Global Strategy - Guy Sinden & Marieke Silvere - Droit au Corps (Francophonie)
What is our major challenge in the medium term? Muslim circumcision. Faced with a global issue where intactivist organizations are politically weak, it is desirable to be part of a broad global alliance. In the path of compassion, an Appeal to open a public debate on the conditions for consent to circumcision is our advocacy strategy, in the prospect of forming lateral alliances with many other causes.

Male circumcision is a crime and slander against Islam
We believe that spreading awareness in the long term is the way to stop child abuse, and this will only be done by constructively and peacefully combining societal groups, based on human rights and human principles so that the child can have a healthy and intact body.

Genital Autonomy Society presentation
The Genital Autonomy Society website and database was developed with the vision of being a social network that did not have the problems of existing social media platforms (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Discord, etc.).

Brett Johnson & Luke Artanis – Cockfight (USA)
The coalition promotes the World Wide Day of Genital Autonomy
The World Wide Day of Genital Autonomy (WWDOGA) is a campaign day to promote genital autonomy, especially of infants, initiated by the German “Facharbeitskreis Beschneidungsbetroffener im MOGiS e.V.”. Since 2013, it is celebrated on each 7 May in many countries.
This date has been chosen because on May 7, 2012, the District Court of Cologne (Germany) has judged for the first time in Germany, that the non medical circumcision of male children is an assault.
Beyond its members, the Coalition strongly urges all its supporters to commemorate WWDOGA with a local action and to promote WWDOGA on their websites, to their network of alliances, to investigative reporters and to local media outlets (TV, radio, newspaper, etc).
