This letter from a transnational collective of human rights and civil society organizations was submitted to the UN Human Rights Committe in connection with the the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) review of the USA. It focuses on how the spread of the US' counter-terrorism framework beyond its borders is having concrete human rights impacts like repressing civil society, eliminating due process rights and starving citvil society organizations of funding. The letter focuses on five specific examples from different parts of the world, including Indian-administered Kashmir (others include Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Palestine). The signatories include: Al-Haq, Addameer, Center for Constitutional Rights, Centro de Estudios Legales y Sociales, Colectivo de Abogados y Abogadas “José Alvear Restrepo” (CAJAR), European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights, Movement Law Lab, KLJP, Palestine Institute for Public diplomacy (PIPD), Rede de Apoio às Favelas (Rio de Janeiro), Rede de Advogadas Populares Feministas Coletes Rosas (Rio de Janeiro), Socio-Economic Rights Institute of South Africa and Temblores ONG.
