakdag 2014 exhibition was a huge success and hundreds of Dutch IT specialists & companies signed the petition to stop the torture and end the ethnic cleansing of families from Tawergha today.

 

They loved the #CyberCubes project for the educational platform 4 the Tawergha IDP camps and we received many invitations to pick up hardware.

 

We will offer the signatures of support for the refugees in the Libyan IDP camps to the GNC, NTC & Misrata Local Council members this week.

Awareness campaign promo movie (Dutch)

11 May 2014

 

ICTWaarborg has reserved us a Lounge @ the Dutch ICTVakdag exhibition tomorrow (2014-05-12) in the JaarBeurs in Utrecht.

 

Today we created the Dutch promo movie to show at the stand promoting the #CyberCubes Project 4 the educational program for the You(th) for Tawergha.

 

It's probably not the greatest movie ever made and if you don't understand Dutch then there is no point watching it at all but we made the effort and hope that counts for receiving the support from the thousands of companies at the exhibition.

Tawergha Foundation Cyber Cubes Project

7 May 2014

 

The educational program for the youth for Tawergha organization was in need of a powerful, mobile, rubust & redundantly available server storage solution.

 

We have set up a joined venture with the Dutch PC & Work Foundation to build the Cyber Cubes at their facility.

 

The project resources and arrangements are well on the way & we expect to deliver the first Cyber Cube within a couple of months.

Libyan Heroes for Tawergha Page

5 May 2014

 

Some of our Libyan followers on the Tawergha Foundation Twitter Page made us aware of the fact that we have a tendency to focus on the negative & horrible actions some of the Libyans have committed against the families from Tawergha.

 

To compensate and rectify the view we might create depicting all Libyans as ethnic cleansers or torturers we have created the Libyan Heroes for Tawergha page as there are a lot of remarkable and kind hearted people from Libya out there.

 

Please send your Libyan Heroes for Tawergha information to: heroes@tawergha.org so we can add them to the page. We know that most of them help from their heart and not for the attention but we think it is a nice thing to put some sunlight on them and it shows the world there are a lot of Libyans out there not agreeing with and supporting the villains & warcriminals.

PC & Werk Stichting meeting

The program included an opportunity to dialogue with the Assembly members, followed by a reception where members from the civil society, business, international organization, government and diplomatic community could continue the dialogue on the most critical issues of the transition.

 

The Networker is an event designed to advance the causes of Libyan civil society through cross-sector partnership on critical issues.

European Parliament discusses Tawergha case

4 April 2014

 

We have send thousands of emails the last couple of months and one of the many people who responded to them was Sir Graham Watson from the European Parliament.

 

He promised us he would certainly raise the Tawerghans’ situation with EU officials and soon after that Sir Graham Watson applied a question for a written answer to the EU Parliament.

 

We are looking forward to the response and are hopeful this action will amount to a solution.

Perpetrators Database

15 March 2014

 

The ethnic cleansing, ill treatment, torturing and murdering of Tawerghans has been unopposed and unchallenged by the Libyan Government, Justice department, army or international community.

 

We are fed up with those fake #Feb17 revolutionaries taking part in the persecution of innocent families.

So beware you murderer, torturer or hypocrite, we

are not only telling your mum but even your grandkids will be reminded what their DNA donor was all about.

 

Please send your perpetrator info to: wanted@tawergha.org

ICC acknowledges receipt of our first official report

10 March 2014

 

After another round of following up on our awareness email campaign, the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court acknowledges receipt of our first official report on the Tawergha issue.

 

The very first press conference on the ICC’s investigation into alleged crimes in Libya, former Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo warned rebel factions that “if opposition groups commit crimes, their leaders will also be investigated.”

 

In her statement, Bensouda specifically mentioned Tawergha, a town outside of Misrata.

Tawergha refugee status and hearing

3 March 2014

 

A family from Tawergha seeking asylum contacted us this week asking for our assistance in obtaining enough information for their lawyer in support of the asylum request.

 

We delivered all the required information to make sure their request would have to be honoured and we will do the same for anyone from Tawergha in the same situation so we recommend the ethnic cleansing is reversed as soon as possible or else all 40.000 refugees might come your way.

ANBI registration Tawergha Foundation

25 February 2014

 

The Dutch Tax Authorities awarded the Tawergha Foundation the ANBI status today.

 

The Dutch Tax Administration can designate an institution to be an "Public Benefit Organisation"

 

At least 90% of the efforts of an ANBI has to be focused on the general good. And since 2012 the 'culturele ANBI' can profit (until at least 2018) from even more Dutch tax advantages.

If in a calendar year the sum of someone's gifts to ANBIs exceeds 1% of the Dutch threshold income, the excess, with a maximum of 10% of that income, is deductible income.

Today we created the Tawergha Foundation Twitter account in support of the Awareness campaign.

 

Please follow us to show your support and follow the latest news and campaign information to assist the youth for Tawergha with their goals.

NTC - GNC - Misrata Local Council member mailing

29 December 2013

 

We've received many reactions on the awareness email campaign and one of those was Mr. Mohamed Benrasali who is one of the NTC members from Misrata and replied for a couple of people we wrote.

 

Although Mr. Benrasali does agree that keeping 40.000 people from a ethnic minority on display in IDP camps for years is not the way you should treat your fellow Libyans in the New Libya he ended up with justifying the ethnic cleansing and collective punishment of Tawerghans with his final remark on the crimes against humanity committed by Misrata:

"..some of those people are criminals (not all of them) and they refusing to hand them over.."

 

Mr. Benrasali couldn't appreciate the logic of our reply asking him how he would think about this kind of justice if it was his own family being locked up for crimes committed by someone from Misrata. By his crooked standards the whole of Libya could be locked up in IDP camps for not handing over certain criminal individuals to the ICC and by endorsing the ethnic cleansing on Tawergha there is a possibility that one day he and his fellow NTC, GNC and Local Council members will have to stand trial for their participation in the crimes against humanity.

A total of 1,690 damage sites were identified from satellite analysis between July 28, 2011 and August 18, 2012.

Building a network and finding opportunities

Building a network and finding opportunities

22 November 2014

 

The last couple of weeks we wrote emails to numerous organizations, foundations, embassies, political parties, governments and important people who could be of assistance to our cause or could provide us with information.

 

We received a contactpoint for our training program from UNSMIL, discussed opportunities with the New Libya Foundation and received a lot of tips and advice.

 

Our network with people from Tawergha living in the IDP camps and abroad has grown and we now have a solid base to build our organization from.

Youth organization for Tawergha

Youth organization for Tawergha

18 November 2014

 

So what can we do to help and where should we start? We found the Youth for Tawergha organization online at www.tawergha.com and with the google chrome translation function we read up on their goals to assist the youth from Tawergha.

 

We decided we found a perfect match and contacted them to ask if we could assist them with:

 

Advancing the return to Tawergha

Creating awareness about their fate

Development of the youth of Tawergha

Employment options for the youth for Tawergha

Obtaining justice for the victims from Tawergha

Official Reports on #Feb17 and Tawergha

Official Reports on #Feb17 and Tawergha

Official Reports on #Feb17 and Tawergha

15 November 2013

 

During our quest for information we where amazed how many organization & country reports on the Tawergha issue existed.

 

Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, UNSMIL, the ICC, IRIN, CFC, ILAC, RefWorld and many more have been writing extensive official reports for years.

 

We have collected and stored all the official reports in chronological order.

 

Without knowledge action is useless and knowledge without action is futile.

Chronological News Items on #Feb17 and Tawergha

Chronological News Items on #Feb17 and Tawergha

12 November 2013

 

In 2011 revolutionairy rebels rose up against Gaddafi and his troops and soon many parts of Libya took part in the uprising. The UN had to step in to assist the freedom fighters as they where heavily outgunned. Even with NATO's support the fighting went on & on.

 

At the end of 2011 our father died and it took us

months to put our minds to anything else. As a result we missed the ethnic cleansing & genocide on the families of Tawergha in the news.

 

We started with building a chronological news items database on the events which ended in the ethnic cleansing, genocide, torture and other inhuman treatment of the families from Tawergha.

Libya February 17th Revolution

Tawergha Foundation website goes live

9 November 2013

 

After being send a facebook message pointing out the satellite images on google earth depicting our formal homes in Tawergha having been destroyed we found the first reports about the ethnic cleansing of the families from Tawergha.

 

As soon as the horror and disbelieve somewhat settled down we decided it was time we build this website in assistance of the surviving refugees.

 

We hope our effort will contribute to their return and well being. Should you have some time or small change to spare, please give us a hand.
