We call on the Syrian and Russian forces to stop all direct attacks on civilians, indiscriminate attacks and other serious violations. All those who order or commit war crimes must be brought to justice in fair trials.”
The Syrian government continues to show utter disregard for the laws of war and the lives of civilians. These attacks form part of a well-established pattern of systematically attacking the civilian population and constitute crimes against humanity, as well as war crimes.
“Schools should be safe places for children to learn and play, even in a conflict zone. Targeting schools and kindergartens being used for civilian purposes is a war crime.

China extends its crackdown in Xinjiang beyond its borders and intimidates #Uyghurs, #Kazakhs and others overseas. All countries hosting members of the Uyghur diaspora, including the U.S., should take measures to protect them. #NowhereFeelsSafe

She says that protections for LGBTQIA+ refugees/immigrants are in Biden’s plans (I think.) It was a very emotional exchange and the courage of the trans women was very moving. #AmnestyForum Biden is very lucky, imo, to have Ms. Cancela as a rep here in NV.

A powerful question at the #AmnestyForum to @YvannaCancela on the infamous hieleras, iceboxes in which people seeking safety are detained, in freezing temperatures. Fernanda, who asked the question, was kept in the icebox herself and knew someone who died in these conditions.
