Activists Seek International Rebuke of Persecution and Torture Through U.S. Legal System Abuse
The United Nations Human Rights Committee may investigate allegations that the U.S. legal system is regularly used to persecute or torture U.S. whistleblowers and judicial critics/gadflies. A proposed international class action for the group was mailed this week from the U.S. to the Committee in Geneva, Switzerland.
The Logals and Dr. Jackson explain that “(i)n describing violations of their rights . . . , (they) attest to a persistent, national pattern of persecution which for innumerable Americans is torture proscribed by the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights; Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment; and The Universal Declaration of Human Rights.” Elements of the offense are detailed for the HRC and on The Third Degree website which launched officially today.

They ask the HRC to establish a body of fair and impartial adjudicators before which any American can arrange for “patent . . . perpetrators of their alleged PTUSLSA (persecution/
Complaints from private people submitted to the HRC are considered “communications”
According to the complainants, through various machinations, U.S. government makes it impossible for average Americans to provide international tribunals irrefragable proof that domestic remedies are ineffective for targets of PTUSLSA. Their HRC communication adds, “(t)o resign that class of beleaguered Americans to its own devices and domestic remedies as a result, is to facilitate invariably severe and occasionally gross, persistent and consistent human rights violations.”
