This Petition is sending a strong message to Facebook. Apparently, they have heard you . . . and they are scared.

Once again, their response is to ignore the problem and eliminate the voices of those demanding justice – Your Voice.

Causes.com is an incredible ally in our campaign to end the continual posting of illicit images and videos of children on Facebook. Recently, Facebook informed the folks at Causes.com that they have "great resources" that "meet and exceed all of (the) requests from the petition."

Not true. Our demand is that Facebook MUST BLOCK all illicit images and videos of children. Allowing pedophiles to post them at will and then dealing with the illegal posting in a lackluster manner without reporting each offense to law enforcement is not acceptable.

Facebook has been denying this crime and feeding the same empty responses to the media, US Federal Legislators and human rights advocates for years. Their answer is to point to policies and procedures which, given the evidence we see every day, does not work. See the evidence here: http://vimeo.com/41583927

Facebook knows the tricks pedophiles are using to communicate with each other on their website. They have the power to stop them. People from all over the world use these trick s to meet each other on Facebook and share illicit images and videos of children. Yet Facebook does nothing.

Also, award winning journalist Lydia Cacho has written an excellent article about the issue. Please read it here: http://www.lydiacacho.net/23-10-2012/facebook-y-el-porno/

Now, with over 1.5 million members of this Cause, Facebook is suddenly declaring that "they are doing a thorough job of maintaining the safety of (Facebook)" and that we should "move on to another campaign."

No. In fact, we are now redoubling our efforts to expose this issue to the world.

But there is a risk. This Cause can be eliminated at any time. Clearly, that is what Facebook is trying to do. Rather than address the problem of pedophiles openly using their site to abuse children they would rather silence those who want justice.

Please hurry. Sign this petition and share it with your entire network.

Thank you
