Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.
Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Justice For The World (JFW) is an independent non-profit, non-governmental human rights organization (NGO) based in The Netherlands, Europe, dedicated to protect human rights and to creatively raise awareness about the value of human rights with in particular the right to life, freedom and faith.
We intend to raise such awareness through words and via art almost exclusively by making use of new media with in particular our website and supported by professional volunteers.
- We support the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of the United Nations of the world, which are including almost every sovereign state in the world. We deem it important that at the very least these member states respect this declaration and uphold human rights as described in this document.
- We have been supportive of and thus, by its own definition, part of the Free Culture Movement, which calls for the safe-keeping of a free society and the protecting of artistic creativity within the context of new media and law restrictions.
- We publish important news and report on international human rights matters in addition to our international press releases, campaigns, music and creative input by our volunteers. Volunteers from all over the world can join and contribute creatively almost instantly without much hassle.
We do not at the moment seek or accept donations, expect for creative and other non-financial contributions (Explanatory Press Release).
The World Today
As things stand in this world of today, we are being faced with numerous complicated issues that are still in need of more attention. A lot of people in the world, including in the West, are poverty-stricken and are being treated unjustly. In order to deal with global issues we should not start to overlook the smaller issues, nor should we continue to ignore greater issues out of economical interests, be that the issue of global warming or the persecution in China of the Falun Gong, which to this day, since the start in 1999, is not being addressed in the manner as it should, given the outrages violations to the extend of taking organs from its practitioners without consent and while alive.

Is there still hope for this world?
Mad man are running the show
The human heart has grown selfish
Disappointments are abound
Rage, anger, greed and whatnot are taking over
But no one seems to question himself
Or stop to say that money never made the world go round
Agenda for 2011
Continue to alert the world of that which others are reluctant to speak off and continue with our new course set in 2009.
In 2008 we have mainly addressed the crises in Burma and Darfur that may be more apparent and have received more attention than some other issues that we have addressed, but which are not easy to deal with either. The collective actions of human rights organizations in addressing the situation of Darfur and the proposed solutions have been criticized by some intellectuals. We will go into that deeply in our forthcoming book 'Conscience 2012'. This publication will also give our audience the opportunity to see in more detail what we specifically stand for. To that end we have recently started to specify some of these points, which are summarized here.
International Press Releases
We are releasing press releases on whichever matters we deem important. We advice interested journalists to subscribe to our rss feed on press releases to stay informed, since we have no means to reach every journalist in the world.
On 30 January of 2005 we have published an international press release, which was also send to the European Parliament since it was a mostly a matter of European concern, and which was received with enthusiasm by politicians. From this press release it is evident that we support freedom of religion.
We are currently looking for volunteer experts in various fields.
